You know what really sucks in life? Having a free pass to something that you never get to use. When I find an expired coupon in my wallet, its like a little part of me dies. Recently I discovered an expired coupon for a free Lime-Flavored Krispy Kreme donut and I was all How could I have let this happen?? Never mind the two rather important facts that 1. I don't like lemon and 2.Krispy Kreme donuts are determined enemies in my quest to not become a blimp. For some reason these facts did not matter to me when faced with the unspeakable horror of an UNUSED FREEBIE.
This month, we were given a free pass to the Grand Rapids Children's Museum just for the month of May. Of course being the brilliant, on-top-of-it-all mom that I am, I completely forgot about our free pass until May 30th. Enter panic mode. Counting knuckles. Reciting 30 days has September...
Phew! Thanks to Julius Caesar (who invented our bizarre calendar) I've been given a second chance on life. May 31st! Children's Museum, here we come!
I had taken Luke here two times in his life. Honestly, with a toddler, the Children's Museum is about as exciting as being at home, except with less privacy and a lot more germs.
To a 3-year-old, however, this place is like a little paradise. Especially their new Construction Zone. Luke was in little boy heaven.
We also discovered a baby area which Judah totally owned.
We couldn't have asked for a better morning. The boys were happy and this mama was happy to take them there for FREE!
