Hi, I’m Marinka and I’m raising my kids in Manhattan. Mostly it’s been great. Expensive, but great. I love NYC and I love that my children love it too. But over the years, people have made assumptions about what it’s like to raise children here. Some of them have been waaaay off (no, we don’t have a butler; nor do we live at the Plaza) while others are pretty right on (yes, it would be nice to have a backyard).

For more of Marinka, visit her personal blog Motherhood in NYC and The Mouthy Housewives, where she doles out advice as though it were candy. Mmm … candy. Also, follow her on Twitter, where she never refers to herself in the third person, but does have a potty mouth. Sorry!
