Gift Guide and Bucket List of Our Favorite Holiday Things

Tis the season…We put together a list of our favorite places, products and services from stocking stuffers to bucket list events around town. Happy Shopping and Socializing, mamas! 

Gifts for your #1 mom (Yes, YOU!)

Vent Salon also has 2 locations also: Downtown Summerlin and Henderson 3 blowouts per month runs about $55/month. Look Style Society has 2 locations in the Valley – Tivoli Village and Town Square. They offer unlimited blowouts for $99/month and unlimited makeup application for $99/month!

For furry babies: Barking Dogs on Blue Diamond has a great selection of treats and toys to reward your pets after you have them groomed or just do the self wash option. I love the friendly, resourceful staff here and the products are top notch.

I have worn the same lipstick for probably the entire time I’ve lived in Las Vegas (since 2003!) It’s called Stay Currant and it’s a Revlon Colorstay lip stain. I know, the drug store under $10 choice for the win! I’ve tried other brands, other shades, but this is my absolute go to – fancy or casual, day or night, summer or winter. I love this deep red and the fact that it lasts all day & even into some mornings – Lol! Just remember to pick up Neutrogena make up remover too (or the Up & Up Target brand works just as well for half the price) or the fancy Bifacil by Lancôme. They all take off lip stains with minimal effort.

Tervis cups are my new jam. They have been around forever, are super sturdy and incredibly stylish. I love drinking just about everything out of them! There is a Tervis store at PH’s Miracle Mile Shops, but they are also available at Macy’s and Bed, Bath & Beyond(home of the never expiring 20% off coupons!). You can rep your favorite sports teams or choose fun festive designs. With an active, bull-in-a-china-shop toddler you need to be ready for the next foul ball or rogue plane. We also have pets so cleaning up broken glass is too much of a risk! 

Speaking of drinks… The good folks at Total Wine can help you find great wine and spirits to fit any occasion. They carry much, much more than simply wine! There is beer and cordials and hard alcohol as well as unique accessories and paraphernalia to make any wine connoisseur squeal.

Comfort food from Yardbird Southern is a cozy way to spend time connecting with your honey amidst the craziness of the holidays. When it’s cold out, rich foods are the way to go! We need to get our winter coats on – What else will we have to work off in the New Year?! Mandarin Oriental has a festive high tea as well. Start your new tradition today!

Brunch at Craft Kitchen, tea and multiple menu offerings at Truffles N Bacon, Filipino gastropub from Cutting Board & anything from Served LV and now at Americana… These are a handful of favorites around town for taking friends to share a unique experience that will give them something new to try or just make every day meals feel like a special occasion.

I love Hobby Lobby and Michaels for easy DIY kits from ornaments to toys, but the unique finds will be at Cost Plus World Market! Our elf even shops there!

There are 2 indoor playgrounds that we absolutely love (warning, sock zone!): Rockin Jump the trampoline gym is fantastic for the whole family so definitely head over when you have restless visitors in town. Super clean, open warehouse style, a stunt bag, dodge ball courts, a climbing tower, basketball hoops of varying heights, lockers and great music playing. For kids 10 years and younger, go to Kangamoo. You will not be disappointed! You could literally be there all day, they have a walking track, slides, swings, trampolines, a zip line, miles of crawl space, free massage chairs, free coffee, tea and water, a charging station and plenty of wifi.

Sharing experiences and quality time with loved ones is really what the holidays are all about. There are several notable seasonal events and attractions around town. You can never go wrong with Opportunity Village’s Magical Forest where there are so many local sponsors who are annual contributors. The trees are ever changing and can be a constant inspiration for your own home decorations. New to the Valley is Operation North Pole: an interactive experience with our favorite jolly couple! This includes photo opps, visiting the candy shoppe, the toy workshop, and one on one time with Mr. & Mrs. Claus! Make it a point to visit seasonal exhibits at Bellagio, Venetian and now The Park for festive gatherings and holiday decorations. Ice skating is always a fun family night too at Downtown Summerlin, Cosmopolitan and also The Park now too! There are also several homes decked out in Christmas Lights with synchronized music too! Hypnotist Marc Savard’s home on East Robindale is for sure a local favorite. The schedule for House on Robindale can be found on Facebook. If you want to stay in your car, try the Glittering Lights at the Speedway! They have Groupons and deals for bringing canned goods too.

