Mom Central was invited to a media event to cover the opening of Legoland Discovery Center. All opinions are our own. My four-year-old is a girly girl. Something about the insistence of tutus, tiaras and impromptu renditions of Frozen’s “Let It Go” in the supermarket aisles makes me scratch my head and wonder how she got this way. So when we were invited to go check out the new Legoland Discovery Center in Somerville, MA, I worried she might be bored. Sure, we play with Legos at home, but only the pink ones.

Finish Power & Free
Disclosure: I’m part of the Finish Power & Free Alliance of Moms and received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review, as well as compensation. The opinions expressed here are my own. As funny as this may sound after experiencing the longest winter in recent memory, I absolutely love the change of seasons. Even when that change brings on bitingly cold New England winters, a new season means I get the chance to cook, create, and spend time with my family in a whole new way. As our days become filled with sunshine, I constantly think of new summer dishes and delicious meals to fit a new season of warmth and adventure.
Varda Epstein
Periodically, Mom Central poses five questions to individuals or organizations to gain insights, wisdom, and a better understanding of key issues facing today’s families. Recently, we checked in with Varda Epstein, Communications Writer and Blogger with Kars4Kids, on topics ranging from parenting to philanthropy to the importance of unconditional love. Here are her responses to our five questions: 1. Tell us about Kars4Kids — what's the mission? It’s all about leveling the playing field by providing the extra something that a child needs, but lacks for one reason or another. For example, a child may need homework help or a mentor. An inner-city child can receive a scholarship to attend a summer camp where opportunities abound: a chance to play sports never played before; an opportunity to learn, firsthand, where such foodstuffs as milk and eggs come from – firsthand attention he craves but may not be getting at home.
New Balance Girls’ Night Out!
Spending time with friends after work and other obligations is always something we want to make time for. Taking that time to catch up with my friends and loved ones not only helps me have fun and relax, but also helps me keep in touch despite our busy schedules. As great as it is to read updates on social media, it certainly doesn’t replace our time in person! Sometimes it’s a juggle to make time for fun after work, as one of the other ways I de-stress and keep up my fitness routine is through exercise. I’m a member of a gym and enjoy taking cardio dance, spinning, yoga and strength training classes. I love inviting friends to join me for these programs so that we can get our workout in, and then have a healthy dinner afterwards, but sometimes this poses a challenge, as not everyone is a member of the same fitness facility.
Providence, RI
Mom Central received complimentary lodging. All opinions expressed are our own. Even in the summer, every day seems busier than the last, and we rarely get the time to think about vacations, much less actually take them. So when the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Rhode Island invited Mom Central to come to Providence, I welcomed the break. The close proximity to Boston makes Providence an attractive getaway option. Without needing a car, you can get to Providence directly from Boston courtesy of the MBTA, arriving in a little over an hour. With amazing nightlife, delicious food, and activities for the entire family, my boyfriend and I experienced a weekend of pure fun and relaxation.
Until now, I was a blade guy. So when Panasonic sent me their Arc 5 wet/dry electronic shaver, it had to pass a couple of pre-requisites before I would even take it out of the box. Namely: -       The Arc 5 had to work in both wet and dry mode -       It had to give me at least a week of shaving without recharging -       The resulting shave had to make me look good – and that was a major challenge Out of the Box and Into the Shower So the first thing I did was charge up the Arc 5 and give it a test drive in the shower – could it replace the blade I use every morning?
