At some point every mother has to panic just a little.
For Jennifer Lopez it was when her 5-year-old old son Max was bleeding under his chin and needed stitches, the latest milestone in motherhood for the Dance Again singer.
"I hear that all little boys have a scar on their chin," she told PEOPLE of the recent mishap. "Of course, I was freaking out, but he was fine. He said it tickled."
With her son, who she calls "The Boss," recovering and spending the weekend with Lopez's ex, Marc Anthony, Lopez and beau Casper Smart headed to Las Vegas for the grand opening of mega club Hakkasan inside the MGM Grand.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, love is truly in the air.
Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Casper Smart shared a romantic dinner on Friday night at Cecconi's in West Hollywood.
Although the couple had some "security-looking" personnel with them, they still managed to "canoodle at the table," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Wearing a dress and sequined jacket, Lopez looked "stunning," while Smart kept things casual in slacks and a top.
"They were sweet together and Jennifer was laughing all night long," the source adds.
While there were no huge public displays of affection, the couple sat on the same side of the table and stayed close throughout their meal.

Although boyfriend Casper Smart didn't join the singer, she dined with a group of close friends – including her manager Benny Medina.
"She was in a great mood enjoying a night out on the town, " an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Lopez was discussing "how she just finished her world tour while shooting a movie at the same time," the source adds.
The table shared every dish that was brought out to them. The group especially loved the peanut butter souffle, which they were overheard obsessing about.

Jennifer Lopez has many things: perma-radiance, Pucci dresses, lots and lots of Louboutins and a $250 million empire. But she's also a 43-year-old single mom trying to learn from her mistakes.
"I'm not a young girl anymore who can throw caution to the wind," says the mega-star, who is settled into a sofa, picking at a small bowl of sweet potato and corn mash after a daylong PEOPLE photo shoot.
By her side is Casper Smart, 25, her live-in boyfriend. But while the choreographer – whom she calls by his given name, Beau – makes Lopez very happy, she's quick to point out that after her split from Marc Anthony, the father of her 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme, she's not rushing things.

They say if you've got it, flaunt it – and Jennifer Lopez did just that.
The mother of twins exposed her enviable abs while out and about in London on Monday with boyfriend Casper Smart.
Clad in a tight-fitting cropped black top with black pants and a long, gray coat, the physically fit star, 43, strolled alongside her man, who was also dressed in a similar color scheme.
Lopez worked hard with trainer Tracy Anderson on a custom routine that targeted the area from the singer's abs to her hips.

Lopez, 43, already faced engagement rumors in March and June, at least one time because she also had a ring on that finger. So is she really headed down the aisle now?
One source tells PEOPLE she's "not even close," adding that the bling is nothing more "than a pretty ring."
