Emma doesn’t watch very much tv, but I’ve noticed she is interested in Thomas the train more than any other show. She confirmed it today when she pointed to the tv and told me “tee choo choo”. Good thing we have Thomas and Friends On Demand.
Tuesday is the best day for the museum. It’s the one day of the week that they don’t allow any field trips, which means it’s a lot less crowded.
Emma’s new favorite thing to do is drive the bus. It may be my least favorite thing since there are always kids waiting, and Emma doesn’t fully grasp the concept of taking turns. She’ll just push through them all to get to the drivers seat.
We’ve been to the museum a lot and just discovered two new rooms. One of them we had been in a long time ago, but we thought it was boring. It must have been because she was so small. It has a woodchuck den and an ant hill that the kids can climb through.
Adults can too, but it’s a tight squeeze.
My plan for Sunday was to go ice skating at a place recommended by some mommy friends. Sunday was too chilly for anything outdoors, so we decided we would go today instead since it was supposed to be in the 40s.
I wasn’t exactly sure what we were going to do with Emma. The rink also rents ice sleds, but I wasn’t sure Emma would be able to ride on it while we skated. The sled is basically a wooden chair without a seat belt. As soon as they brought it out she was trying to climb on.
Emma loves her sled. If she hears the word sled she runs to the garage yelling “sled shoes sled shoes”. No surprise she loved the ice sled too. I have a feeling we will be going back here for some more skating and sledding.
