the Cuties' favorite museum in Atlanta is by far
the Children's Museum
We typically go every Monday
they do not allow school groups or field trips that day
and, if you get there right when it opens,
you're basically the first and only people in attendance
for at least 20-minutes
that means we get to be the ones to mess everything up first
(which i feel very badly about & initially try to chase after the girls
attempting to put everything back in their proper places
but then i realize its a futile effort once even one more family arrives)
J and I thought long and hard about getting the girls
a train table for Christmas. They love this play area!
*in the end, we got them a great dollhouse--
something the children's museum does not have
another fan/fam favorite is the moon dough
I could play with this myself the entire time
Cutie Cakes decided she wanted to be an antagonist
and smashed/stole/destroyed Cutie Face's "cupcakes"
three times in a row.
resulting in a lovely time-out...
in the middle of the children's museum
nothing a "sorry mommy. sorry cutie face" couldn't fix
or a well-timed snack break for that matter!
all in all, a good diversion from the house
filled with lots of lessons on how to behave & interact in public!
the bonus is,
you're surrounded by families/moms/kids that completely understand
the situation you are currently in
since they are more than likely in the same place as us!
