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: Westchester, NY
Brooke Lea Foster, Elizabeth Detmer, and Elizabeth Leach are three well-versed moms who’ve retired from Manhattan's city-life to enjoy all the perks (and greener grass?) of suburbia. But, that doesn’t mean they’ve slowed their pace. As former editors, they put their writing skills to good use on Wee Westchester, a blog all about life in Westchester for active, attentive moms and dads. Wee Westchester is a parent's guide to living the suburban life with a family while refusing to become a homebody.
Updated daily with recipes, adventures, and deals, they also have a calendar of local story times and other events to take young children with no shortage of kid-friendly things to do. The writers are adventurous, testing the waters before recommending unique activities like taking one of their 2-year-olds out to high tea.
All three actively seek new places to eat, shop, and play at with their kids and while most of their kids are around 2-years-old, the events they share are far from biased. With a home base in Westchester, they have a surprisingly long reach. They travel to the city and Brooklyn on a regular basis and can offer insight on both. — Leeann Moreau
