Grand Rapids Children's Museum/Diagnosis: Fun!
Even though the barber shop has been open for 6 months now, we're still adjusting to our new schedule which begins later and ends later. One of the harder parts has been that Chris getting out so late means he can't participate in as much as he would have been able to before, but I'm getting better at planning and organizing morning activities. Like this one!
The Grand Rapids Children's Museum is one of Ana's favorite places EVER. We could spend an entire day in there if they had coffee. So when we realized they opened early enough Chris could spend an hour with us there, it was game on yesterday! I was just expecting the usual awesome stations they had, Ana's favorite being the grocery store and play cafe, but when we hit the second floor, we were so pumped.
Ana talks about how she's going to be an animal doctor and baby doctor CONSTANTLY o when we saw the Diagnosis: Fun! exhibit, we were blown away. The different centers they had were so incredibly realistic, which is one thing Ana get's frustrated with when it comes to the doctor set toys is they're so toy-like. So when she got to shove Chris through a tiny tube and take his photo and use a working stethoscope, she never wanted to leave.
She has since requested a legit doctor kit "like the museum has, not the baby stuff" and spreading the word that this is such an amazing exhibit for a child who is so interested in becoming a doctor or nurse! I'm so stoked that Chris got to participate too. That way I wasn't taking the brunt of the bandaging and proding haha!
