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!)

My Child Will Be a Star (or Else!)

Join the Pasadena Musical Theatre Company’s 2011 winter  production of My Child Will Be a Star (or Else), directed by Ryan Scott Oliver. “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” “When Ya Got It, Flaunt It,” “Gimme Gimme” and “Forget About the Boy,” are among the songs in the electric review inspired by musicals based upon movies, [...]

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. [...]

A Bus Ride, a Play & a Thank You Note

A Bus Ride, a Play & a Thank You Note

Dateline: Alhambra, 10/5/10 Twenty-seven students and three teachers headed to the Mark Taper Forum to see a Young Audience Program of The Glass Menagerie. Beforehand I must confess I sweated out the roll-taking, the body-counting, and the alphabetical lineup to the bus. But hadn’t the kids signed my homemade Pledge of Conduct, agreeing to sit [...]

Young Jazz Quartet for ArtNight

Young Jazz Quartet for ArtNight

As part of ArtNight in Pasadena, a remarkable quartet of young musicians who call themselves Solstice will be performing at a free concert in Old Pasadena early Saturday evening. (We know, ArtNight is a Friday-night event, but this fall it seems to have expanded to meander over three days.) The kids are all students at [...]

Etiquette: Job #1

Etiquette: Job #1

As a Mother of Boys — or a MOB — I feel like I have a duty to prepare my sons to take their place in society someday as informed citizens, productive employees, and really excellent dates. While teaching them about voting and completing chores may seem more important than, say, the art of small talk, [...]
