    The time to start thinking about preschools for our little ones can creep up so fast! In the blink of an eye, our babies turn into toddlers, and then school days are right around the corner. Whether you are just starting the process, already looking at schools, or it’s not quite on your radar yet, the PMC can help. 

    Here in Petaluma, we’re lucky to have too many good schools to choose from. This can make the search overwhelming. A great place to start is with the preschool guide located here: https://petalumamothersclub.org/Guides (you must be logged in to access from the Members Only tab). 

    The PMC also hosts an annual drop-in Preschool Night, where you can gather more information and meet representatives from many of the schools. Watch your email, facebook, playgroup, and this here blog for more details as we schedule that event in early 2019!

    Good luck to all!

    Get ready for Halloween (never too early!) with this fun craft - submitted by Stephanie Walsh.

    Weave a Spider Web


    Paper plate (the sturdier the better)

    Black yarn or string

    Plastic spiders


    Hot glue (optional for spider placement)


    Cut out the center of the paper plate (adults/ older kiddos) and then cut small notches along the outer rim of your plate. I ended up making 16. These don't have to be exact, just spaced out enough to give your web room to grow.

    ● Tie a knot in your yarn and coming from the back place it in a notch. Now wrap the yarn around the plate front to back, moving randomly from notch to notch. Older kids will be pretty independent, but it will help if you sit with your tiny crafters to help.

    ● When your web is finished leave a long tail to tie your spider to. If you want to add other spiders feel free.

    With a new school year in full swing, the change of season approaching, and this funky Sonoma County weather, these enchiladas make the perfect dinner. 

    Not a fan of cooking at dinner time, when the kids are grumpy and needy? Not enough time after work to do the prep? Make them ahead of time! These can sit, ready to bake, for a full day in the refrigerator. Or make a double batch and freeze for later.

    The recipe can easily be customized to your family’s tastes and needs. All of the seasonings are optional and amounts can be adjusted. The cheese can be left out to make these dairy free. Any tortillas will work. Enjoy!



    Filling: 2 cups diced sweet potatoes

              1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

              1 can diced green chiles (optional)

              2 T crushed garlic

              2 T chopped cilantro

             ½ t each: cumin, chili powder, cayenne

              juice from 1 lime

    For assembly: crumbled queso fresco

                         shredded jack cheese

                         12 corn tortillas

    • Lightly boil sweet potatoes in water until barely soft; drain
    • Mix all filling ingredients together
    • To assemble: pour a small amount of sauce in a baking dish; roll each enchilada with a bit of queso fresco and a spoonful of filling; place seam side down in dish
    • Cover enchiladas with sauce and jack cheese
    • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until bubbly
