Exciting News (New Job!)


I like to get dressed. And, even more so, I like to get my kids dressed. So, as it were, when I saw a job posted on a moms group I follow on Facebook to be a stylist for Mac & Mia, I thought – that is for ME! Mac & Mia is a clothing delivery service for children ages 0 to 6 (much like Stitch Fix, if you’re familiar). You give me details about your kids (she hates red and will only wear dresses and skirts, for example) and I fill a box of 8 to 10 clothing pieces and send them to you. You look them over, try them on your child, keep and pay for what you like, and send back the rest. Easy! Convenient! And oh so fun for me!


It’s a part-time, work from home job which makes it even that much more appealing and the only way it would work with our little family right now.


Mac & Mia has tons of clothing brands I work with to find just the right pieces for your little ones. Some favorite brands like JoJo Maman Bebe and Hatley. Some new to me brands like Angel Dear (for babies, SO cute). And of course they’re all fun brands like Pink Chicken.


So…that’s what’s new, it was time I shared! If you’re interested in signing up and learning more you can use my direct link for Mac & Mia here. Or my stylist code is JessJ.



He won’t eat a wedge of a clementine, rather, take half of one and suck out the juice.


She helped me stamp and mail all of our Christmas cards this week (and took the job very seriously!).


Happy Thanksgiving! We had a great day with family that was relaxing and filling, exactly how it should be!


He learned how to “cheers” just in time for Thanksgiving.


Doing her own workout after our Baby Bootcamp class this week.

So I missed a few weeks of my weekly photos of my children, but fear not, here they all are in one post!


Found her playing away on the piano at an indoor play place.


Enjoying the fall weather (and fall fashion trends).


Her new ballet studio also incorporates tap at the end of each class – to say she is enjoying dancing in loud shoes is an understatement!


Evening milk drinking/crawling around ritual.


“Mommy, take a pick-cha of me and dis stachu!”


At least he now reads the books he knocks off the shelves.



We had a 45 minute wait at my eye doctor appointment the other day and after the snacks were gone there was nothing left to do but try on glasses. And I didn’t think she could get any cuter…


We went to a new (to us) indoor place and he was obsessed with this little log cabin – it even had a grill, picnic table, and espresso machine.


How are there only 12 weeks left in 2015? Anyway…


This boy is unstoppable on playground stairs – up, down, everywhere!


She asked me to go to the complete opposite side of this playground structure to get a picture, which I did, and once I was there she screamed “nevermind, mama!” and walked away. I took this photo anyway.


After dinner at Wagamama in Harvard Square last weekend everyone got a little taste of dessert…


2 sips of Daddy’s shake for him (his face = past his bedtime and cranky)…


…and a pink cupcake for her!
