<strong>Heather Chaet - Writer </strong><br />
<br />
Heather hates bios. She started this bio about 23 times, and that&#39;s about as many former lives as she&rsquo;s had (Air Force brat, actress, stand-up comedienne, Saks Fifth Avenue perfume chick, editor on Wall Street, you get the idea). She enjoys jazz, TV and McD&#39;s French fries. When she&rsquo;s not writing about cool things for Mommy Poppins, she&#39;s blogging for CafeMom&rsquo;s The Family Piggy Bank and The Stir, freelancing for <em>New York Famil</em>y magazine and working oh-so-slowly on a book. On Heather&rsquo;s to-do list: Learning how to cook without using the microwave, fixing her sagging triceps and finding the best apps for her iPhone. You can follow her progress on Twitter <a href="http://twitter.com/#!/motherhoodlist" target="_blank">@motherhoodlist</a>.<br />

<strong>More About Heather</strong><br />

<strong>What&#39;s your favorite place to hang out with kids in NYC? </strong><br />
We hit the American Museum of Natural History at least twice a month, and love heading to Central Park to watch Abe, our doorman, deejay for the roller-skaters.<br />
<br />
<strong>What do you do when you are kid-free?&nbsp; </strong><br />
I would love to say that I hit the gym or a cool dance class or catch a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center, but really, I catch up on errands and write. I should really go back to bed and sleep.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<br />
<br />
<strong>What&#39;s your best parenting moment? </strong><br />
When I told my kid that we can give MetroCards and sandwiches to the monsters at bedtime to make them go away, and she thought that was a great idea. We&#39;ve done that every night for more than two years now.</p>
