Mommy & Daddy Time
Ah yes, “mommy time”, “daddy time” - music to our ears. But let’s face it, it doesn’t happen too often, especially with newborns. What DID we do with all that spare time we had before having children?!
Mommy & Daddy Time includes activities meant for YOU but allow little peanut to tag along without having to worry about tracking down a sitter or annoying other patrons or dare we say it...something for YOU to enjoy sans children.
