Good. Not so good.

Not-so-good: – Kingston likes to make a tent out of our bedsheets and is always yelling “Tent! Tent!” The only problem is he doesn’t pronounce…


– Kingston likes to make a tent out of our bedsheets and is always yelling “Tent! Tent!” The only problem is he doesn’t pronounce the N. So… yeah.

– One of those nights where you’re out to dinner with friends and your kid is SO bad. We had to tag team the whole “let’s go for a walk” thing the entire time. A lady sitting next to us kept giving him the death stare, and at one point he stood right in front of her, stared her in the face, and picked his nose.

– Hypothetically: If your child had diarrhea in the tub would it be socially acceptable to just walk out the front door and never come back?


– Going on vacation without Kingston. And Grandparents who are willing to make it happen! Camp Grandma and Pops is the best! We’re headed to NYC next week. Any locals have suggestions for us? (I like to do more local-recommended activities instead of the touristy stuff when we travel!)

– Friends who will still go out to dinner with us even after the story above.

-Kingston loves to sing. LOVES it. I’m talking about carrying a real microphone around the house and belting out his favorite songs while bending his knees and making the funniest faces ever.

– Not having to take and be in Hyatt Family Photos this year. Do you know how hard it is to get little munchkins to smile at a tripod? Someone else took them this time and it went about 10% smoother-ha!


  1. I don’t believe that little cutie pie would act out like that! You must be joking or something!!!!!


    Love the red glasses! Too cute!

    Praise the Lord for NYC! Y’all will have so much fun!

  2. NYC!? Shutup! I hope you guys have a kid-free BLAST.

    And I’m not sure if it’s socially acceptable to never come back. However, I find it perfectly logical to save said disaster for your husband to handle at a later time. 😉

  3. Hi Lyndsay! I’ve been blog stalking you forever but haven’t commented until I saw that you’re coming to my town!! Have you ever been to NYC at Christmas? if not you have to see the big tree and ice skate at Rockefeller. It’s actually a total touristy thing to do, but you just have to at least once! Also, eat at Tartine in the West Village. I might send you an email. This could go on and on…

  4. You would love Williamsburg! Its just one subway stop outside of the city. My best friend form Furman lives there and I visited her over fall break. On the weekends there is this thing called Shmoorgusborg right on the hudson. Its a bunch of local restaurants that sell tasters of their best dishes so you walk around and grab a few and make a meal of it. Also a really awesome artisan flea market shop on the way. If y’all are interested text me and ill send you the address! Have a BLAST

  5. NYC: the high line, union square farmer’s market, Bryant park Christmas village…even better skating than Rockafeller. Greenwich Village waking eating tour. I could go on & on!

  6. Everything Brooke said is fabulous. We did all that. I like to stay away from tourist-y stuff too. I read if you want to look like a local, its best to act like you can’t leave fast enough when in places like Times Square. For pictures it might benefit you to at least do the top of the Rockefeller Center if you want a city view. It was worth it. Chelsea Market is wonderful too, and of course we really enjoyed just hanging out at Central Park and Bryant park…and I agree, Bryant park has better ice skating and cute little shops only open from now through March…one of which sells bracelets and necklaces made from old Vinyl records (I thought of you the whole time i was in there).
