August in NYC usually means quite a few thunderstorms or days that are so hot and muggy, you don’t even want to leave your house. Having a newborn at home, there were plenty of days during this hot summer that I didn’t think she would be comfortable in her hot car seat while her sister ran around in the park sprinklers, so we spent many days home, and usually bored.
