Burned-out NYC moms prepare for weekend away from kids, COVID-19

“I’m not an octopus,” mom of three Lyss Stern yelled as one kid cried out over a school Zoom-lesson malfunction. “I have to remind my kids all the time I only have two arms!

“This is exactly why I’m planning a weekend getaway just for moms,” she added, tuning out the chaos. “We need a break.”

Stern, the 47-year-old founder of NYC social-networking site Divalysscious Moms — which she calls “ ’Sex and the City’ meets mommy-and-me” — is hosting the first-ever “DivaMoms Getaway Weekend” to provide local mothers a chance to unwind and unplug. On Friday, 25 women will head to Tyler Hill Camp for the retreat. The camp is set on 220 acres in Tyler Hill, Pennsylvania, in the Poconos.
