Weekend Wrap-up April 7-9

We’ve got a spring symphony, babies, music and babies (we’ve got a special on babies!), and an outdoor adventures for tots. Really, this weekend is all about springing back into it! And we’ve got a way for everyone of any age to do it…
1. Take your pick of animals, from the barnyard or from the lake…Bring a stuffed animal, feel free to wear a costume, and join the Chebucto Symphony Orchestra at the Faith Tabernacle Church for Old Chebucto had a Farm this Saturday for a matinee performance at 2. Admission is by donation.
2. Be your infant’s very own baby whisperer. Have full confidence in your ability to care for your newborn. Get. More. Sleep. If you have a newborn under your care and these sound like goals you wish to achieve, do sign up for this Saturday’s 4th Trimester Postpartum Workshop from 9-4. And yes, you can bring your baby!

3. If you have a baby, how can you tell it is spring time? The urge to take them out of the house on the regular, that’s how!
