Five Things for Today: May 5, 2020

Mezcal drinks during pre-coronatimes in Mexico

1. How about a story time that’s out of this world — literally? Kids can enjoy Story Time from Space as astronauts read children’s books from the International Space Station.

2. Annmarie Sculpture Garden, the wonderful arts center in Calvert County, has an online hub for creative inspiration while the grounds and exhibits are closed. AMG@Home has ideas for art projects, nature activities, photo tours of the garden and galleries, virtual events, and more.

3. The Wharf’s annual Running of the Chihuahuas can’t happen at the riverfront location this year, so they’re hosting the event online. Join the virtual Cinco de Mayo celebration they present their favorite pups from Runnings past. Check out all the cute Chihuahuas and order a fiesta from one of your favorite Wharf restaurants for take out and delivery. You can also enter a giveaway for a chance to win a Pacifico prize pack. Ole!

4. How convenient that Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday.

5. Another very important read for today.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. . I don’t know that the words “thank you” quite cover the love and gratitude I feel having received your blog over the years. Our daughter, now 12, was around 3 when I first signed up to receive Kid-Friendly. I remember sharing your blog in my Room Parent newsletters, sharing it with any friend who had children asking, “Hey, do you get Kid-Friendly?” Your blog is The Torah, The Bible, The Koran of kid/family activities in the DMV.
    I’ve received every single one. I remember being so busy certain weeks that I would save your e-mails in a folder “to read later” not feeling like I was the super mom that week, but letting go of that years later, it is one of the few newsletters that i still subscribe to over the years. With so much real estate taken over in our e-mail by clutter, I am so grateful for your site.

    We had a son, too, now 6. Both of our kids and really our entire family’s years have been filled with experiences that we found out about through your tremendous knowledge, experiences, resources, and time. I know that is true for hundreds, thousands of families. The exponential reach of the good that you have shared is something I hope you can take a moment to appreciate. You should know, YOU DID THAT, YOU MADE FAMILIES LIVES MUCH RICHER, HAPPIER AND FILLED WITH JOY.

    Our family plays the “the grateful game.” We each try to share three things we are grateful for each day. We don’t have a perfect track record, but I realized that while I am encouraging them to reach out to thank those who we often take for granted, I didn’t want to be remiss in not thanking you.

    With love and gratitude,
    The Jin Family
    Erica, Jun, Olivia (12), and Ian (6)

      So, I’m reading this and Owen asks, “Mom, why are you crying?”

      Maybe I’m extra emotional because i’ts what feels like day 867 of quarantine, but this got my tears flowing. Thank you SO much. It make me happy to hear my blog has made other people happy… and this may just be the best comment anyone has ever left. 😊❤️
