Kid’s preschools and daycares closed for the week. Four conference calls in one day while a baby with a fever is climbing all over your computer. Late nights awake filling out paperwork for a new school year. Three loads of laundry (daily, people).

With a crawling infant and a rambunctious, imaginative four-year old, I wanted to avoid the crowds and chaos, while still letting them just play. And, me oh my, did we find the perfect place!
I met my sister (who has three kids three and under) at Pinwheel Play, a brand-new modern indoor play space geared toward ages 0-6. It was EXACTLY what mama needed that day – with a safe, specialized infant area, playground equipment geared towards toddlers and preschoolers, a netted sports section, TONS of equipment to encourage imaginative play (including toy kitchen, doll houses, costumes and a stage), an art room, a digital game floor, giant magnet board, fairy doors and the ability for this mom to just relax for the first time in a week. We were able to actually engage in adult conversation because hovering or worrying about their safety seemed completely unnecessary here…SO rare with kids these ages. Hallelujah, friends! Halle-freakin-lujah! [Read more…]
