Spend a week in Quebec City

August 29, 2008

Another week of fun activities for moms and babies courtesy of Kristi at Ciao Bambino. If you’re a local mum, why not be a tourist in your own town for a week?! Just visiting? Stay at the posh Hotel Manoir Victoria, which has a special entrance for strollers and an indoor pool. What’s not to […]

Plan a staycation

July 30, 2008

After much research on Mexico and Hawaii, Ryan and I began looking at rental houses in San Diego, not wanting to be contained in a resort where our search for a casual restaurant would be an ordeal. In San Diego, we’d get the weather, the beach, and be able to have oatmeal on hand to […]

Spend a CHEAP week in San Francisco

July 4, 2008

Karen Solomon, author of The Cheap Bastard’s Guide to San Francisco, used to work with Whitney years ago when the Internet was fresh and before they were both mamas (when I still lived across the Bay in San Francisco and dated all the wrong guys *sigh*). If you’re coming to BlogHer with children next week, […]

Spend a week in Washington DC

July 1, 2008

All my in-laws live in Washington DC now. They went from being spread out in NYC and Boston to congregating in one city. If I can survive the travel, I’ll test drive this fun sounding week of activities in our nation’s capitol. Local DC Mamas, do these sound like fun to you? Let us know […]

Spend a week in Milan

April 22, 2008

Sending out a huge Grazie to Michela in Milan for rounding out our wonderful set of activities by the moms from BabyccinoBlog. Michela kept telling us how UN-kid friendly Milan is, but she managed to come up with a fun array of activities for moms, babies, and young children. We’re all in favor of mama […]

Spend a week in Paris

March 11, 2008

When we started the “week in” section of our site, it was an attempt to not be so Berkeley-focused. If you’re not our neighbors, there are still a ton of great options that are better than wiping someone’s tushy, right? We’re so happy to share another one in Europe — where neither of us has […]

Spend a week in Amsterdam

February 25, 2008

Last month, we were very lucky to get Courtney from Babyccino to write up a week in London. Now, I’m excited to tell you that we have another fun European city to explore: Amsterdam! Esther has two little ones almost the exact ages as my two… now if we could just schedule a playdate. She’s […]

Spend a week in London

January 27, 2008

We recently “met” Courtney from Babyccino — an excellent blog in which moms in 4 European cities hold an online conversation about life, kids, and style. She is an American from Seattle living in London with her husband and 2 lively sons, Easton and baby Quin (near the same ages as mine!). She shares some […]

Spend a week in Portland

January 19, 2008

My friend Amanda lives with her husband and son and daughter in Portland, so she’s done this maternity leave thing twice. Once with Jed, and now that he’s in preschool, with baby Willa. She’s done us the favor of laying out a plan for the week that offers a rainy day option for each day, […]

Spend a week in Issaquah, WA

June 29, 2007

Shelly, the founder of My Spoiled Rotten Baby, wrote to me with her story, and it seemed appropriate for the Rookie Moms audience. After delivering her son via cesarean birth, she decided that moms needed a little more support than she received during her birth experience. She started teaching childbirth education at a prestigious hospital […]
