I thought $10 a kid was expensive, particularly since I have three and that more than tops our daily Fun Budget. Hear me Fellow Parents: it is worth it! If, however, you are Catholic or from California (like me), you will need to take a deep breath and let go of your ingrained guilt. I spent four hours on my phone, kindle and computer today while my three girls happily romped around with a great range of ages. At one point I turned to my neighbor and said “I’m not sure I have seen my children in an hour.” I did repeatedly imagine all the things that I should have worried about and realized that the kids were just fine. The space is enclosed, they check to make sure that kids are leaving with the same adult they came in with, its very compact and the only threat is from slide burns that seem to afflict everyone.
The best part of course, is that they leave lots of room for parents to sit in comfy chairs so your kids can find you to address said burn, complain about a new playmate or ask to feed the giant Koi fish in the pond. The chairs are conveniently set up right at the entrance to the play space, so you can be reassured that you are in control of the whole situation. As if this were not enough, just as your kids act a bit bored, they have an Art area. Drained little monkeys can flit in or out of the area to paint on the walls or do “free” art projects. I looked around at all the other parents who were happily engrossed in their own lazy and selfish endeavors, which helped me to realize that I don’t live in CA anymore and I can enjoy these simple pleasures!
