Last Sunday, we had David's brother's kids for the day. Yup... marriage automatically gave me a niece and nephew :)
Thank goodness it wasn't a bad hazy day.... so we took them to the pool....
My verdict... Very BORING museum lah. It was not even the least bit interactive. It was like 4 floors of cabinets with toys glassed in. Hardly any were from my childhood era (mine was the fabulous era of Mask, Smurfs, He-Man, My Little Pony, Cabbage Patch Kids, Ninja Turtles and even Polly Pocket.... oh my Polly Pocket was awesome). They were mostly from David's time and earlier... so he does remember some of those toys, it was quite interesting for him. As for the kids, I didn't feel they were that engaged. I think they would have preferred going through the aisles at Toys'R'us.
Afterwards, the kids had some dessert, and then we headed back home.
So how was it? Well, the kids are 6 and 9.... so they were pretty easy on us, very well behaved angels (not wailing toddlers). It was tiring though.. like you have to keep kids entertained the whole time and when we're out I've always got my eyes on them. Very exhausting to be on high alert. Kudos to the mothers and fathers out there who do this job 24-7.
I suppose if they're your own babies/kids... you get into a certain rhythm and get used to having them around (obviously) so it's less draining than never having kids before and suddenly having them for the day.
Hopefully we'll be parents for real one day.... *alarmed*. How has parenthood been like for you? Please share :)
