It is official! We are going to be Long Islanders!
Our family is thrilled to announce that within a few short months, our home and permanent residence will be in the town of Oyster Bay, in the incorporated village of Massapequa Park. Our children will be enrolled in the Massapequa School District 23, my husband will no longer have to commute over the bridge daily to get to work, and we will be a “Massapequa Family”!
For those of you who do not know me, let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jennifer. I am Paul’s wife and Juliana, Louis, Anthony and Joseph’s mom. I was born and raised in the Country Club / Pelham Bay section of the Bronx. Up until now, I have always lived within a one mile radius of the home I lived in when I was born. Although I am very excited and happier than anything about our upcoming move, I am a bit nervous about leaving the only “home” I have ever known. What is the saying… “You can take the girl out of the Bronx but you can’t take the Bronx out of the girl”? Although I am now a Massapequa mom, that doesn’t mean I will ever forget my roots.
I am a mental health counselor, with my Master’s in Counseling. Additionally, I have been blogging for almost ten years on a variety of forums and sites. My main site is Mommy’s Links, which began as a resource site for pregnant and new moms back in 2002 and has evolved into everything motherhood related over the years. It is now a social network for NY Metro Area moms. We work with a network of other local bloggers and have 8 local blogs that we co-own and run with other bloggers. With the move, I realized it was time for a more localized version of “mommy’s links” (with me being Mommy, of course!), and MASSAPEQUA FAMILY was born!
Stay tuned for local Nassau County family themed events listings, local Oyster Bay resources for parents, and anything about moving “to the Island” from “the city”. If you are a family in the this area or surrounding areas, be sure to bookmark Massapequa Family!
