Amusing and fantastic to me, anyway. And yes, I do my best to keep my kids under control. But I digress. I'm hoping to do a writeup here and there about our adventures in the DC and Alexandria area and how we adapt them to be kid-friendly, and therefore mom-friendly, 'cause if the kids aren't reasonably happy and/or learning something, mama ain't happy. To kick it off I thought I'd bring you some links that I've come across with ideas for what to do with the anklebiters & questionaskers in your life. (I've never liked the term, but Oz is literally an ankle-biter right now, so what are you gonna do?)
From the DCist, this somewhat bratty but helpful nonetheless list: The 8 Best Places to Bring the Kids to in the DC Area - Is it just me, or do no actual parents ever use the term "rugrats"? It's kind of like saying "Cali" instead of California, which I can't recall an actual Californian ever doing. But maybe that's because people always say "I'm going to Cali" and actual Californians, wisely, seem to mostly stay put. More digressions. My final note on this: How about your childless self moves to the suburbs, so when you're driving for an eternity to get home from work, no small human is melting away in sadness wondering what's taking you so long?!
From Kid Friendly DC: The Great Indoors - It's never really much of an issue deciding where to take kids on a nice day. It's the rainy ones that get tricky. Looking forward to checking these out. (And, on this possibly stormy day, we're headed back to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History for the second time in a week!) This website will apparently be a good resource, but I haven't browsed yet.
