Summer Survival Secrets


Summer Survival Secrets

Okay Parents. It's that time again, and I'm not talking about Summer...at least not exactly.    I'm talking about that point that hits you about a week after Summer break begins when you're kids have said, "Hey mom" for about the 50 millionth time that day and it's only 9AM. I'm talking about that phrase that is akin to nails on a chalkboard, the dreaded, "I'm bored."   Well, before you start day drinking before the Today Show is over, let me give you my Summer Survival Secrets!   1. Invest in some good ole cheap yard toys, like frizbees,     sprinklers,         and yard bowling, horse shoes or criquet. For one,...

Wednesdays are awesome at Guthrie Green!


Wednesdays are awesome at Guthrie Green!

I love Summer in Tulsa and all the FREE things there are to do with your kids. If you keep your ears and eyes open (and read my blog) you'll never miss an opportunity to do something new and fun (and usually free) with your kiddos.    I am often writing and telling people about Guthrie Green. It truly is one of the most amazing additions to the Tulsa landscape, and next to the BOK Center probably the best thing to happen to our city in my 33 years of living here. Their tagline is "A Land for You and Me," and everything is always free there. Any concerts or events will always be offered for free.    This morning, we went to Story Time, hosted by Tulsa City-County Library. There was an amazing crowd!  ...

Free Summer Movies!


Free Summer Movies!

It's time for Summer fun and FREE stuff in Tulsa. There's plenty of time for sun and heat and splashing in the pools and splash pads around town, but let's get real: sometimes parents need an air-conditioned place to take their kids where they will be occupied while sitting down in one spot for an hour or more.    Enter the Free Summer Kids Film Festival at the Riverwalk Movies in Jenks!      This is brilliant because it happens Monday through Friday at 10AM ALL SUMMER LONG. We saw Despicable Me and I was probably the only one in the theater who hadn't seen it yet, so I was laughing louder than everyone else. Hey, when your kids see all the latest and greatest movies with their dad, you miss out! My friends...

Rockin' Out with Tulsa Symphony Orchestra


Rockin' Out with Tulsa Symphony Orchestra

Here's the dealio: in order to not miss out on all the cool stuff going on in Tulsa, you pretty much have to be willing to be spontaneous and do things last minute. This works for me since most of my life is totally scheduled and I keep my calendar perfectly pretty haphazard and chaotic anyway.    I mean, the life of a doula means being ready to drop everything at any moment to be with a woman in labor. There are plenty of times I look ahead at the calendar and see awesome activities at the library or museum, but then am unable to go because of client emergencies, or simply because the only time I can meet with my clients is on weekends or evenings.    So, I adapt. Like I did a couple of weeks ago when I found out...

MmmHanson...I mean Bop...I mean Hop


MmmHanson...I mean Bop...I mean Hop

Mmmmmm Hanson. Okay, okay, yes, I'm married. Yes, I'm happily married. No, I don't really have actual crushes on any Hanson boys...okay, they're men now, but c'mon. I KNOW I'm not the only one who still gets chills and a little giddy when I hear MmmBop on the radio!    My six year old obviously does not. He said he wanted to come to the Hop Jam with me on Sunday and this is what he did in the car. Granted, we were not actually listening to MmmBop. SURELY he couldn't have slept through THAT!     This past weekend turned out being totally crazy and we missed out on Mayfest, Blue Dome Arts Festival AND Spring in the Square, all fantastic events I totally wanted to go to and blog about! However,...
