LA CRESCENTA — Temper tantrums may be a part of raising a young child, but that doesn’t mean the angry outbursts can’t be positive experiences for parents, a child psychologist told a group of moms Thursday. About 20 mothers filled a nursery room at St. Luke’s of Mountains Anglican Church to hear Gina Lyons explain that feelings of stress, frustration, depression and anger are normal for mothers overwhelmed with responsibilities, although those negative emotions could be avoided with a different outlook, she said.

Ian Nord gobbled up the chocolate kisses he found inside the plastic eggs he collected Saturday during the annual Spring Fling, hosted by the MOMs Club of Glendale-West at Mayor's Bicentennial Park. The eggs had plenty of other prizes, like clay putty or toy cars, but Ian preferred the chocolates. "How about we save some for dessert tonight?" the 3 ½-year old suggested to his father, Scott.

Karen S. Kim NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Mayor's Bicentennial Park was swarming with wild animals Wednesday morning, or rather, swarming with toddlers dressed as wild animals. A zebra, a tiger, a cow, a bumblebee, a cat and a chick were among the creatures waddling about at the annual Moms Club of Glendale Halloween Party. "It's just an occasional opportunity for the two chapters to get together and have our children try out their costumes a little early," said Cristin Wills, president of the eastern chapter of Moms Club of Glendale.

Surrounded by friends and family, little Merceda Hedge celebrated her first birthday Wednesday with three cakes and lots of cupcakes. It was a typical birthday party with hats, candles and balloons save one variant — a blood drive going on in the next room. The drive was sponsored by the MOMS Club of the Foothills, based in La Crescenta, in honor of Merceda’s mom, Leslie. It was just a little more than a year ago that Leslie Hedge was diagnosed with hairy cell leukemia, a rare cancer of the blood in which bone marrow makes too many B-cells, a type of white blood cell that fights infection.
