Remember the good old days when you could go skiing up north followed by an afternoon of après-ski? Well, if your life is anything like mine now that I have young children, those days are over. Believe me, there...
February vacation week is upon us in Massachusetts, and I am stressing out about it. Winter break in December was brutal. I am a stay-at-home mom of three kids, ages 8, 5, and 2. My kids are at that tough...
Hello, December! The holiday season is upon us! The Boston area is brimming with fun things to do in the chilly weather! Bundle up, and get ready for a fun-filled month ahead!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, Thy leaves are so unchanging. As this well-known Christmas carol goes on to say (in summary), the tree’s leaves are equally as green in the summer as...
At this point in the Boston winter, it feels like the season will never, ever end. Tons of area museums, libraries, and organizations break out their best activities for February break, but what are you supposed to do in the wintertime that remains after break? It’s still cold, it’s still doing who knows what precipitation-wise, and you might get even more bored than you were before. Don’t fret — here are four ideas of things to do in the Boston area that will break up the late winter boredom beyond February break.
Life with children gets tricky in the winter. If your kids are anything like mine, they need to get lots of energy out on a daily basis. We don’t do well sitting at home all day. When it’s below freezing, and you can’t send your kids outside to play in the yard all day, how do you survive the long winter months? I have some great indoor activities to share with you!
I've been told I need to start liking winter in Boston, if not for me, then for my kids. I really do owe it to them to try to like winter. And, honestly, I'm getting tired of feeling trapped indoors.
We all know Boston winters are no joke! It is essential for little ones to get out and play, and being stuck inside all winter is not an option. Here are some ideas for great winter gear to keep your kiddo toasty warm through this harsh season.
I'll admit it: Winter isn't my favorite season. I'm not a born-and-bred New Englander, and each winter seems to bring new challenges. The first few winters with children weren't that bad — my son took long naps and didn't...
February and I are not friends. We're barely on speaking terms. My whole life, February has been the month where I run out of steam and sink down into myself. In February I feel grey and flattened and as close...
On a cold, cloudy, snowy, New England winter day — let's face it, pretty typical here from November through March — there's nothing that sounds better to me than having a roaring fire in the fireplace, the family nice and cozy,...
With the temperatures dropping and the days growing shorter, it's clear that, as Jon Snow said in that foreboding brogue, "Winter is coming." And when facing that (ahem) cold truth, we can either run away like the white walkers...
It's hard to feel hot when you're freezing. It doesn't get much grittier than a Boston winter. As a born-and-bred Texan, I admit I have some seriously thin blood. I'm the girl in the parka if it's below 55ºF. But...
I am a horrible Bostonian — I hate winter. I do not want to ski. I do not want to skate on Frog Pond. If it never snowed again, that would be perfectly fine with me. From December to...
Being born and raised in New England (I've never lived anywhere else!), I have experienced some of the brutal winters this area has to offer. Add kids to the mix, and snow storms can be more than a bit of...
