Fun at The Brooklyn’s Children Museum
For the first time ever, I had off on New Year’s Eve! This hasn’t happened in 9 years so I was super excited. The thing was, my husband had to work. So instead of entering into a full blown panic because I have no idea how to keep two kids entertained for an entire day. I’m not crafty and they chance of them driving me absolutely nuts was very, very high.
So I called my blogger friend–turned real life friend and we got the kids together (two of her three are the same ages as my boys) to go to the museum! We hadn’t been to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum in a while so we were excited to see all the changes.
The kids all gravitated towards the water, every display that had water in it, had the boys hands in it too!
We made our way over to the sand where the boys spent a good hour hanging out. They created castles, buried the toys and of course got sand all over themselves! This was a magical kind of sand though, the kind that just slides off clothes and socks. If only real sand were so easy to get rid of!
Next we went over to the building blocks lab where we spent a lot of time building tall buildings, homes and all kinds of random shapes!
We had lunch after all of this where we shared snacks and Scherrie had pity enough to give me half of her sandwich because of course I had prepared food for the kids but didn’t bring not even a bit for myself. #PerfectPlaydatePartner
Finally we made our way to the a section dedicated to Korean culture–it was my favorite part of the day. It was incredible. There were so many food plates that looked so scrumptious it was a shame that they were fake! I learned a lot about K-Pop (just really that it’s completely awesome). And I learned so much about Korean culture like did you know that Koreans don’t label the 4th floor because in their language 4 sounds like death? Whoa.
We had an amazing time and I surprised myself with my parenting skills–you know feeding them and making sure we got home on public transportation safely? Super hard things like that. I think I might be building more confidence in myself when it comes to taking these kids out and surviving. 🙂
