Life in Boston

Life In Boston as a mom - Boston Moms

Are you a mom in Boston? Well, first and foremost, a big high-five to you! You’re not just any parent, you’re navigating the streets of Bean Town, where history comes alive.

The History

Life in Boston is like stepping into a living history book. A leisurely Saturday stroll can take you past Paul Revere’s house, and suddenly your coffee chat shifts from playground politics to the American Revolution. Not everyone can casually boast about running into a founding father while sipping on their caramel macchiato, can they?

The Education

When it comes to education, Boston offers a backstage pass to a concert of top-notch schools and universities. Who wouldn’t want their kids to learn in the same city where Benjamin Franklin once studied? It’s like getting an academic celebrity endorsement. And we can’t overlook the parks, museums, and galleries.

The Attractions

Life in Boston offers a veritable treasure trove for families with a wide array of attractions that cater to all ages and interests. The New England Aquarium, with its magnificent marine life and immersive exhibits, is a must-visit for both adults and children alike. For those interested in the stars, the Hayden Planetarium offers cosmic journeys that will enthrall the entire family. And let’s not forget the iconic Fenway Park, where you can catch a Red Sox game and introduce your children to the spirit of baseball. And if you want a taste of nature amidst the city, the Boston Common and Franklin Park Zoo provide expansive green spaces for picnics, games, and wildlife viewing. The city offers a rich mix of educational and entertaining experiences making it an ideal place for family outings.

So, being a mom in Boston is like being a tour guide, a history teacher, and a jungle gym all rolled into one. But hey, that’s what makes it an incredibly cool place to raise a family, don’t you think?

As my oldest son has demonstrated trustworthiness, we are building the skills he needs to gain further independence. He no longer has to hold my hand to cross streets, because I know he'll stay close and not run recklessly. Now when we come to an intersection, I ask him, ‘Are we safe to cross?’ He gets to make the decision — but I have to sign off before we move forward. Before I trust him to do it independently, I am teaching him the skills he needs to do it safely.
