The Mint Chip Mama - Parenting & Lifestyle Blog for the Tri-State Area

When we’re not parenting on Long Island, we love tacos, pizza, binge-watching shows at 3am, yoga, the beach, traveling, gardening, hikes, Broadway shows, lemon ricotta pancakes, Clueless, 90210, dressing up for 80s/90s dance parties, trivia, & vodka.

We love our family very much but also really enjoy being left alone. Equally important, we feel strongly that Trader Joe’s is the best store on Earth.

Finally, we’re cool with the concept that sometimes it’s OK to yell at your kids. Mainly because we totally agree that they can be really, really annoying.

Check out our most recent blog posts – including family hikes, gardens, & playgrounds on Long Island, 80s & 90s movies, fun art projects, and what I’m thinking about right now as a Long Island Mom Blogger.

We are always looking for guest bloggers. It does not have to be about parenting. For example, maybe we both read the same magazine when we hide from our family in the bathroom. Do you have something to say? Do you know about a product we need in our lives? What exciting think do you want to share with the world?
