What did you do on the Friday before Christmas? Many moms (Super, or otherwise) were busy cooking that last batch of cookies, or cleaning before all the company arrived or maybe even wrapping presents. Whatever it was, we all had long to do lists at that point. This SuperMom, however, decided to set aside that list and treat her kids to a fun day out, instead of a day plopped in front of the TV while mommy worked. No sense in creating a situation riff with arguments and inevitable time outs. I choose a different route; I loaded up the car with kids and snacks and made the trek to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix. That’s right. I picked a day when there was an overwhelming amount of work to be done and had fun instead. That’s the sign of a true SuperMom.
I also picked that particular Friday because it was either going to be empty (because everyone was getting ready for the holiday weekend) or crazy busy (because everyone had the same idea as this SuperMom). It was empty! Yea! It is always more fun to explore a new place when there are not crowds of people sharing the experience with you. Maybe that’s just me. It is so less stressful to keep track (and count) of all your kids when there aren’t other people in the way. No lines. No fighting. Just excited little ones, racing from display to display and having a blast!
Now, don’t get me wrong. I am far from perfect. I totally forgot to take pictures. We’ll just have to go back. Soon.
