   If your child can’t go to enough birthday parties, check out the new Mommy & Me Moey’s Music Party classes at Gymtime Rhythm & Glues.  Local mom Melissa Levis, head of the music department at The York Avenue Preschool, creates a party each week, with singing, dancing, bubbles, original music and party favor.   Levis just released her first CD, Moey’s Music Party, so you can sing along to “New York City Kid” (and count doormen and Starbucks) or ‘Sushi Symphony’ at home. Moey’s Music Party Classes are at 1520 York Avenue at 80th Street.   To register for a class, go to or call (212) 861-7732.  For more on Moey’s Music, go to

   Pink Olive Boutique may be small, but it’s packed with baby items, including cool onesies and booties. The shop, billed as “baby, gifts and getaways”, also has gifts for moms, with vintage jewelry and accessories.  And the bikinis (getaways) can inspire new moms to start exercising.  Soon to come, custom invitations and baby announcements.  The store, 439 East 9th Street, between First and Avenue A, is worth a visit just to check out the garden.
