I’m kidnapping my godson and his sister for a day over Christmas break and taking them to the movies. Well, actually, first I’m taking them to drop off the Made by Hand items to the domestic violence shelter, then taking them to lunch, and then going to the movies. Maybe there will be ice cream or something in there because I plan to spoil them rotten during the day!
I’m really looking forward to this excursion but am a little nervous. I’ve never taken kids on the town by myself before. What if someone runs by and snatches the 6-year-old from under my nose? What if I need to go to the bathroom? What if they start crying? What if they get sucked into the escalator?
Sheesh. I’m going to drive myself nuts before this even happens. How do you parents handle this EVERY DAY?
