I miss New York. As I sit in our UES rental apartment and I can just imagine my fantasy life. I want to be a lunching lady! I want to meet my friends, from RCDS, MHC, and beyond and have lunch with our small children followed by a playdate at our gorgeous apartments. Of course in my fantasy we own this posh apartment, we don't work, and our children are always well-behaved. :)

I don't even really care that our vacation is being rained out. I love feeling like I live here again. We even ordered in from Falafel House - this tiny hole-in-the-wall by our old 91st street apartment. Our aparment, by the way, is rocking. It's on the 17th floor of a great doorman building. It has huge beautiful windows and a balcony. Perfect. Oh, and every little boy deserves a huge bathtub.

I had a great day. Here's proof.

Sorry I couldn't make it up, this week. I was going to try to come up, today, but I had to finish a bunch of work assignments. Boo. I miss you guys.

We are planning on going to NYC this summer. How did you find your hotel? Also do you use a car seat in a cab? We have a 6 year old and an 13 month old baby and we really want to take a weekend getaway trip to the city.
Any hints?

It's actually someones extra apartment. We put an ad on craigslist and really lucked out. Try AirBnB too. An apartment is sooo much better than a rinky-dink hotel room with children.
As for cabs, not sure - we always ride the subway. Which is HARD with a stroller (post for later).
All the trouble is worth it. NYC is a city all children should be familiar with.

Any chance T can meet Trucker while you're here?

Let's start a lunching ladies club! Luca and I had a great time yesterday. It was so much fun watching the kids play together. I, too, wish we all still lived in the city. Who knows- maybe we'll all end up there in the future!
