I decided to join the Philadelphia Please Touch Museum a couple of weeks ago, since it is such a fun place and my toddler is at the perfect age to enjoy most of the exhibits there. It will be a great place to run around when the weather turns cold this winter. We went there with my friend and her son and the boys had a great time playing. I love how the exhibits can be enjoyed by a variety of ages. My toddler is still a bit frightened by the carousel so we passed on riding it this time. As a member we get 8 rides on it free during our year's membership. Hopefully before the year is up he'll be a bit more adventurous. (His first ride on a carousel at our local mall led to him freaking out and us switching from a horse to a seat and him deciding in the middle of the ride that he was all done.)
(For some reason I cannot upload photos on typepad today--not sure what the issue is.)
I sell the toddlers unneeded items twice a year at a local consignment sale held at an elementary school. The sale is this weekend and consigners got to shop last night before the sale opened to the public. I'm hoping most of my stuff sells...if not I'll end up donating it I suppose. I bought the toddler a small plastic wiggles guitar for $2. He is in love with guitars and did not put it down all day. I'd like to get him a real one for his birthday, but I think a two year old would destroy the strings. I'm considering a ukulele instead, but haven't found one I like yet that isn't a novelty item. At the sale I also picked up a pair of snow boots for $7.50 that look new and some clothes, including a cashmere sweater from Crewcuts. While a toddler wearing cashmere is ridiculous, it was only $4, so if it gets ruined, I won't be too upset.
