A Predictable Plot That Never Gets Old

A Predictable Plot That Never Gets Old

The plotline is predictable: Clara enjoys the Christmas party, the Nutrcracker comes to life, a battle ensues, and the Sugar Plum Fairy leads the waltz—but that Mouse King and his army will always give me the creeps. So we still attend annually, a spectator for Uncle Drosselmeyer’s puppet show, Tchaikovsky’s classic—the Grand Pas de Deux, [...]

Vincent van Gogh on Cement

Vincent van Gogh on Cement

When I was in kindergarten, I had two favorite after-school activities: playing Hungry Hungry Hippo and redrawing my hopscotch court.  My hopscotch chalk drawings didn’t cease until tetherball hit the schoolyard in second grade.  If only I had known there was a future in chalk drawings—some of these 3-D projects are incredible. On Saturday, December 18, professional [...]

The Best Part of Waking Up

The Best Part of Waking Up

“Every day I wake up, I pour myself a cup… The best part of waking up, is _____ in your cup.” If you are able to fill in the blank, or better, sing along with this Folger’s Coffee tune, then you enjoyed a taste of the Rockapella singing crew, the same group you may have [...]

A Winter Concert with an International Twist

A Winter Concert with an International Twist

If you can’t place Estonia on a map, that’s okay, neither could we.  It is probably because we weren’t one of the lucky members of the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC) who got to tour Scandinavia last summer with the Estonia TV Girls’ Chorus. But lucky for us, unlike the college study abroad students who [...]

My Child Will Be a Star (or Else!)

Tree Lighting, Santa & Rose Queen!

Tree Lighting, Santa & Rose Queen!

If your little elf is too shy to sit on Santa’s lap, I don’t blame him. Back in my years of believing, I steered clear of any mall outing that might involve that red-velvet belly and husky voice—writing hopeful letters in the comfort of my living room was much more appealing. Whether your child is [...]

Ivy & Bean Day

Ivy & Bean Day

Forget the perilous Elmer’s Glue, that sinful substance that stripped the finish off my dining room table after I completed my mobile solar system for the 4th grade astronomy fair. (Needless to say, my little sister was allowed only glue sticks.) This weekend, you can let someone else host the science-project mess if you bring your [...]

Eerie Events for Halloween

Eerie Events for Halloween

Ringing doorbells and chewing Kit-Kats aren’t the only Halloween activities for the Harry Potters and Cinderellas of Pasadena. If you’re looking for some safe family fun, with everything from monster music and ghoulish games to creepy crafts and spooky storytimes, we’ve got a pillowcase full of events to pick from: Old Pasadena Halloween Celebrations Saturday, [...]

Parenting the Average Child

Parenting the Average Child

In the era of the Superkid, it can be a lonely road parenting an average child. When you hear other parents talk, it seems like every other child but yours (and mine!) is an academically gifted, award-winning pianist who started a foundation for rescue dogs while averaging 17 points a game as a power forward. [...]
