Breastfeeding in public – you can help.

Many of you have emailed me after reading my Amtrak story to ask whether there are laws in Massachusetts that protect women breastfeeding in public. As it turns out, there are not. But there is legislation in progress. From what I can see, the bill that passed through the Senate (S 2438) offers broader protection than the one that went ... Read More »

Busted for Breastfeeding on Amtrak

This is the sort of thing I read about in newspapers, but isn’t supposed to happen to me. But it did. A couple of weeks ago, after spending Rosh Hashanah in New York, we decided to travel back to Boston on the Acela train. Zev doesn’t love long car rides, and he’s got a great set of lungs, so we ...

Big Apple Circus Goes Back to Basics

I’ve been going to the Big Apple Circus for a long time, but it still came as a bit of a shock to realize that they are celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year. A circus is supposed to be a long-standing institution. It’s not supposed to be approximately the same age as me. How can I be older than a ... Read More »

Best. Birthday. Party. Ever.

My little one turned four this past week, and after all the hullabaloo surrounding the birth of my nephew, I hadn’t had much time to contemplate a birthday party. So I decided to cut my losses and schedule the party at the new local MyGym. It wasn’t as economical as doing it myself (last year, we did cupcake decorating at ... Read More »

Stroller Speed Dating Returns

Our first foray into Stroller Speed Dating in February was a rousing success. Feedback from the parents-to-be who attended was outstanding, and we’ve been working hard to get this on the schedule at all three stores. This Thursday night, April 3rd, we’re bringing the fun to Hingham. If you’re in the area, or anyone you know is expecting and in ... Read More »

Stroller Speed Dating to Debut in Brookline

One thing that is fairly consistent about Magic Beans staffers is a flair for all things creative. We have a disproportionate number of southpaws on our team, and you know what they say about lefties – we think with the right side of our brain. Anyway, I digress. One of our clever Beansters came up with the idea to do ... Read More »
