We recently moved back to NJ from the Poconos. In the Poconos I had my son in numerous activities. We did a mommy and me music class, library lapsit, and mommy and me tumbling. Over the summer we moved and then had my second child in August. I knew that I wanted to get my son back in some activities for the fall. He had become so restless being in the house all the time.
Two weeks ago I found the same music program he was in here in NJ. It was not a positive experience. He was all over the place. I guess because it was a new place that he was not used to. Then to top it off I hear a mother talking about my son after class to another mother. I was so upset. She did not know my son or our situation. He had been in music class with the same teacher from 2 months old to this past June. So of course he needs time to adjust to a new class and new teacher. Not to mention we moved and he became a big brother all in the month of August. I just could not believe that this woman was speaking about my son.
I decided to try and find something else where he would be able to move around and not be required to sit for 45 minutes. My neighbor told me about a toddler gym in the area where she took her son when he was around my son’s age. So we went on Tuesday and had a great time. It is impeccably kept and so much to do. Class is once a week for an hour The children can roam and do whatever activity they choose and come together for circle time twice during the hour that they are there. In the gym were so many things to do, Aaron had a ball!!!! So we signed up and it is money well spent!!