Great shows to see anytime, but going to shows is more festive during the holidays: Terry Fator at Mirage, Jabbawockeez at MGM, and Absinthe at the theater in front of Ceasar’s (<–Absinthe is NOT for suitable for kids! …or anyone easily offended by vulgar language and suggestive content).

Connecting with Family to Family Connections

45239_143737908992087_916307_n-2Hi Moms! Are you looking for something to do with your kids 0-5 years old?! Are you looking for helpful resources? I can’t count how many times I did Google searches, Facebook searches and meetup searches. I was always looking for activities or classes to take my son to. Since he’s an only child, I kept hearing my friends and family say, “You should make some mommy friends so your son can interact with other children.”12992072_1149997478366120_1446597005_n-2

When I first moved out here I didn’t need to worry so much about making friends with other moms. I was constantly traveling back and forth to CA to visit my friends and family so my son was okay. He was getting all kinds of human interaction. Or so I thought! After a while, the constant road trips started taking their toll. I was getting burned out driving constantly: Some family members that I visit moved a little farther away so visiting everyone became harder. Plus, I started to miss staying at my own house here in Nevada. Eventually I decided to give Nevada a chance to grow on me. I started to do my research looking for ideal places to take my son.20151013_112524

I found a lot of awesome places to go but they lacked social interaction for my son. I eventually enrolled him in an indoor play area. We were content for a couple of months, but I just didn’t see my son utilizing any of the equipment or lessons they were teaching. He also started to get bored and do his own thing by himself. I thought to myself, “Wow this an expensive hangout.” I also wasn’t making any friends there; All of the mommies there were either nannies or already split off into groups. None of them were inviting new members so I just kept to myself and played with my son. I decided to end my membership and try Rec Center Classes, which was great and they had a variety of classes available, but after a while the mommy and me classes were scarce.  12986587_1149997868366081_1934384035_o-2

Next, I tried to enroll my son in some independent classes and it never worked out: He had major separation anxiety and teachers didn’t want to waste the limited amount of time comforting him. Back to the computer it was and I did more research to find things to do. I am not sure how I stumbled upon Family to Family Connection, but boy was I happy I did. They have an awesome group of ladies working there who are so helpful and understanding. They are very patient with my son and the classession are great. 

Please visit their website and check out their monthly calendar. You just may find the perfect for you too!

We Love Saturdays at Tivoli Village

Are you looking for a fun way to get your kids to try fresh veggies? Would you like  a fun spot to meet up with other moms at the playground? I have to say that the fresh52 Farmers and Artisan Market at Tivoli Village is outstanding! Since my son and I discovered it we go almost every Saturday (9a-2p)
The streets are filled with tons of local vendors with all kinds of goodies: homemade cookies, jams, butters, oils etc. From local honey, vegan treats, and artisan bread to jewelry, lotion and freshly pressed juices. Peruse street food, kettle corn, vegan tacos, homemade lemonade, not to mention tons and tons of fresh organic fruits and vegetables from small scale farmers. Each week a featured local musician plays for your kiddos to dance.
That’s all great but how to enjoy a farmers market and shopping with a 3 year old? Wear them out! They have a fenced in playground! Inside, the kids can have their faces painted for donations and there is also Kids Art Park featuring a different art project every week to get kids painting, crafting, gluing and hanging out with new friends. They are on a volunteer basis and have great project ideas including seasonal picks such as Father’s Day & Mother’s Day crafts. As a major bonus, Monica is so friendly! For you homeschooling mamas and dads this is the perfect place to meet up for groups or to connect with fellow parents. I have even seen a mommy jogging class. (It’s super inspiring to watch these ladies jog around the square pushing strollers – you should see the kids faces: they love it!)
If you want to sit down and enjoy some homemade crepes, The Crepe is a toddler friendly restaurant. They have an entire play section filled with puppets, art, blocks, trains anything a little boy or girl could want to do and they occasionally have story time. Stop by for a menu and their schedule. They have so many offerings for a kid-friendly meal day or night. The food is amazing! Whether you like sweet or savory – it’s a treat. Everything is made to order fresh and the environment is hip, industrial at the ground floor level of Market LV.
Although my toddler loves to go on the escalator more than the slide at times… Tivoli Village has so many fun things to do at their farmers market on Saturdays. I hope you will bring your little ones out, meet your neighbors and support our local vendors!

