I have such sweet memories taking my daughter to the Sesame Street Live show when she was younger. Her name is Zoe and all she wanted to do was meet Sesame Street Live’s Zoe. She took her plush Zoe doll with her and held it up for the entire show. When the characters came down from the stage to interact with the audience, she yelled "Zoe, Zoe!" All of the characters had gone back on stage and Zoe was about to go too, when she turned around, came back to us, and hugged my Zoe. It absolutely made her day. I'm thrilled that we have tickets to give away so we are to be able to make that magic happen for another child.
What a great way to kick off Mother's day attending an amazing play with another mother in my life. Especially when you laugh out loud, cheer, clap along, and even shed a few tears, all in one ninety minute time frame.

I was able to take two LEGO-loving kids downtown to the LEGO KidsFest last night. The traffic getting down there, with several other events happening at the same time, made it slow-going. But once we finally got there, WOW! The kids had a blast making structures, participating for prizes, looking, and shopping. We were running late, and got there even later because of the traffic jam, so we had about 3 hours. It was not enough. We only were able to do about half of the activities. So when you go, plan accordingly!
Okay, now that the weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, it is time to get outside with the family. My young kids want to be outside from sun up till sun down. Many afternoons between homework and dinner, we are found outside in our yard playing ball, riding scooters, or playing with friends at the playground. However, when the weekends roll around we are all ready for some fun not found in our own yard.
One of the reasons I love summer is that spring break is over. I have seen so much bad stuff happen during spring break that I can’t imagine any parent allowing their kids to participate in that decadent revelry.
“Oh, I trust my kids,” you might reply. “I know they won’t get into trouble!”

The most frequent concern I hear from parents about their children’s nutrition is “They are just so picky!” It seems like for the first two years your child would eat almost anything you put in front of them, then suddenly dinner favorites are seen as foreign matter and vegetables are not to be trusted!
