What Mazzy’s Been Up To

If you haven’t noticed, I took some time off from writing for Babble. Since Harlow was born in mid-November, I’ve been finding it difficult to find time to parent, blog (both here and on Mommy Shorts) and as of last month, go back to work.

Well, now I’m back, with a lighter posting schedule (something had to give!), and a plethora of topics to write about.

Mazzy has obviously still been out and about, living her life as a three-year-old on the streets of New York City. That makes her sound like she is homeless, but I assure you, she has somewhere to sleep at night (whether or not she chooses to actually sleep).

Here’s what she has been up to since I took my Babble hiatus, all documented on Instagram— if you want to follow me, I’m @mommyshorts.

    Why play the harmonica at home when you can potentially make some change playing it on the street?
