Good story! I had a jammed packed day and I forgot to schedule 15/20 minutes to make updates to my little girls’ play. I had a meeting and I was panicked. “Oh ok, I need to edit my kids’ play in final draft (no less) and my computer is even kind of broken. I had a rehearsal with the girls at 5, and a meeting with a director at 4. Maya showed up, bored, and said: “What can I do?” She immediately sat down and started making all the changes/edits to the script. As I was running out the door wearing mascara for the first time in weeks, I said to my husband : “She’s doing final draft, can you peek in on her.” He rolled his eyes, but he was on it. Apparently during my meeting they kept texting me that they couldn’t read my handwriting. I came home. Daddy was helping but it was mostly my eight-year-old. 7 scripts printed. Then Maya came down to our theater classroom and filled in for a little girl who will be absent for the show. She played two parts! Um...#mylifeasmommy #playwritingforkids #momlife #nyckids #theaterkidswillbesmart #dotheater#myhubbylove

This was my mini break today and my only break all day. I got off the ferry @1:45 and had enough time to grab this coffee ☕️ and then I had to teach at 3pm. I have 4 theater 🎭 projects going on this week in two different locations and I am rehearsing all of them all week. I also need to bake cookies and apple muffins for my daughter’s culmination on Thursday. Then there’s always the normal stuff: grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning, baths, homework, yelling. I am a mom :). On Friday morning I’m doing a theater camp with my kids on Governor’s Island. I think 🤔 I’m crazy. I thrive when things are chaotic. I do. I spilled that coffee all over myself and on my computer 💻 btw. We don’t know if the laptop will survive, but I’m okay! #mylifeasmommy #ineedcoffee #doingwhatilovetodo #playwritingforkids#mommytired #lastlittlesclass

My sweet baby girl! 💘💕💝💓😍 I gave her lots and lots of hugs and kisses this long weekend. #mygirl #myworld #mylifeasmommy #grateful

And boom 💥 she lost the other one. Maya never looked like this because she had to have one front tooth removed when she was just 5. It didn’t grow in until she was 7! A month after it finally grew in, she lost the other front tooth. So she basically had one front tooth missing for 2.5 years and it was very cute. #nofrontteeth #mylifeasmommy #busytoothfairy #bittersweet #thewafflegotit #mybabygirl

This baby is 8.5 now. This video was taken 8 years ago. Time flies, huh? It’s one of my favorites because it reminds me of what parenting is like in the beginning - all those thrilling firsts: the first time they roll over, the first time they clap and wave. First tooth, first time they sit up on their own, pull themselves to stand, walk, first words...talking, jumping, running. All those amazing, wonderful moments filled my daughter’s and my husband and my life that first year, eight years ago. We were there, together, for all those important milestones. She still does those crazy things with her arms. I used to be with her all the time and when I wasn’t, I missed her. Even though she is 8.5, on the cusp of so many more changes, and life is already so much more intense, she’s still Maya. Mom and dad are still around. And we aren’t always so nice to her. There’s a lot of arguing about TV time. She’s often mad at us these days. She talks back. We don’t like it. She gets in trouble. She doesn’t always get along with everyone. She’s a kind of a tom boy. She won’t wear pink or a dress. Her hair is never exactly combed. She has a little sister who she loves, but there is a lot of screaming in our house. She’s always coming up with exciting ideas. She has so much energy. She is still soothed by mommy and daddy and still needs our encouragement and love. She’s especially receptive to extra hugs at night, when she wants both our arms wrapped around her. And we try to still be there. Though we aren’t there for every moment. We only hear things about school, about fights - and will be around less and less and she grows up - and that’s sort of heartbreaking, but exactly what we are here for. Someday soon, she will be crossing the streets alone. Someday soon we won’t know where she is every moment. Someday soon spending the night away from us will be more normal. But the foundation is there. We love you, we are proud of you. We are rooting for you. You know what’s right and wrong. You are smart. You are beautiful. You always know this. It’s hard to believe she just got a black belt. #goessofast #mylifeasmommy #family #weloveyou #endoftheschoolyear #memories #myfirstborn❤️

