Perfect Quick Treat for Kids to Make Themselves: Perfect Size for 1

Friday was kindergarten orientation at our elementary school. For incoming kindergarten families, this means a lovely day for soon-to-be kindergarten kids and their folks to come meet the teachers, play games, make friends and get comfy with the school while it is in session. For outgoing kindergartner families, this means no school and a mad dash for child care, telecommuting and keeping the children occupied.

So Friday I worked from home while Alice and her buddy Laina played inside, outside and thoroughly enjoyed their day off. Thankfully they did not “BBC Dad” me during any video conference calls, but they did make two, or twenty-two, requests to “bake something!” Sadly, I did not have the time to go full-on Cupcake Wars with them, but I did supervise while they tried out the new Perfect Size for 1 quick and individual cake treats from Duncan Hines.

Alice and Laina both chose the S’mores Cake flavor, and enjoyed using their new reading skills to sound out the steps and do them on their own. I hung around to help reach things and take photos.

All they needed to make their cakes were mugs, spoons, a measuring spoon and about a minute. They poured their individual pouches into their mugs, added carefully-measured water (although the directions say you can get creative with other liquids), stirred and then we heated.

Voila! In just a minute these cuties had a warm, delicious, freshly-made S’mores Cake and I never had to turn on my oven or watch my kitchen be destroyed. I had a bite of Alice’s and it tasted like a bakery muffin: sweet and decadent, studded with chocolate chips and marshmallows.

I could have polished it off with a cup of coffee but then I was unceremoniously kicked out to “go back to work!”  But not until after receiving hugs for “letting us make something!”

Perfect Size for 1 was the perfect treat for Alice’s playdate, and is a quick and easy way to have a single serving of baked delish when you need a cake fix.

Favorite Weekend Getaway for DC Families: Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay

If you are ready for a waterfront getaway, whether this spring or after school is out for summer, the  A Parent in Silver Spring crew recommends the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina. It is close — less than two hours from the DC area! Located in Cambridge, Maryland on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake and on the idyllic Choptank River, this vacation spot is without the stresses or messes of beach traffic but still provides the sun, the swims, the entertainment and the relaxation every busy family needs.

Full disclosure: We try to do as many getaways as our family schedule and budget can afford and the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay is at the top of our list. After staying for a weekend last summer, we had to head there again during spring break. Our second stay was even better than our first. We purchased two of our three nights at the property, covered all of our meals and other expenses, and received one night’s press review stay. If work and school would have allowed, we would have purchased more time at this drivable paradise locale.

The resort is geared towards families, and all five of us found our stay there to be peaceful and yet every bit as entertaining as those that feature cartoon characters. As soon as you check in you and your kids are presented with a schedule of all of the options for family relaxation and excitement. Each day there are are at least 12 different activities for kids and families to enjoy, most of them at no additional cost.

You will not be bored! can stay at the resort 24-7, soaking it up in the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake’s four waterfront pools: one with a slide, one infinity-style, one kid-friendly hot-tub style small pool that is both inside and outside and one massive indoor/outdoor for all-weather swimming and “dive in” evening kid movies.

There are also golf courses, tennis and beach volleyball courts, mini golf, frisbee golf and a full roster of kids’ “camp” style activities will keep you busy. The six on-site restaurants will keep you fed, from the casual coffee shop and convenience store Bay Country Market, the poolside lunch shack Dock’s Poolside, and of course, the four full-service restaurants, too.

My kids loved the organized activities organized by the life guards and young camp counselor-like staff. The token dive for coins to use for games in the Captain’s Parlor was a daily hit. They also enjoyed beach blanket BINGO, cannon ball contests, and more group activities just for kids.

The line-up of seasonal family fun is always changing. Over spring break the grand ballroom was taken over by five massive boune house inflatables and smaller rooms were devoted to corn hole, Wii and XBox games. The kids played non-stop with friends they made on-site and still were not able to try every activity offered during our three days.

Coming Up at Hyatt Regency Chesapeake

We loved the morning complimentary waterfront yoga classes and nature walks. My big kids joined me for yoga while Chris and Alice took the nature walk, learning all about the nearby nature sanctuary and local wildlife. They spotted wild turkeys, deer, hawks, sea birds and more. Runners will also love the waterfront trails for morning runs, and the fitness center had enough treadmills, ellipticals and bikes for all (all with their own built-in TV), as well as a stocked weight room.

