This Weekend in Hyde Park

Sorry for the space between posts, folks. It's been a chaotic few weeks in our household. If you'll remember, we fired our nanny and we've been cobbling together childcare for the past month and a half (it takes a village!). The good news is we've come to a fork in the road. The better news is we've taken the road that lets me (ME!!) be the one to take care of S during the day. It's a dream come true. And, to make the deal even sweeter, it's our first avec-bebe Christmas, and we are taking FULL advantage of all Hyde Park has to offer. Here's what's happening this weekend:

And a bonus event!
Cheap CPR Class!
Monday at 7 pm
This Monday marks the inaugural event of the Neighborhood Parents Network's south side programming. This is an AWESOME way to get involved with a number of the parent support networks in Hyde Park. It's also a great way to dust off your CPR skills (adult and child!), and to do it at a fraction of the price you'll pay elsewhere.

See you around, Hyde Park!
