Heather Chaet - Writer
Heather hates bios. She started this bio about 23 times, and that's about as many former lives as she’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's French fries. When she’s not writing about cool things for Mommy Poppins, she's blogging for CafeMom’s The Family Piggy Bank and The Stir, freelancing for New York Family magazine and working oh-so-slowly on a book. On Heather’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 @motherhoodlist.
More About Heather
What's your favorite place to hang out with kids in NYC?
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.
What do you do when you are kid-free?
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.
What's your best parenting moment?
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've done that every night for more than two years now.