How did I not even know that her front tooth was wiggling? Maybe she told me and I forgot?! Oh well. Bye bye front tooth. I think the other one is going to go any moment. I remember when she got her first tooth. #shesmybabytho #mylifeasmommy #sniff #bittersweetmoment #toothfairytime

Last Family Friday for the year. Already?! This morning the girls were getting themselves ready while I was as still sleeping. I know, who are these kids? I heard a crash that came from the kitchen. I sat straight up in bed. “Shit, what’s happened?” Maya appeared at the end of my bed looking scared a few moments later. Since there was no screaming I imagined the worst. Maya:”Mommy, Lilly threw a chair at me.” Me: “Oh, is that it?” #mommytired #familyfriday #mylifeasmommy

If you’ve never seen me as a dance teacher/choreographer. Ha ha. Hard to believe this was my job, for this age too, roughly 20 years ago! Life sure comes full circle :). Now I’m doing it for my own kids. I always loved teaching kids dance. #dance #littles #choreographermom #mylifeasmommy #playwritingforkids #moana #tellthestory

Once a year I go to Brooklyn! My birthday week lunch dates have been off the hook. This was a good idea to spend quality time with different friends all week. Had to fit work in, and I am not normally this social, but spending time with friends is a good thing...esp if said friend just had a baby. Sunny day with Dylan and her baby 👶 today. #birthdayweek #newmom #imhereforyou ❤️ #mylifeasmommy #nyc #williamsburg #hellobrooklyn

It’s already too hot to go outside. Gotta ❤️ New York for the weather. On Monday I was wearing my winter hat and heavy jacket. It rained and rained, thought it might snow. We’ve been waiting for some spring weather for soooo long. Today the clouds parted and we don’t know what to do because it’s that hot. #forreal #nycinmay #toocoldtoohot #mylifeasmommy #cmonalready

Miiiiiiiinnnnne!! Well, at least he was a nice @target cashier 😜 Yup HE was clearly winning at this point, enjoying the spectacle before him..."Mom about to lose it in aisle 9...we have a code 4..." Oh BOY they keep me HUMBLE 🙃
.

Side note: Am I the ONLY one who cringes with fear whenever a code is announced over the loudspeaker...at the possibility my klepto kid has striked again?! 😐 I cannot be banned from TARGET...we may possibly be banned from IKEA...but that's another story!! 😬

I was running some errands today right next to my kids’ old pre-school that isn’t even there anymore. My heart was full of memories of picking Lilly up at noon and how we would go to @sweetgreen. I’d get a salad and she’d get a side of chicken and avocados which she would eat in the park while we played with friends. Today I just got myself and her dad salads (I haven’t been here in a year) and for good measure, I got her the sides, thinking maybe she’d eat it after school. All the errands took so long I was pretty tired when I got home. So I called a minute ago to remind them about the snacks. “Tell Lilly I got her a snack, it’s in the fridge.” She jumped on the phone. “Mommy you got me a snack?” “Yes, I got you a side of chicken and avocados like I used to after pre-school.” (Pause). “You also used to get me an M&M cookie. My friend worked there.” This girl:) yes, I remember those cookies. They became a big part of after school. #thisgirl #kidsremembereverything #memories #iloveher ❤️ #mylifeasmommy

This a picture from Christmas 🎄 I just found it in a text from my mom. We never text each other. We only call (tho she does have an IPhone). Anyway, this is early Christmas morning. Santa’s gifts had arrived and been opened and we had a cuddle with big teddy, Lilly’s gift from Santa. #bigteddy #cuddle #mylifeasmommy #momlife💕

A few hours to myself and I start cleaning my kids’ room. I’m trying to think of the best way to describe this situation. The best answer is to throw stuff in a pile and pretend it’s clean. #homealone #mylifeasmommy #cleaning

Sister ❤️. They fight, but they also play and laugh 😂. There is a lot of love here. I overheard Maya giving Lilly an answer “because I am your older sister.” #sisters #mylifeasmommy #momoftwogirls ❤️
