Children’s Museum/ Anxiety

Children’s Museum/ Anxiety

Yesterday, I took Thomas to the Kohl’s Children’s Museum in Glenview. I had planned on writing a whole cutesy blog post about our experience but then I realized that nobody really cares about my “review” of the different Children Museum exhibits (even the people that are supporting this adventure).

Micheal was a real trooper on this one — he is definitely not the kind of guy who is excited about a photo shoot. THANK YOU MICHEAL! We got a couple of good ones but spent most of our time shivering and trying to dodge large crowds of people. Next time we will have gloves and hot chocolates for sure!
