Hello, Friday! If Friday had a face, we would kiss it. Anyone else feeling this way? So happy the weekend is here, and a beautiful weekend at that! There’s plenty to do with your little ones and don’t forget to come shopping with us on Sunday!

A beautiful weekend ahead! We are expecting average temperatures around mid – high 60s for both Saturday and Sunday. Perfection.

Around town:

Looking for some family fun? Visit Open Barnyard or head to the Mass Audubon Farm Day for tractor rides and games. Does your little one love Mama Steph as much as ours do? Head over to Buttonwood Books for Mama Steph’s new CD Launch! Already in the Halloween spirit? Visit the spooky haunted workshop, the monster madness workshop and in the evening head to St. John’s Not So Spooky Haunted House. Have a sitter? Have fun at Blakeman’s Oktoberfest! On Sunday, make sure you carve out some mommy-time and head over to The Loft at Derby Street for some shopping fun with us. There will be sips, snacks and a discount you won’t want to miss.

Around the Web

The news has been hard to watch lately. We have also had a few scary happenings and headlines on the South Shore as of late. We rounded up some helpful links for you if you are struggling to find the right words to talk to your kids about violence, tragedy, and difficult news.

  • This article from the Today Show shares an age-by-age guide on how to talk to your kids about tragedies
  • The Child Development Institute has a great resource for parents on how to talk to kids about violence.
  • The APA is a wonderful resource as well and shares ideas on how to guide a conversation when talking to children about difficult news.

Read these, share your thoughts with us, and then squeeze your children a little tighter.
