This weekend offers lots of opportunities for you to have fun with your kids AND expose them to stuff you loved when you were a wee whippersnapper yourself. Those things don’t always go together, btdubs, so act while you can.
Children ages two through six are invited to come by the library for a reading of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. Parents of said children ages two through six are invited to sob quietly in the back of the room because THAT DAMN KID TOOK ALL OF HER APPLES AND BRANCHES AND SHE STILL JUST WANTED HIM TO BE HAPPY.
