The big boys had so much fun, which we expected. I wasn't sure what Sammy would really be up to-- at home he plays on his own some but most of the time he takes a lot of my intervention. If I'm cooking dinner, he doesn't play at all but hangs on my knee and cries. But at the jumpy place they had a little room of playhouses, play kitchens, little chairs and tables, toy dishes, etc. He could not have been any better entertained. He stumbled from one thing to the next, crawled up in a seat, back under a table, discovered a toy ladle, visited the train table, then did it all again - for hours. He required almost no intervention from me and was totally happy. I had relaxed conversation with my girlfriend on a pleasant couch in the air-conditioning. Then, when we got home, both boys took huge naps (and the next afternoon Sammy took another huge nap that I'm convinced was related). I had dinner at the ready and waiting point with no crying from anyone. I don't think I've been that relaxed on a weekday since we added a second kid to this household!
Would it be weird to go every day??
