Veeps: in Williamsburg

May 13, 2010

This is our newest weekly photo feature called “Veeps” (as in “Vice Presidents” or “VIPS”), that features a Brooklyn parent. Photographer Sarah Sloboda captures our Veeps every week for us. How did we come up with such a title? You, as a parent, are a”VIP”-  to both your kids and to us at the blog. The “vice president” connection? To your kids (until they hit about 13 years), you are a heartbeat away from ruling the world. So, there it is: you’re a “Veep” either way and we think it’s a pretty nice nickname. If you would like to be featured as a Veep- email us!
