Our city has reopened (sort of), so should we celebrate Boca reopening or panic? Maybe a little bit of both? With a curve that continues to spike upward, but also the need to preserve our mental health and support local businesses, what’s a mama to do?
While there’s no instruction manual for parenting in the age of COVID-19, there IS my go-to source for all things pediatrics health/safety related!

Luckily, many businesses have adapted to serve local families, doing everything they can to make us feel safe and more comfortable. No one really knows how to navigate all of this successfully 100% of the time.

However, I’m of the mommy mind that ‘west is best’ and am thrilled to announce a 2020 partnership with West Boca Medical Center pediatrics and obstetrics! Here’s why they are my top choice for hospital care… Continue reading West Boca Medical Center Pediatrics & Obstetrics | How the West Became the Best
As parents, we all know how important summer learning is. There will be no “summer slide” in my house! Luckily, Modern Boca Dad and Mayor, Scott Singer, agrees. He recently issued a proclamation declaring that June 1 through August 31 will be designated as Summer Reading 2020! This year’s theme is “Imagine Your Story” Residents are also welcome to participate in the over 100 programs and classes for all ages at the Boca Raton Public Library (BRPL). I can definitely appreciate some free summer fun!
