A Weekend Getaway! – June 26 ’12

Recently, I worked on a mini-article for The New York Times about the importance of couples taking vacations without their children (coming out before July 4th); well, I think it’s just as important sometimes to have a vacation with your best friend sans the kids, too! My BFF Amy Palmer and I had an amazing weekend out east. It was so relaxing and was the absolute perfect getaway! My husband told me that everyone at our beach club was telling him how amazing he was for letting his wife “go away for the weekend;” My response? NO COMMENT! I am constantly working what feels like 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and sometimes truly need to recharge my batteries. We had the most amazing weekend! Not only was the weather a perfect ten plus– allowing us to take long drives throughout the magnificant east end and take walks on the beach and lounge while reading books and magazines– but we also ate green and healthily and had a Delysscious dinner at Nobu Saturday night where we ran into a million friends, watched the beautiful sunset, went to the fresh fruit farm and picked out the most Delyssious fruits and vegetables for the boys. Jackson went on about how “GOOOOOOOOOOOD” the peaches were!!!

I finally took the boys to see Madagascar 3 last night!!! Oliver was boogieing down to the Afro Circus song. Have you seen it? It’s absolutely hilarious. I was cracking up!! Jackson loved it too. Definitely take the kids to see it!

Tonight we have our BeautyLysscious event at Dr. Rowe’s office with over 100 DivaMoms coming to get beautified before we really get into the swing of summer. Also– Don’t forget– whenever your child falls this summer, Dr. Rowe is there to help at all hours. If your child falls resulting in a laceration needing emergency stitches for repair, Dr. Norman Rowe, MD is available 24/7. Call 212-628-7300 or 917-309-7233 at any time of the day or night when the accident occurs.Who better than a board-certified plastic surgeon to give your precious child stitches after an accident?! The best part is Dr. Rowe’s team will meet you anywhere, including your home or whichever emergency room you know your family feels most comfortable with, or their NYC office. Dr. Rowe has so much experience and is known for leaving minimal scarring and is also known for his revision/reduction work. He is definitely one to be trusted when your child falls because nothing is more important than the health and safety of your little one!!

I CANNOT wait for Ollie to start Pierce day camp on Thursday!! Can’t come soon enough; he’s definitely starting to get bored in the city. Not going to lie, I may have a Diva Moms camp countdown myself!

Love seeing the pictures up on facebook of all your kids having fun at camp! Keep posting please!
