We spent the holidays on the East Coast this year and made our way into NYC several times to explore and enjoy a few date nights. The day we took Romeo, it was sunny and 60 degrees outside! We made a quick stop at Levain, the best cookie shop in the city, and then walked around Central Park. Romeo does this interesting thing when he likes something or the environment he’s in, he stops and lays down. I know weird, but he did it several times in NYC so I’m guessing he had a good time. We stood in line so he could play the “Big” piano at FAO Schwarz. They were only allowing each child a few minutes as the store was packed during the holiday season. Romeo absolutely loved it of course, laid down on it and even did what we call “The Move” – his signature dance move. The entire store knew when his time at the piano was up because he literally screamed as we made our way out of the store. I couldn’t get him to stop so my last resort was to whisper in his ear “okay, more piano” knowing that was a bit of a lie and that we were making a bee line for the front door. Thank God he bought it! Little white lies are okay, right?
When we visited Brooklyn we left the little guy at home! We stopped by Mast Brothers and did some chocolate tasting. The truffles were out of this world. We also shopped some adorable boutiques and stuffed ourselves with Shake Shack… I’m a fan.