If you are an avid golfer or a boater, you probably already know about the River Marsh Golf Club championship course and the 150-slip River Marsh Marina. We adored the views that both provided, but did use ourselves.

The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay is an A Parent in Silver Spring top pick for families in need of some recharging and vacation vibes without the typical vacation drive. We spend our time and money there, and if you have some to spare of both, we recommend you head there, too!

Let’s #ProtectPE!

This post is in partnership with  Voices for Healthy Kids, a joint initiative of the American Heart Association and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. All opinions expressed are my own.

My three kids eagerly look forward to the days that their middle and elementary school schedules include physical education (P.E.). Both Eve’s fifth grade class and Alice’s kindergarten crew typically have a weekly hour of instruction with their schools’ designated gym teachers, in addition to daily recess and classroom teacher-led P.E. periods. Seventh grader Charlie’s gym period meets three days a week, twice a week for a single period and once a week for a double period.

Charlie has enjoyed learning how to properly lift weights in his middle school gym periods, as well as getting to select team sports units like volleyball and basketball. Eve says that she has most enjoyed climbing the ropes course at her school gym, and like her brother, she is big fan of the court sports during P.E. time.

Free spirit Alice’s favorite moments in P.E. this year in kindergarten have been learning how to jump rope, tumble and her cardiovascular favorite: dancing.

In our home state of Maryland, physical education is mandated for K-8 students, but not every state stresses the importance of P.E. for students. In fact, Only 4% of elementary schools, 8% of middle schools, and 2% of high schools provide daily PE or its equivalent for the entire school year.

Research shows a strong connection between physical education and academic performance, and that children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. I see this connection between exercise and academic focus in my own three kids, who are so much more engaged in their school work when they have time to move their bodies.

According  to Voices for Healthy Kids, the vast majority of our fellow parents agree. Their research shows that 95% of parents with children under the age of 18 think PE should be part of the school curriculum for all students K-12.

The Voices for Healthy Kids initiative aims to foster a national conversation about the need to ensure quality physical education as a part of every child’s education.

Do you know the P.E. requirements in your state?

Are your own children getting enough P.E. at school?

Gifted: Great Film for Tweens, Teens and Parents

What makes a good life for our kids?

This is the question we parents ask ourselves throughout our days, and countlessly over the years.

The new film GIFTED gets right to the heart of the question, exploring the importance of family, education and happiness in a child’s development. 

Tell me if these worries sound familiar…

“Should we encourage our child to apply for that magnet school program, or would she be happier going to her home school with her friends?”

“Is this school giving our kid all he needs? Should we look at other school choices? Should we move?”

“I’m feeling called to homeschool. Will I be enough?”

“Is this area the best place to raise our family? Should we look at jobs in other towns?”

“Is my child happy? Am I doing this right?”

I ask myself a variation on those questions, endlessly. My husband and I ask them together. We are constantly evaluating our three children’s needs, and the essentials come down to making sure that the three elements of  FamilyLearning and Happiness are all in balance.

The role of these elements in raising kids today is explored thoughtfully and with heart in GIFTED. I took my children Charlie (13) and Eve (11) to a pre-screening of the film, along with two fellow mom friends and their tweens and teens.

The premise of GIFTED is extraordinary: Mary (Mckenna Grace) is a first-grade girl who can solve theoretical mathematical equations on the level of an MIT professor. She is a genius, full stop. It’s hereditary. Her mother was on the Nobel track before she died, and thus her uncle Frank (Chris Evans) has raised Mary since she was a baby. He wants Mary to have a happy, well-adjusted life, after seeing the mental anguish his sister suffered as a genius pushed by parents, tutors and universities from the earliest age.

Because the movie premise is not an average household occurrence, the story becomes an allegory for all of us parents and families. Is Frank doing the right thing raising Mary away from the locked tower of academia? Is he giving her the best life possible by sending her to a standard first grade classroom to get to know kids her own age? What constitutes a healthy family? Is the loving neighbor who cares for Mary daily more important to her than a glory-obsessed grandmother?

