An afternoon of shenanigans

Have you ever tried coming up with an afternoon activity with two children, the oldest only 3? It’s not an easy feat. Especially when you are looking at this challenge as the only adult supervisor.

On Thursday my man asked if I could take the kids for a few hours so he could work on what will be our son’s big boy room and we can finally transition our daughter into the nursery. Of course I said yes, but inside I was thinking, how the heck am I going to pull this off?

My kids are good kids, just young. My son is full of energy and curiosity and often wants one of us to join him the first time he does something as a just in case and to see how it’s done. We often hear “Look momma, look daddy!” as he plays and explores. This is awesome when we are both present, but now we are adding in my very clingy 6 month old who also wants to be held constantly!

Thankfully I received a call from a good friend saying she had the afternoon off and wanted to know if I was open to hang out! Told her I was taking the kids out for a bit, but if she wanted to join then she was more than welcome, she said YES!

We took the kids to the Garden State Discovery Museum! It was a blast! As you can see, having my friend with me was a huge help!

We spent a great deal of time in the Dino room, they are my son’s favorite!
