I never imagined life with four kids. I thought two would be it. It is so apparent in their age range. The oldest Tyler is 18 and graduates next month, Damien just celebrated his 16th birthday yesterday, Duke is 9 and Omar is three. I wish I was young enough to pop out one more baby. Life is crazy like that. I am without question their devoted and doting mama. I give them space to be independent but just enough to step in if I have to. I pick and choose fights (but I’m far from a sucker) cause above anything, their happiness is my happiness. You know what happiness is to a toddler? Pretend City. A little town of fun things to do! My favorite: The no cellphone policy. Their favorite: Everything. Seriously. We had to carry Omar out crying. But he slept on the way home so it was all good. We were at Pretend City Children’s Museum for a good 4 hours and still had things to do. We’ll definitely be back.

Listen to me when I say this. Duke did not want to take off his Ralphs uniform. He actually wanted to leave with the shirt on. Purposeful play, hands-on learning experiences, role playing and educational programming is awesome. We are all about building better brains through fun, whole body learning experiences that empowers our children to connect with us and expand their world.
Thank you to Pretend City for inviting us for a day of play on Omar’s 3rd birthday!
