I'm hosting a birthday party for our three year old at our local park. We are on a tight budget and can't afford entertainment. The park has a large sand box with two jungle gyms at either end. The park staff said the park itself should be enough at that age. I was thinking of bringing some chalk, balls, jump ropes, and bubble wands. Do you think that's enough?
Looking for a somewhat easy read since my brain is usually a little fried at night. Something starting from 1 year and on preferred but if it has a little bit of the first year too then it’s ok. Thanks!!
Birthday outfit ideas and gift ideas?

I have chronic pain and fatigue and am having a hard time playing with my 11 month old. It depends how well I feel that day, but I can play for a few minutes at a time throughout the day before I'm worn out. It seems most days go by with me laying on the couch or floor with the tv on and my kid playing with toys by herself near me. Are there any activities that other parents with chronic p... More
Anyone else celebrating Pride Month with their kids? Do you have any activity or book ideas to share? Mine love the parades (obviously) but we've also been reading books and playing games all month around the themes of love, freedom, family & identity. It's been a lot of fun and also so fascinating to explore how they think about these pretty heady concepts! My favorite moment was... More
So you can actually bid to have your dad’s head sculpted out of cheese for Father’s Day 😂😂 https://www.google.com/amp/s/people.com/food/kraft-cheese-sculpture-fathers-day/amp/ I also saw some reinforced boxers so men don’t get kicked in the privates while they’re babywearing. What other crazy/silly/random Father’s Day gifts have you seen floating around?
I stay home with my 7 month old everyday. What are some activities to help keep him entertained? Or maybe some learning games? Just things I can do with him to help fill the day. The day seems to drag on and on and I feel like I’m not stimulating him enough. He gets bored within 10-15 minutes in his jumper, activity saucer, and playing on the floor with his toys
Piggybacking off of this sweet Mr. Rogers post about talking to kids, what is your favorite memory of Mr. Rogers as a kid? What lessons have you taken into your life as a parent? Mine is just patience. Mr. Rogers was also so patient, so happy to talk to kids. I try to remember that when I get frustrated with my own LOs. https://winnie.com/post/on-freddish-mr-rogers-thoughtful-3958a848
'Won't You Be My Neighbor' opened in select cities over the weekend and is being released in more cities throughout the month. Has anyone seen it yet? Was it amazing?? http://focusfeatures.com/wont-you-be-my-neighbor/theaters
A couple of months my wife and I took our 1.5 year old daughter to the toddler gym. We all got sick a day or two after going. I want to go back because we had a great time, but I'm worried about our family getting sick again. Does anyone else feel like this and what would you do?
“Once, Rogers provided new lyrics for the “Tomorrow” song that ended each show to ensure that children watching on Friday wouldn’t expect a show on Saturday, when the show didn’t air.”
Father's Day lands on my 21st birthday this year and I don't really know what to do? I have ideas of gifts to buy for my husband, but he constantly tells me not to buy him anything. Should I listen to him or should I just ignore him and get him a gift? I want to get him something meaningful and special. Anyone have any ideas on what to get him?
