The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging From: New York, New York
Growing up, Samantha was a self-described military brat, travelling from base to base with her family. It is no wonder that when she became a mom herself, she started a blog about travelling with children. Although her child, or as she refers to him, Little Man, has a home base, Samantha has never been afraid to travel with him. With tips on how to travel abroad, domestically, and even in your own backyard, her motto and blog title describe her outlook perfectly: Have Sippy, Will Travel.
And although she’s always on the move, Samantha updates from her travels with pictures and real time advice. Her weekly “Wordless Wednesday” posts give you a true glimpse into her life. These posts are pictures only, as the title suggests, and usually include Little Man on their latest adventure.
With over 150,000 monthly views, her daily blogs cover not only where to take your kids, but how to keep them healthy, save money, pack accordingly and tolerate all the little things. Her life advice comes from personal experience and applies to more than just travel. Whether she is discussing upcoming parent teacher conferences, how to celebrate a milestone birthday or getting rid of bad habits, Samantha talks about everything relevant to raising kids. She even includes where to buy the newest kid-related and mom-related toys at the best price.
This mom-on-the-go juggles her teaching career, family, grad school and life all while updating her loyal readers and looking for her next adventure. -- Laura Brothers
