Tinkergarten

index

My girls and I recently tried a Tinkergarten class for the first time and loved it! The Tinkergarten philosophy is that children learn through play. They offer outdoor classes all across the country for children ages 18 months to 8 years old.

Tinkergarten is on a mission to elevate childhood. We’re growing a technology-enabled network of leaders that bring families together in a natural place in their community for classes where kids learn through play. Each class becomes a tight-knit group of children and adults who learn together through well-designed, outdoor play-based activities. We help kids develop a host of important capabilities, including empathy, collaboration, creativity, persistence and problem solving. Our expert-designed classes and activities help kids ages 18 months—8 years develop core life skills while enjoying healthy, fun, engaging experiences in the physical freedom of local green spaces.

Our class location was at Falls Road Park in Potomac, Maryland and our instructor (who was wonderful) was Denise Reznik. You can find her class schedule here. There are many more classes and locations offered in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. To find one near your neighborhood, click here.

At our class, the kids started out by picking up a small bucket with a rock inside of it with their name on it. Then they took magnifying glasses and other tools to go searching for nature treasures in the park. I loved watching my girls do this activity and get so excited about the little things they found like pine cones, wild flowers, seed pods, and even caterpillars!

Next, we came back together as a group and met everyone and sang a cute “Come to Tinkergarten” song. Then Denise read the book, Stone Soup to the class. The story told an important lesson that by working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good is achieved. So then after the story it was time for the kids to work together and make their own stone soup using things they found in nature! All the kids were really enthusiastic about this activity. They all found things in the park to add to the pot and by using their imagination they had created a delicious soup!

The class was a great experience for both my girls and I! It was a fun learning and social environment. The Fall classes start in just two weeks. There are a couple of free trial classes offered at the beginning of September as well. I highly recommend trying a class!

Back to School Haircuts at Cartoon Cuts

I can’t believe summer is winding down and it’s almost back to school time! It feels like every summer goes faster and faster. Why is it that summer goes by so fast and winter seems to drag on forever?! We are trying to make the most of these last three weeks of summer while also getting organized and ready to start school again. My girls picked out new backpacks, we bought school supplies, and this past weekend we went to Cartoon Cuts for fresh haircuts.

We have been getting haircuts at the Congressional Plaza location in Rockville, MD for the past couple of years. Our experience has always been great so it just makes sense to go back to a place where my girls are comfortable. They actually get really excited to go….it’s pretty cute!

I love that we are greeted so warmly when we walk into the salon. I think that has a big impact on making the kids feel comfortable. This time my girls had their hair cut by Hatice and she was wonderful!

Clarahairwash (1 of 1)

My oldest daughter, Clara decided she wanted to go first. Cartoon Cuts has this great hair washing station where the water comes out of Ellie the Elephants trunk! It makes it fun and not so scary for the kids.

Claracut (1 of 1)

Hatice was so friendly and chatted with Clara the entire time she was cutting her hair. She finished Clara’s cut with a blow dry and then put in a clip. And as you can tell, Clara was super excited about the final result!

Clarafinal (1 of 1)

Next up was Mae. This was the first time she let anyone other than me wash her hair! I could tell she felt very comfortable with Hatice and she ended up really enjoying this part!

Maewash (1 of 1)

Mae has really curly hair and I feel like it takes a skilled stylist to know how to cut it well. Hatice clearly knew what she was doing!

Maecut (1 of 1)

Cartoon Cuts always shows Peppa Pig on the TV screens in front of the chairs which is very helpful in getting the little ones to sit still.

Maetv (1 of 1)

Mae was also very happy with her haircut!

Maefinal (1 of 1)

After a summer of spending many days at the pool, haircuts were definitely needed to get the dry and damaged ends off. We couldn’t have been happier with Hatice; she was so nice and did a great job! It feels good to check one more thing off our list before school starts!

We really had such a great experience at Cartoon Cuts in Rockville! I can’t recommend them enough! Another great thing about this location is that you can grab a treat at Starbucks or Baskin Robbins afterwards. Or get lunch or dinner at the kid-friendly restaurants nearby – Baja Fresh, Noodles & Company, and Lebanese Taverna (to name a few).

Head Shot

The DCPS Experience

At DC Pediatric Smiles, we understand that a child’s experience with dentistry is a journey.  Each child enters our office at a different stage along that journey.  Dr Blank and his team are specially trained to identify how to help your child feel comfortable and develop a patient-provider foundation of trust.  Our Laugh.Grow.Smile. approach is critical to this success.

Laugh.

Teeth aside for a moment, we want to start by learning about your child.  Your child’s interest in music, sports, language, art, and dance.  What makes your child excited?  And of course, essential questions like… Paw Patrol or Cars?  …Daniel Tiger or Nemo?  …And Anna or Elsa? (or Olaf?).

