Tick, tock–Mother’s Day is almost here! So to help ensure it’s a day to remember, we chatted with the moms behind Well Rounded NY to get you some ideas on how moms really want to spend the day. Read on for more.
SF: Tell us a little about your site.
JP: Well Rounded NY helps you navigate, revel in and even celebrate pregnancy and parenting in the city. The site curates everything hip, stylish and city-friendly for expectant and new mamas, including style, beauty, wellness, indulgences, and of course, your little one
SF: What kind of moms are you?
JP: I’m an urban mommy for sure. We’re always on the go, exploring the city and checking out new stuff. My mom style is practical, but also chic and stylish because I often have to go from a playdate to lunch meeting.
KV: I’m definitely an urban mommy as well. Because New York is such a walking city and being a mom is so physical, my style is pretty casual. Even when I dress up, I make sure I’m comfortable. Yes, you can still be stylish and comfortable at the same time.
SF: What are you doing for Mother’s Day?
JP: I’m planning on doing some of my favorite NYC things: wandering around the neighborhood, hitting the park, going to the farmer’s market and eating at one of the kid-friendly spots down the block. Oh, and sleeping late would be nice too!
KV: I’ll be spending Mother’s Day with my own mom and older sisters who are moms. It usually involves brunch and then family time at my parents’ house where the kids can play, and we can gab. Lots of laughs are inevitable.
SF: What’s on your Mother’s Day wishlist?
JP: I’d really love a new coffee maker and a big stash of some unique blends of coffee so I can spend more time awake with my two daughters, of course!
KV: Yoga classes and maybe a new blender.
