UPCOMING EVENTS: Feb 24-28, 2014

Posted on February 24, 2014 at 10:35 AM
Happy greetings to you! We are enjoying the spring weather in AZ - how about you?

We are enjoying the Nat Geo Kids Club so much that we have added listings for events in Glendale and Mesa to our calendar.  We also feel it is important to expose our children to the visual and performing arts.  In addition to the listings for the art museum (special times at no charge to families), the Mesa Arts Center is providing another FREE opportunity for families to enjoy a variety of music every Thursday through the month of March.  

I wish you a great week with your Sweet Peas - let us know what your Springtime favorites are!

ICAN Meeting
Topic: Protecting Your Bubble
This monthly meeting is open to everyone. There can be so much negativity and unsolicited advice given to pregnant women.  Sometimes we need to practice healthy boundaries, and it starts with identifying who and what is negatively affecting your peace bubble.  We'll discuss how to handle friends and family who stress you out.  We'll give practical steps on how to protect your emotional health, and how to politely back out of unsolicited advice.  Mostly we'll reinforce that protecting your peace bubble is an important way to take care of you and your baby!