Grow.

At each appointment, Dr Blank and the team at DCPS aim to make a real, direct impression on your child.  The goal?  To instill one pearl of practical dental knowledge in your child’s memory.  Sometimes this can be a brushing demonstration, a new way to hold floss, or even a healthy snacking tip.

SMILE.

At the end of the first appointment, we strive for your child to leave the office grinning from ear-to-ear.  Does this really happen?  Yes, most of the time.  And when it doesn’t, we work even harder to ensure that we improve your child’s level of familiarity and enthusiasm with each subsequent appointment.

Sailboat Girls

DC Pediatric Smiles is now scheduling new patients! They look forward to seeing your smiling face in their office soon!

DC Pediatric Smiles is located at 5640 Shields Dr. in Bethesda, MD. They can be reached at 301.363.9026.



Premama Maternity Wellness

unnamed

I am currently 31 weeks pregnant with baby #3! This pregnancy is going by so quickly. Thankfully after a rough first trimester, I have been feeling pretty good ever since! With two little ones who keep me on the go constantly and a husband who works extremely long hours, I’ve had to focus on staying healthy and energized to get through this pregnancy. I’ve been really trying to eat healthy, stay hydrated, exercise regularly, and take vitamins and supplements. A brand that I recently became aware of with lots of helpful “non-pill” supplements is Premama.

One Premama product that I have found especially helpful during this pregnancy is the Premama Prenatal Fiber + Probiotic Soft Chew. They actually taste really good – almost like a piece of candy.

Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom – Giveaway + Discount Code for Teacher Gifts!

StorefrontSign (1 of 1)

I really can’t believe that the school year is almost over! Most local schools are all wrapping up within the next 3 weeks. I’m sure I’m not the only mom who feels like the year flew by! And this was just our first year with a Kindergartner, so I have a feeling it will only get faster from here on. Thankfully we were blessed with amazing teachers and I really want them to know how much we appreciate them. So for our end-of-year teacher gifts we went to Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom in North Bethesda, MD.

Clarastorefront (1 of 1)

Seasons Taproom is a small, family owned business located in the Pike & Rose neighborhood in Bethesda. If you haven’t been yet, I highly recommend a visit soon! They also have locations in Annapolis, Bethlehem, PA, Lancaster, PA, and Morristown, NJ. If you love cooking, then you will be in heaven at this store and if cooking isn’t your thing, you will still be able to pick out the perfect gifts for your kids teachers!

Store1 (1 of 1)

The store is beautiful – sparkling clean and well organized. You are encouraged to sample all the many flavors of olive oils and vinegars. Some of the different flavors of olive oils are Blood Orange Fused, Cayenne Chili Fused, Lemon Fused, Rosemary Fused, and Garlic Infused. These are just a few – there are many, many more unique flavors. Seasons also carries whole fruit balsamic vinegars, dark balsamic vinegars, white balsamic vinegars, and wine vinegars.

OliveOils (1 of 1)

Seasons carefully selects the olive growers that they work with to ensure they are only selling a fresh, quality product. They also directly import their products to deliver a high quality product at a low price. I will never again buy my olive oil from the grocery store after tasting Seasons oils! There is such a huge difference in the taste and quality and the price is comparable to the local grocery store.

OliveOils1 (1 of 1)

The manager at the Bethesda store is Lamia and she is so incredibly knowledgeable about all the products they sell. If you have any questions at all, she will be able to answer them! When my girls and I visited the store to pick out their teacher gifts, Lamia first had us tell her about each of the teachers. Then she helped us select an appropriate gift for each of them. For the teachers who enjoy cooking, we selected a bottle of olive oil and a bottle of balsamic vinegar. For another teacher who doesn’t particularly like cooking but has kids to feed, we selected a gourmet pasta and a sauce to go along with it for a quick and easy meal. And for one of my daughters preschool teachers we chose an olive oil lotion and soap. We had 5 teachers to buy for this year and we were able to get each of them a nice gift without breaking the bank. My girls are so excited to give them to their teachers and I think they will love what we picked out!

Spring Haircuts at Cartoon Cuts + GIVEAWAY!

Spring is finally here! The days are getting brighter, the birds are chirping, and flowers are starting to bloom! I decided this week was the perfect time to take my girls into our favorite Cartoon Cuts for fresh spring haircuts. We always visit the location at Congressional Plaza in Rockville. My girls are comfortable there and the staff is so friendly. When we walked into the store we were immediately greeted by the woman at the front desk and the manager, Melissa. As my girls were playing with the toys in the waiting area, Melissa starting chatting with them and they quickly became excited for their turn to get their haircut. She had such a nice demeanor and a way of making my girls feel comfortable. If your little ones have haircut anxiety, you can rest assured that you are in good hands with Melissa and her staff at Cartoon Cuts!

