How Our Summer Is Like With Two Kids In The City


Sponsored content: This post is sponsored by the Wonderbra brand, but opinions and content expressed here are my own.


When Summer comes to the city, I know it's always a super busy time for us and honestly, our days start so early with tons and tons of activities that we end up exhausted at the end of the day.

Now that Olivia is walking and even running faster than Nico, I'm a very busy mama trying to plan our 9 to 5's in advance so we can enjoy and take a full advantage of the beauty of summer.

I put together a list of what our day is like this season, including some ideas for each of you, if by any chance you're lucky enough to be in Montreal.

Ps. endless thanks to the Wonderbra brand, for gifting two pieces of their lovely Spring 2017 collection (:


 Cheers to summer in the city!


OUR SUMMER MORNINGS & WHAT I WEAR

What we do: Our super early mornings are always packed with lots of cuddles and yumminess. Oli is always the first one running to our bed to wake us up, have her bottle and play with Nico. Both of them have their first breakfast at home (yeah, they eat so much they have more than one), including a small portion of fruits or a cereal. After all this hectic time, it's mama's turn where I plan what I'll wear, because when summer time is here, I make sure I keep my colorful ootds out there. 


What I can't live without: Holding Olivia most of the time and help Nico exploring around has left my back in a comma. My essential (and number one) item I can't live without when I'm planning my outfits in the morning before going out is to be as comfy as I can and also to support a bit this poor back of mine with the smoothing and always stylish, WonderBra Smooth Back Wireless Bra.


As an always on-a-run and super busy mom, it's awesome to have THE perfect lingerie right next to you, making sure the back smoothing features and the beautiful lace details you can't see under my looks, that are usually tons of silk and flowy shirts, never ever fail me. You'll adore wearing a trendy model E2590 like this one, available at thebay.ca and all with adjustable straps, making them the perfect fitting bra.

Trust me, comfort has never felt and looked so good with the Wonderbra Smooth Back Wireless Bra and your back will be so smooth that it'll thank you as much as mine did when I started using them, especially at the end of these long summer days.

OUR SUMMER BRUNCH DATES
What we do: Every weekend, I look for a new brunch terrace to visit, some of them new, some others part of our favorites in the city. Nico and Oli are so used to this activity, they keep asking what's going to be the next place to discover. We usually don't reserve but get there super early, preferably as soon as the place is open. I normally plan our next brunch place at the beginning of the week and do a bit of a research to see if it is kids friendly, the kind of menu available and call asking a few details including if high chairs and changing tables are available in place.

What I can't live without: I need to start with a coffee as soon as I say hi to the waiter, followed by a Bloody Caesar. These are my two Brunch soulmates I simply can't live without, ever, and don't judge me, but I'm not that kind of Mimosa girl.


OUR SUMMER AFTERNOONS
What we do: Here are some of our ultimate things to do to get some of the very best outdoor back to back activities in the city:

- Bike ride around the city: we are pretty close to the Canal Lachine and we make sure we stroll around sightseeing the best of Montreal.
- Picnics everyday, all day: for lunch or supper, every single weekend! check our favorite spots in this post here
- Ice cream breaks: always up for some sweet time with my sweet kiddos, especially if they're from Dalla Rose.
- Festival season: don't be scared and go with your babies, we never miss most of them, including the amazing Mural fest, Jazz fest and the yummiest Little Italy's week.

What I can't live without: being prepared when we go out, including a lot of snacks, water and juices, tons of diapers, wipes and little bathing suits for both Nico and Oli.

OUR SUMMER NIGHTS
What we do: We get spoiled most of the time in our regular spots in our hood with friends, after a long day full of activities, nothing like a well-deserved treat. We tend to be a big group (full of kids and babies) so I make sure we find the perfect location with a great kids friendly vibe. I'll be posting a full list of all very top places in Montreal, very soon (:

What I can't live without: A good warm soup no matter which season especially the Laksa soup from Satay Brothers. I tend to change outfits when we go out for supper and I make sure I always carry with me my new set of Wonderbra, always!
