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!).

Sing A Song with Moo Moo Musica

Moo Moo Musica is a multi-language music, dance, and play class that stimulates motor and social skills – as well as messages and experiences that support ecology and community. And it’s perfect for spring break because they are there for you whenever you are free. While most music classes require you to purchase a series of weekly classes, Moo Moo Musica offers classes Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and you can drop in for one, or one every day. Also, the price is the same for the whole family (a blessing for parents of twins or multiple littles under 4), and there’s no restriction that requires one parent per child, as there are at many baby classes. Older siblings are welcome, if you want to take baby to class while big kids are on break.

Bonus: Keep an eye out for special $10 classes that pop up frequently (usually on the First Friday of the month). And your first class is always free.
