It was fun, it was free, and most importantly for me: it was safe!. And by that, I mean that no one was going to bug me to buy toys, or junk food. I was not going to have to fight any of the battles I usually fight when we go anywhere. So safe it was! OR WAS IT?!!!

“But why? Oh come on, mom, just one”


“But mom!!!!”

And replay that same conversation for about an hour.
