This is a post for 31 Days about making it as a mom. Check out the intro post if this is your first time here!
Something I struggle with as a mom is taking time to do fun things with my kids. Anyone else? Getting memberships to fun places helps me overcome this!
Our city has a wonderful children's museum and zoo. When we have memberships to these places, I feel compelled to "get our money's worth" and make sure we go at least several times during the year. Our kids love both of these places and don't seem to get tired of going.
Having a membership also takes the pressure off me to stay as long as possible and see all the things during each visit. It's fine to run in for an hour and leave at the first sign of cranky kids because we can always come back another day!
I think memberships can be great gifts, as well, because don't we all have enough stuff? Perhaps I'll casually mention that our zoo membership is currently lapsed when people start asking what the kids want for Christmas...
Do you have any memberships to fun places? Do they help you have more fun with your kids? Let me know in the comments below or on Facebook!