Clarahairwash (1 of 1)

Clarahairwash2 (1 of 1)

Clara went first with getting her hair washed and loved how the trunk of Ellie the elephant was spraying her hair!

Clarahairwash3 (1 of 1)

My littlest, Mae was nervous about getting her hair washed. Melissa was so great with her, she didn’t pressure her and decided it would be best to just wet her hair with the spray bottle.

Clarahaircut1 (1 of 1)

Clarahaircut2 (1 of 1)

As you can see, Clara was thrilled with her new haircut! At first she was hesitant to cut it because she liked the length but the ends had gotten dry after taking swimming lessons all winter. The fresh cut was definitely needed and she was happy that she still had the length to her hair after the trim. And Melissa did a cute little braid around the side that she loved!

Maehaircut1 (1 of 1)

Next up was Mae! She was blessed with a head full of curls but it definitely requires someone who knows how to cut curly hair. Melissa did an amazing job! She trimmed the ends and added some layers to make her curls really bounce!

Maehaircut2 (1 of 1)

Maehaircut3 (1 of 1)

Mae was very happy with the result!

Claraproduct (1 of 1)

The salon carries a lot of great products specially designed for kids hair. We bought the Knot Genie brush and the SoCozy detangler and I LOVE them! I’m not trying to sell these products or anything, just sharing what is working well for me on the hair brushing battle every morning!

(GIVEAWAY!) Cartoon Cuts has generously offered a free haircut to one of my readers! Simply comment on this blog post for a chance to win. I’ll draw a winner next Monday, April 3rd. Good luck!

Thomas the Tank Engine Rolls into Port Discovery Children’s Museum

My girls and I have visited Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore a few times and always have so much fun! Washington, D.C. really doesn’t have anything like it, so it’s well worth the 45 minute drive just to visit the museum. Port Discovery is located right in the inner harbor so it’s also convenient to check out other places and explore the harbor area while you are there. It makes for a nice little day trip!

entrance (1 of 1)

Once we arrived at the museum, my girls had quite a bit of energy to burn after sitting in the car for a while. So they climbed around on the amazing three-story KidWorks treehouse. This is so great for cold or rainy days when kids need to get the sillies out.

treehouse (1 of 1)

Then we headed up to the third floor to check out the new Thomas & Friends: Explore the Rails exhibit. This is a visiting exhibit and will only be at the museum through May 7, 2017 so make sure to get there before it’s gone! Developed by the Minnesota Children’s Museum and based on the popular book and television series, the exhibition is designed to help kids learn about science, technology, engineering and math through play – while interacting with their favorite characters!

When we entered the exhibition space my girls first saw the life size Thomas the Train model and climbed aboard. The cab has levers and other moveable parts the kids can explore while they play conductor. There are even costumes the kids can wear!

Thomas (1 of 1)Thomas1 (1 of 1)

My girls especially loved the role play parts of the exhibit. There is a little ticket window with paper money and tickets to different destinations where we played for a long time.

Behind the ticket window there are a few train cars the kids can climb into and pretend they are passengers on the train. There is also luggage and other goods they can use to help load and unload the train cars.

On the opposite side of the exhibit is Thomas’s friend Percy. At this station the kids get to help fix Percy’s wobbly wheels. They can experiment with different size wheels, bolts, and rods to see what works to fix Percy.

ClaraMaeTrain (1 of 1)

Just on the other side of Percy is a guide to Steamies, where children can learn all about how they work. To get Percy going, the kids can load coal and add water to the boiler.

Percy (1 of 1)

The exhibit also includes a large train table modeled after the island of Sodor. This was a very popular spot in the exhibit. The table is plenty big and had lots of trains so many children can play there together.

Traintable (1 of 1)

The Thomas & Friends exhibit is so well designed with all of its interactive learning adventures. My girls played happily here for about an hour. It is definitely worth the trip if you have little ones who love trains. They will be thrilled with everything there is to do in this exhibit. After playing in the Thomas & Friends exhibit we explored all the other rooms in the museum. There is so much to do at Port Discovery, you can easily spend an entire afternoon here.

Good to Know:

• The exhibit is best for ages 2 to 7.
• Admission to Thomas & Friends is included with general admission tickets to Port Discovery. $14.95 for adults and children 2 and up, and free for Museum members.
• The best place to park is Harbor Park Garage – 55 Market Place. Ask for validation before leaving the museum to get a discounted price.
• Port Discovery is a stroller friendly museum.
• Food and drinks are prohibited in all exhibit areas, but there is a designated eating area available.
• There are also lots of different restaurant options right outside the museum where you can get lunch or dinner.

GIVEAWAY! I am excited to be giving away a family 4-pack of tickets to Port Discovery. To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post. I’ll notify a winner on Monday, February 20th. Good luck!
