Hi GainesvilleMoms,

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Are you looking for something to do this weekend? Paynes Prairie is hosting a family-friendly Stargazing event THIS Saturday! Check out the forum for more details!

A fellow mom also posted details about an upcoming registration day for anyone interested in enrolling their children in softball.

And if you're looking to help support the March of Dimes, you'll want to attend the family team kick-off event at Sun Country on Feb. 3! There will be food and events for the kiddos! There is also an upcoming consignment sale to support March for Babies where you can sell your baby/kid items, raise money for a great cause and pocket some of the profits! Be sure to check out the details!

Do you ever worry that your children are getting too many sweets in the classroom? Apparently administrators had cause for concern and have decided to try to cut back on treats for students. Do you have a problem with sweet rewards in the classroom? Are they OK in moderation?

Moms are also giving their opinions on a very tragic story. An 8-year-old died of a highly treatable cancer because he was denied medical care. His parents say they didn't have the funds to take the boy to the doctor. Do you think the parents are to blame? Do they deserve to go to jail?

Another sad story hit the news over the weekend. A large cruise ship capsized, killing some passengers. Have you ever taken a cruise? Did you ever worry about something so tragic happening, or did you always feel safe?

Have a great weekend! Talk to you on the forum!
