It’s hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner! This year has just flown by. If you are like me, there is a never ending list of things to do. And now with the holidays, that list just got even longer. I just have to remind myself that I am one person and can only do so much. That everything might not be perfect and go according to the plan, but it’s okay. Which is why I am trying my best to focus on what’s the most important to me. I am trying to be present in the moment, make memories and create some of my own traditions. Your to-do list is never gonna end, so step back, take a breath and go enjoy some time with your family.
Kidsville at the Parthenon: Saturday, Dec. 14 | 11-11:45 a.m.
You can find free fun almost every Saturday at the Parthenon thanks to our friends at Kidsville! They always have fun activities including storytelling, educational activities, music and more! This Saturday your little ones can explore the basics of photography and make a pretend camera from recycled materials. Plus, you get to visit the Parthenon for FREE! If you haven’t seen Athena in person, that alone is worth checking out!

Little Art House at The Get Along: Dec. 13, 20, 21
First off, if you haven’t been to The Get Along in East Nashville you are missing out. It’s located right next to Sky Blue Café. (Also one of our faves! Their stuffed pancakes are out of this world.) The Get Along is the cutest little shop with clothes, toys, books and more. A great place for holiday shopping!
They host a ton of different classes throughout the month including Creative Play with Little Art House. Smith and I went last week to check it out and it’s perfect. There are four stations set up and the kids can play for as long as they would like at each one. There was a watercolor table, a craft station and two sensory stations.
