In a effort to allow baby girl to mix and mingle with other little people and for myself to fellowship with other mama’s we began exploring the world of baby gym’s.
Not sure what I was expecting besides my princess LOVING it!!!!!!
First stop was our nearby “Little Gym” I had heard personal accounts of the birthday parties held there and decided we should check out the fun besides the first session is FREE so no biggie……lets just cut to the chase……..she HATED it! My happy joyful bundle that never cries turned into a tear monster! She didn’t want to be touched or participate. She even cried when I went to change her in the restroom. I was so worried (was the nice couple that owned the place really giving off bad vibes that only my baby could sense…YES my mind was wandering there because I was so surprised by her reaction) . I accounted her fussiness to nap interruption because as soon as the class ended and we prepared to leave my sweet baby was back again.
I decided I would give it a few months and perhaps with maturity she may appreciate this playgroup better. Well “Little Gym” was offering a playtime and movie event that I thought would be pretty cool and you know what it was. No crying, some what inquisitive but she wasn’t ready to dive right into all of the exercises just yet.
Still not convinced this was the place for my girl we decided to head over to the neighboring “My Gym” this gym seemed to have much more variety seeing as though they offered a music class which had major appeal with me. Again the first session is Free so we gave it a go. *Mama holds breathe* Babygirl LOVED it! Yippie I was stoked! “My Gym” offers a few different class selections, they have much more equipment and things to engage the children. The parents and teachers are pretty awesome as well. I definitely recommend this place. Liv has been a member since I saw that twinkle in her eye 🙂
What other playgroups are you guys apart of?