Healthy Habits For Picky Eaters

Being a mama of three small children can be a challenge, especially when it comes to eating. I noticed each one of my children goes through different eating phases as far as pickiness goes. I went through dessert negotiations when they were all toddlers. Like if you eat three more bites I’ll give you dessert. Then I realized that I was doing more harm by doing that. Usually this leads to negotiating other things, i.e. my son/daughters say if I do something, what will I get for doing that. For me, I want them to do something because they want to do it, not because they are expecting something in return. So I felt like I had to make a change and hopefully these tips will help your picky eater so they can have more of a diverse palate then just eating chicken tenders, pizza, or mac & cheese.

1. Take them with you when you go shopping for groceries so they can pick out some fruits and vegetables. I like taking my kiddos to the local farmer’s markets because it allows them to take some control of what they want to eat plus they get excited about what new fruit and vegetable they picked out. Another plus is they understand where their local food comes from and they get to know their local farmers and artisans.

2. Involve your kids in the cooking process. It’s so much more fun for them to be a part of cooking, let them be your taste testers. They’ll be proud that they helped out, hence they will more than likely eat the food you put on the table.

3. Educate them during dinner time. I tell them that its important to eat healthy and that they are fortunate to be able to eat different varieties of food. I want them to understand that food is fuel for the body and there are essential vitamins and minerals we need to eat for us to have a healthy body. I also tell them that there a lot of children all over the world that don’t have a choice or sometimes go without a food, it might sound cruel to some mamas but I’m just being real.

4. Be consistent with what you serve, they might eat a bite or two but eventually they’ll eat it. I always serve some sort of greens with our meal. My two older kiddos likes their greens plain but my toddler likes her w/ a little homemade salad dressing (balsamic vinegar and evoo/Avocado oil w/ sea salt).

5. Encourage and praise them when they try something new, especially when they are toddlers. I always clap my hands and tell my toddler I’m proud of her when she tries a different vegetable. It makes her feel so happy and she tends to eat more so she can hear me clap.

Hopefully some of my tips will help you mamas out there because we are in this together and healthy children are a good investment in our future and theirs.

Family to Family Connection Offers Information and Community

Girl Playing With Building Blocks

Girl Playing With Building BlocksRaising young children can be an isolating experience. It is often difficult for families to find credible information about child development and parenting. Also, it can be challenging – particularly in a transient city like Las Vegas – for moms to create strong support networks. Family to Family Connection is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to families with children ages 0-5 years. Their mission statement: “Through parent education and community networking, Family to Family empowers and supports families to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their children.” With a full roster of classes, a resource library, and a lactation educator on staff, new parents have a place to learn about being even better parents. The resource library allows the checkout of books and DVDs featuring subjects such as parenting and child development. Family to Family teaches a full calendar of classes. Most are taught in English, but there are some Spanish language classes each month, too. Topics include music, nutrition, physical activity, crafts, and even infant massage. Check here for the most up-to-date offerings. (Full disclosure – I occasionally lead a class about having a healthy relationship with food.) Family to Family has also teamed up with Nevada Early Intervention Services to offer some classes addressing your child’s development. Beyond the formal programming, one of the biggest strengths of Family to Family Connection is that it provides a space for young families to connect with one another. Friendships develop among the families served. When my boys were babies, Family to Family Connection was a lifesaver! There weren’t many places where I could bring both children and still feel relaxed and comfortable. Family to Family was welcoming. I could actually talk to other moms (yay!) while my children played safely. My new-mom jitters calmed down as I learned from the classes, and I was eternally grateful for a place to escape cabin fever. Each spring, Family to Family Connection presents the fundraiser “Touch a Truck.” As the name indicates, children have the chance to see a large variety of vehicles up close. They get to climb into a fire truck, touch an Army jeep, and even chillax in a limousine (my kids’ favorite – and so quintessential Vegas).

