Hmmmm....let's see: Wine, food, shopping (local artists!) and great conversation. Just another Tuesday night. Not. But I'll be livin' it Tuesday night when I swank down to our annual Parents' Night out!
It's the crown jewel of our Pathways lecture series and every 'Mapper's secret fave. Dust off the "going out" clothes (the yoga pants without holes?), get a sitter, grab a girlfriend and scoot on down to Seattle Children's Theatre for a little adult interaction and deep thinkin'. We've assembled a panel that features a former presidential speech writer, several noted parenting-book authors and kid experts, and our own glamorous Linda Morgan, she of the award-winning "Getting School Ready" column and soon-to-be-released book. Moderated by super-fox KING-TV anchor Carolyn Douglas.
This stellar cast will discuss the pros and cons of "slow parenting" - cutting back on stuff so you don't go broke or insane. What can you trim without depriving your kids; turning Baby Einstein into Baby Huey? Will lack of Mandarin lessons turn them into gas-station attendants?
Last year, the swag bags alone were worth the cost of admission. You'll get one tomorrow night. Plus that yummy "O" wine. See you there, 6pm, Tuesday, March 24.
