Ah, Monday.  It’s hard to wind up a weekend.  Do we need to tell you why we don’t like manic Mondays?    Immortalized in song and lamented by parents worldwide, the beginning of the week is often accompanied by a long to-do list and a big question mark where your imaginative ideas should be.  We’ve got a few to get the wheels turning again and the week off to a smooth start.  So check out some fun things you can only do on a Monday and make Monday morning all you hope it can be (thanks Mamas and Papas!).

Library Storytimes

Several branches of Los Angeles Public Library as well as the Beverly Hills Library have morning programs for infants up to preschoolers. Older kiddos of 3-8 years old can pack a pillow and head over to the Hastings branch in Pasadena for a sweet PJ storytime at 7:00 pm.
