When the invitation from the Boston Ballet arrived, it took me about a nanosecond to decide. “Would you like to be our guest at the opening of Shades of Sound, the Ballet’s brand-new show?” the message read. Yes!
Shades of Sound: Boston Ballet Explores Shape, Light, Sound & Form in Chroma | Leah’s Life: Pearls and Oysters
Ballet companies, just like museum curators, symphonies, opera companies, put together a menu of sorts for their seasons. They offer familiar favorites, seasonal treats, and, like most contemporary chefs, try to give their diners a taste of something new, exciting and different. Shades of Sound is an interesting program. For me, Chroma is the amuse bouche that you wish you could extend into a 12 course tasting menu. This one, bite is seemingly simple but you can’t get enough of it and you wa…
A group of Boston Parent Bloggers celebrated the opening of the Verizon Destination Store located at 745 Boylston Street in the Back Bay.
Take a peek at some of the fun stops they visited while participating in a scavenger-hunt-type race.

Hot on the heels of a historic championship season, the World Champion Boston Red Sox invited several Boston Parent Bloggers to be a part of the inaugural Red Sox Moms Club. The goal of the #RedSoxMoms program is to share events, information, and activities happening within the Red Sox organization. As part of this program the Red Sox Moms will be invited to be a special guest at some amazing events throughout the 2014 baseball season.
As our first event, we were invited to Fenway Park to sample “FenwaYoga.” On June 8th, fans can join a FenwaYoga class taught at Fenway Park by celebrity Yoga instructor Mandy Ingber. The cost is $25 to participate and you must raise $250 for the Red Sox Foundation.

Last week, TD Bank challenged Boston Parent Bloggers to learn more about freedom and flexibility with aerial yoga. Why aerial yoga? Well, TD Bank is all about freedom (offering free checking without the requirement of high balances) and flexibility (many checking options and extended branch hours) – two characteristics that aerial yoga embody.
Personally, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but was amazed that I was actually able to do most of the moves, once I got past my fear of falling. The instructor was great at walking us through the steps, and it was fun to do the class as a group. I was also impressed that the TD Bank execs were right along with us – doing the aerial yoga while wearing their work clothes. That’s dedication!
South Boston Yoga offers this intro class on a regular basis – but it’s not something I would have done on my own. So, a big thanks to TD Bank for getting me out of my comfort zone, and for my fellow Boston Parent Bloggers for being brave enough to try it out!

On the way, the bloggers were joined by a Chef [@ChefJessRD] who discussed ways that the restaurant chain is working to offer healthier options. In addition, the bus of bloggers stopped by a roadside McDonald’s restaurant so they could sample some of the favorites under 400 calories menu including oatmeal, egg mcmuffins, strawberry lemonade, and coffee.
The BlogHer swagfest started early with aweseome McDonald’s snuggies that were handed out to all of the bloggers for the bus trip.
Thanks again to McDonald’s for hosting the Boston Parent Bloggers to BlogHer!
This past weekend, a group of Boston Parent Bloggers and our oh-so-lucky-and-excited daughters had the opportunity to get a “backstage” peek at Fashion Playtes, a local Massachusetts company that offers little girls the chance to design their own clothing.
Before our visit, we received a store credit so the girls could decorate their own clothing. They were shipped directly to the Fashion Playtes office, so they’d be ready for our visit. When the girls arrived, they each received a “backstage pass” which included a list of all of the stations they were to visit.
The girls visited hair and makeup (makeup optional, of course), an “interview” station, the dressing room, and a fun station, while the moms learned more about Fashion Playtes. Each girl had the chance to be photographed with their fabulous outfit, and once everyone was ready, the girls were whisked away to practice for their runway appearance.
When the girls were ready, us moms headed down to watch the show. As the girls headed down 2 by 2 or 3 by 3, they were announced. My daughter was unbelievably excited by how real this runway show was, and she already wants to be in another fashion show!
Thanks so much to Fashion Playtes for providing Boston Parent Bloggers and our children this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Disclosure: Fashion Playtes hosted the event and provided us each with a gift certificate to purchase an outfit.
Here are some other posts from Boston Parent Bloggers who were in attendance!
The event was held at Finale Desserterie and Bakery where guests were treated to a delicious spread of tasty treats.
Dr. Meg Meeker, a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and author of “The 10 Habits of Happy Moms,” gave a presentation that touched on tips on dealing with fevers in children and keeping a healthy household.
She also stressed the importance that mothers should not parent out of fear, instead they should trust their gut when it comes to the health of their children.
The new Vicks Behind the Ear thermometer is a great way to quickly get an accurate reading for the whole family especially the sleeping baby and the wiggly toddler.In addition to thermometers, the same manufacturer has other complementary products to help keep the family and the house healthy over the winter season including a wide range of humidifiers, vaporizers, and monitors. Each attendee was sent home with a bag of products to sample.

This past Wednesday, several members of the Boston Parent Bloggers community celebrated the launch of Mom.com in the Boston suburbs with a party at Isis Parenting in Needham, MA. Local bloggers were invited to attend the media-only portion of the event, and had the opportunity to interview Andrew Shue (formerly of Melrose Place and co-founder of CafeMom/Mom.com) before the party opened up to other attendees.
Andrew talked about why he co-founded CafeMom/Mom.com (because he saw the power of moms after founding his first charity, Do Something), why the Boston suburbs were chosen as one of the five communities for the launch (because of the economics and demographics of the area), and how he thinks Mom.com can evolve into a powerful community for moms.
For a limited time. Mom.com and Isis Parenting are doing a drive to benefit Room To Grow. Sign up through this link and $2 will be donated to Room to Grow!