When viewed from this reflective place, the film is moving and brings us to ponder the essentials. In my opinion, GIFTED is a beautiful poem in which we parents see ourselves in Frank, the father struggling to do the right thing, making mistakes and consumed with insecurity in his parenting choices. Roberta (Octavia Spencer), as Frank’s neighbor and the stand-in mom of Mary, symbolizes the traits of support we seek out in co-parents, friends and family. Mary’s grandmother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) stands for the pressures we face as parents, externally and internally, and the doubts we feel that we are doing enough for our kids.

At least, that was my take. All of us who saw the movie together had a different interpretation of the film and an opinion on what constitutes a life well lived. Our group of parents and kids talked about the film the walk from the theater and during the entire Metro ride home that night. One young friend mused that she would love to go to college early and be a genius. But then we all pointed out to her that she loved serving on the student council, performing in the school plays, and going to birthday parties on the weekends.

The GIFTED filmmakers knew that they were creating an exciting conversation starter for parents and kids, and so they created a family Guide_for_GIFTED. I encourage you to check it out to explore the themes addressed about education, family and what is really important, and use it for talking with your kids after the film.

Definitely take your kids to see GIFTED, or meet your parent friends to watch together.

And remind yourself that you are asking all the right questions.

What some of my favorite parenting writers are saying about GIFTED: 

“If you are a critic of child actors, prepare to be impressed. Mckenna as Mary knocked it out of the park…she was the center of the movie. I forgot I was watching a little actor. I got sucked into her emotion, her cuteness, her heartbreak.” — Jenny Ingram of Jenny On the Spot

“GIFTED is an interesting and beautiful story. It’s different and unique. And in the end, you’ll leave feeling good. I don’t know about you, but in this day and age, at this crazy time in our country’s life, I need happy. I need feel-good. I need entertainment that entertains but doesn’t leave me feeling upset, angry, or drained.” — Amy Mascott, TeachMama

“The movie was great. I both laughed and cried. In the movie Mary Adler has a one-eyed cat named Fred. Later Fred is [SPOILER redacted about the awesome cat]. This was one of my favorite scenes.” [Now you really have to go see the film, or curiosity will kill….] — Delaney Smith, age 12 (daughter of Danielle Smith), Extraordinary Mommy

“If you’re a believer in families of all kinds, check out GIFTED. And don’t forget a tissue!” — ScaryMommy.com

Get tickets to GIFTED, which opens in select theaters Friday, April 7. 

Thank you to Fox Searchlight and Beyond PR Group for inviting my family and friends to a pre-screening of the film.

Mother of All Baby Showers Features Newest Baby Products

If you ever have the chance to attend a Mother of All Baby Showers event, clear your calendar, grab a friend, pawn off your kids and make sure to attend. This event is loads of fun, there are tons of prizes and it is packed with the latest and best items for expectant moms, babies and families with littles.

I have attended several years and always come home loaded with swag and learning after meeting with experts for new and expanding families. Last week’s Mother of All Baby Showers Luxe event in Tysons Corner was no exception. It was a parents night out connecting new and expecting parents (and parenting bloggers, too) with hand-picked pregnancy and parenting brands.

I brought my sister-in-law Mary and her baby daughter Maria came along in the baby carrier (I was one excited aunt!) The highlight of the night included a keynote from Maria Bailey, host of Mom Talk Radio and co-founder of Mother Nurture and founder of Pre-Mama. Maria talked about balancing a growing career when her four children were very young, and how moms and career DO go hand in hand. Her insights on how to make your family your priority while working towards career goals you love – whether through social media careers or creating products fellow moms can really use – were fascinating.

Maria’s new products for expecting and nursing moms are amazing. As someone who was nauseous every single day of my pregnancies, but also anemic, I wish that I had had Premama and Mother Nurture and when I was expecting. Premama is complete prenatal nutrition requirements as required by our doctors, with flavor, that dissolve into water — taking the barf factor out of those prenatal vitamins. No more choking on horse pills, and you can actually get that folic acid and other essential vitamins into your system and to your baby!  Mother Nurture flavored waters help expectant moms stay hydrated with all natural sweeteners and flavors, and Mother Nurture truffles are nutrition-enhanced chocolate treats with good stuff for mom and baby. Although I am not currently pregnant, I am a regular imbiber of these ingenious products for a healthy life.

