Outdoor activities for kids in Glendale?

My son has a ton of energy and I need to get him out of our tiny apartment or he’s going to start bouncing off the walls! Please help me find somewhere outdoors in the Glendale area where he (and I) can let off some steam!

Best places for children's birthday parties in Palmdale?

I’m a Palmdale mom and am planning my daughter’s 4th birthday! Any places in the area you’ve had birthday parties at? I want something fun and easy to invite some of her daycare friends to! Also, any tips on how to do invites nowadays? Do I just send her to daycare with invites for the other kids or do I make a Facebook event?

Best kid-friendly museums in LA?

I’m a West Hollywood mom and I’m wondering how young is too young to take kiddos to museums? I want to avoid another one of those nightmare outings haha. I have a 6 year-old daughter and a 3 year-old son. I’m not worried about my daughter, but my son sometimes has tantrums in public. Are there any good museums to take kids to in LA?

What is the best instrument for a toddler to learn?

My oldest (9) has been learning how to play the piano for a few months now. Naturally, his little sister wants to follow in his footsteps. I just keep wondering if her fingers are too small to play the piano, though. She’s only three! Is three old enough to learn how to play the piano, and if it is, is there a better instrument for her to learn how to play instead?

What age is okay for piercing my daughter's ears?

My mother in law has started asking when we’re going to have our little girl’s ears pierced. I didn’t get mine pierced until I was about 15 or 16, so I was never planning on having her ears done so young. She’s only 5. Obviously there’s nothing wrong with waiting until later, but I’m feeling kind of pressured. Does anyone have strong opinions about having a child’s ears pierced?

Is it appropriate to paint a child's nails?

I give myself a fresh manicure every week or two, and my daughter (5) and son (2) like to sit with me and watch. I’m almost surprised it took them this long, but today my daughter asked me if I could paint her nails, too, and then as soon as she wanted that, so did my son. I told them I’d think about it. How do you moms feel about painting your kiddos’ nails? Am I making too big of a deal about it? Do they allow kids to have their nails painted at preschool?