~*GIVEAWAY*~Kindermusik With Miss Dedra

IMG_0572

Are you looking for a great way to socialize your toddler and connect with other moms at the same time? Do you want to see your little one engaged and attentive and LEARNING?! Kindermusik is the answer!!! I have the pleasure of coming to know Miss Dedra – a pure talent in the Kindermusik movement. She is truly gifted in the world of music as well as with kids! She has been teaching piano since the ripe old age of 14 and became a Licensed Kindermusik Educator a mere 3 years later enabling her to open her first music studio in Wisconsin. Talk about accomplished! She obtained a BA in Music with an emphasis in Piano Pedagogy so rest assured, you are in very capable hands! I walked into the studio, unsure of what to expect. I know my son is quite musical, showing interest in all instruments as noise-making is a big hit with most toddlers! J claps when people finish singing or dancing so I know he gets it. He is sweet enough to ask for “more” when I finish a made up lullaby for him while he nurses. I was so excited to see how he fared in our first Kindermusik class. There are normally 5-6 other children attending class with their moms and occasionally siblings are present as well. It is a bit intimidating to walk in not having met anyone beforehand. Lucky for me, I brought a couple of mom friends so it was not as nerve-wracking, but then there is always the fear J may not interact or maybe he is nearing nap time so he will be fussy. Let me tell you, the intimidation was completely in my head as these were the NICEST moms I’ve met in an infant/toddler class ever! I have taken J to countless mommy and me type classes since he was just a few months old and by far, I have never felt more welcomed than when I took him to Kindermusik class. We attended a Wiggle & Grow class (2-3yrs) and a Sing & Play class (0-24 months). The other moms were all very sweet, very supportive and surprisingly encouraging even when J didn’t want to follow along. He was interested as he always is, in other kids and his surroundings, but he was still a little shy. My friend’s daughter (2) was completely enthralled by every activity presented. She took to Kindermusik like a fish to water. It was an utter joy to watch her enjoy class.
 
 
All the kids are enamored with Miss Dedra as she remembers everyone’s name and focuses intently on you with a soothing, kind voice. She starts class by welcoming each child with a personalized movement of their own. It is a sweet and fun way to learn everyone’s name. Varying sounds and tempo are used and even cleaning up has musical accompaniment. There is a lot of dancing and use of studio space. The simple touch and feel of different instruments and unique sounds they create keeps little minds focused. Kids trying out different movements and wiggling about also encourages moms to get moving too! I enjoyed this since I love being silly with my son and expanding his movement repertoire. I want him to know that his little body can do amazing and magical things, so dancing is a great way to do this. Songs we sing are catchy and easy to learn so moms (and dads!) who worry about how sound will be happy to know that if you can sing Happy Birthday, you are in!
Signing up for classes also grants access to Kindermusik@Home for supportive media materials to download at home in between classes! Reinforcing lessons learned and using interactive methods with your little one will help familiarize you both the curriculum. I highly recommend attending classes regularly as this is the best way for your son and/or daughter to be comfortable more quickly and really get the most out of your time with Miss Dedra. Getting to know the other kids, the cadence of the class, the other moms and your teacher only lends to an enjoyable experience for everyone. It really makes a difference when J sees other kids he knows. He remembers other kids and his face lights up when I prepare for our day and ask him if he wants to play with specific friends. Our mission at Las Vegas Moms Blog is to connect moms to each other and I have to say, Kindermusik has my vote for the most welcoming moms on the block! 

Thank you, Miss Dedra for an awesome experience. Thank you for being such a shining light in the music world and for sharing with us such a nice group of moms and their kids. It is so important for our little ones to include sensory play whenever possible and you are making it happen – Bravo!

Who would like to meet Miss Dedra and introduce your little one to a multi-sensory experience through Kindermusik?!
We are giving away an entire month of classes (1 class per week) You really cannot miss this opportunity…
