Those of you who follow me on Snapchat (mama411nyc) know that I've been running a full-time infirmary for about three weeks. One husband with a broken foot, one baby on a nebulizer, one six year old with an ear infection and a prescription for amoxicillin that apparently does not really taste like bubblegum. So let's just say that I am MORE THAN READY to get on a plane to Florida this week to visit my parents! As always, there's tons of stuff do to while school is out including on Presidents Day. Just use the calendar which we'll continue to add to all week long. Enjoy the week off, and see you all back here in a few days.