One find at The Mother of All Baby Showers Luxe that made me want another baby? Bratt Decor. This brand has the most gorgeous nursery furniture and bedding I have ever seen. Check out Bratt Decor’s online offerings, or head to the Bratt Decor Baltimore Closeout Warehouse to snag nursery decor items on deep, crazy-low discount! The warehouse is open to the public 10am-4pm at 5 N Haven Street Baltimore, MD. Call 410-327-4600 for details.

I could not believe the car seats and strollers I saw at the BabiesRUs booth at The Mother of All Baby Showers. They are so much lighter, safer and more high tech than even five years ago when my youngest Alice was born.

Aveda Tysons Corner was also on hand at the event to give all the moms and moms-to-be in attendance some pampering. Hand and shoulder massages, aromatherapy and custom consultations for wellness and beauty made the night feel like a spa. I love that their products are natural, made from pure plants and flowers…perfect for expectant mothers.

Although neither Mary nor I won any of the massively awesome door prizes (car seats! nursery furniture! mega big prizes!) we went home laden with swag and happy from a fabulous night out. You have to come with me to the next Mother of All Baby Showers in the DC area, or look for one coming to a town near you!

Medieval Times Spring Break Savings and Junior Knight Training

The last time we went to Medieval Times’ Baltimore/Washington, DC castle was in 2012. Five years later, we saw that our favorite elements had remained intact, but exciting new features (and special savings for Spring Break 2017) have been added to the medieval tournament show!

New Junior Knight Training Experience at the April 11, 12 and 13th, 2017 5pm Shows 
Your children ages 5-12 can have the chance to train with the Knights of the Realm, free with their child’s admission! At 3:30pm, before the April 11, 12 and 13 5pm shows, the first 80 kids who sign up get the amazing chance to enter the ring with the real knights of the show. Parents watch in the stands as the boys and girls enter the ring and line up behind small wooden swords. There they are addressed by the king himself and then they learn sword moves and courtly procedures from the knights of the show. After their special training, they kneel to be knighted themselves.

Space is limited and training is available on a first come first serve basis for the first 80 kids. This exciting bonus for kids is only happening at the Medieval Times Baltimore/Washington, DC castle!

Save BIG with the Medieval Times Spring Break Deal…up to $22 off per person! 
During March and April, Kids and Student tickets are just $29.95, Adult tickets are $37.95. This deal is valid for every show in March and April 2017. Use Code: SB3729 when booking online.

The Medieval Times Experience 

So you’ve snagged that super spring break deal and you are all set to arrive at 3:30pm sharp if you are interested in the Junior Knight Training on April 11, 12 or 13. What else is in store?

The castle opens 75 minutes prior to the show, and be sure and get there at opening to reap all the fun possible. You will get to see the King, Princess and Knights arrive, heralded by trumpets. After you show your tickets or pick them up at Will Call, you will be assigned a Knight to cheer for and your crown will reflect your knight’s banner colors. Once you have entered the castle, you  can explore the Dungeon (if you dare!), meet the falconer and his bird of prey, explore the exhibits, peruse the medieval swords for sale, get a drink and get into the middle ages spirit.

Before everyone is welcomed into the arena, the crowd gathers to cheer for the Medieval Times special celebration honorees. Birthday party packages are just $7 extra per person, and can include a special knighting by the king!


Then everyone is admitted inside to find their seats for the show. You sit in your knight’s section, and settle in for great food and entertainment. The king and his court arrive with great pageantry and theatrics. The knights ride in on their horses and the cheering begins. Next you will watch the flight of the royal falcon, and then be wowed by a dressage show in which the horses leap and “dance.”

Then the medieval jousting tournament between the six knights begins. They really joust, from atop their real horses, and then they battle in sword combat using real weapons. It is awesome!

All the while, you are chowing down on your four course meal, hands only. You will enjoy soup, bread, roast chicken, potatoes, corn on the cob and cake for dessert. There are vegetarian meals available as well as special accommodations for allergies. You can choose several beverage options, and order a drink at additional cost from the roaming bartender.

Make your spring break super special and get your Medieval Times tickets today.

My family and I received general admission tickets for review and two of my children experienced the Junior Knight training. All opinions are my own.
