-- I like quality playtime with my kiddos as much as the next mama, but
I am not afraid to admit that sometimes I need a little break.
by break, I don't mean a leisurely nap or anything like that. Sometimes
I need a break from my kids so that I can attend to all of the other
pressing issues in my life -- like paying bills, finishing up work
assignments, actually having an adult conversation with a friend, or
getting through the myriad of items on my to-do list.
Sometimes Mommy needs a minute of alone time (preferably with a hot beverage and something sweet to go with it).
Luckily for me, the newly-opened Little Beans Cafe
can help with this kind of predicament. In addition to being a fabulous
indoor play space and cafe destination for city families, Little Beans
Cafe has a few really unique offerings for parents -- including supervised play and several other "mom-centric" offerings such as manicures and yoga classes.
play is basically on-site entertainment and fun for your kiddo while
you return that phone call or meet your deadline in the adjacent cafe
space. Your little ones will be placed in age -appropriate groups with a
trained staff member who will keep them entertained with various
activities and projects while you do what you need to do (while
remaining on site). Parents must sign up in advance to reserve their
space. Supervised play costs $20 for 1 and a half hours (admission to
play space included).
Another great mama-only option is the Mommy Time Yoga class
offered several times a week. Be sure to check back and see what other
mama-offerings are added to the calendar in the coming weeks (I've heard
rumors about manicures and classes on how to make your own baby food!).
the spirit of celebrating quality mommy time, Little Beans Cafe is
giving away one free play date package -- a play date for a group of up
to 10 people. This would be a fabulous chance to get together with some
of the mamas in your life that you never get to really sit and talk to.
Let the kids explore the custom Little Beans village while you sip
coffee and catch up.
Head on over to A Hen and Two (now Three) Chicks
for all of the details on how you can enter to win (and hopefully end
up treating your mama friends to an awesome, free play date!)
is the final giveaway of the week. If you haven't done so already, be
sure to enter to win the other amazing prizes listed below (but hurry,
because time is running out!). All entries must be received my midnight
CST on Friday, January 28th.
