March 26 – 27: Weekend Links for Brooklyn Mamas

snowy Brooklyn spring

Happy spring? Yeah, not yet, not so much. The dreaded “wintry mix” made another appearance here this week, shocking my pansies and the magnolia buds with its snide dusting of snow. The white stuff’s gone now, but temps are still chilly and so are moods.

Fuses have been short here in the Coburn-Gillespie household — between truck drama, work, the stressful demands of Pre-K and first grade, and just trying to get everyone out the door with clean teeth and clothes, it’s been a lot. Several little skirmishes broke out this morning alone before we finally all made it out of the house — in a desperate attempt to gain some semblance of control over the morning routine, I stooped to taking away Magnolia’s tail. A low parenting moment if ever I’ve seen one.

Fingers crossed that spirits lift over the weekend!

Here’s some fun sh*t going down:

 Mischief at the New Victory Theater

It’s the last weekend to see “Mischief” at the New Victory Theater — we saw it last weekend and, while I can’t say I loved it as much as “Zoo Zoo” at the Vic, I can say it was a fun, imaginative crowd-pleaser. (We passed some happy time munching on hot pretzels and cruising through the Disney Store like tourists in Times Square before the show.)

Enjoy an open family swim, plus info on summer camp, at the LIU Children’s Academy on Saturday, via A Child Grows in Brooklyn.

Take in the Macy’s Flower Show, which opens on Sunday, via Mommy Poppins.

Get your Muppet fix at The Bell House with a screening of the Muppet Vault Series — this Sunday, they present: Superheroes! Expect classic clips featuring Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter), Superman (Christopher Reeve), Super Grover, and more, via TimeOut New York Kids.

Support a Brooklyn school — and “Beat the Not-Quite-Springtime Blahs!” — with City Stomp at the Winter Concert Series at P.S. 295.

And, if you have some time for yourself, mama — shop now for some cute summer dresses you’ll be happy you have later. I’ve got my eye on this one:

Happy weekend, from us to you!

Here's looking at you, kids!
