Happy Tuesday and what a lovely day it is! After a busy weekend of gallivanting all about the city with our little ball of energy, yours truly was one fatigued mamma. Thank goodness for a relatively quiet Monday so that I can pass out early. Nothing like refueling your energy tank to feel ready to take on the world once again!!
These photos were taken from our morning excursion to the American Museum of Natural History over the weekend. We just recently became members (thanks to Gilt City and an additional promo we were able to take advantage of!), so it was high time to check out the dinosaurs. To quote Susan Weiss-Voskidis, executive editor of Manhattan Family, "we are enormously fortunate to have so much intelligent stimulation around us and we owe it to our children to participate with them in the myriad of possibilities that will further enhance their education and well-being."
This above-quote largely captures how I feel about all that New York City has to offer, and beyond. Sure, sometimes it can get quite tiring (not to mention expensive). Case in point, we probably spent more time in taxis than we did at the museum (an unfortunate clash of mid-day nap schedules). Nevertheless, in spite of the above, I've never ventured on an excursion with the Nuke Baby that I regretted.
At the end of the day, experiences and memories trump everything else in my book, as they serve to enrich and relate. It’s a juggling act, as a "working parent and working as a parent" (another quote of Susan's), but the rewards are well worth it!
