I don’t know if I put this in my head, but I don’t think our Waverly Maye is a homebody type of girl. If my hunch is correct, she certainly would have gotten that trait from me. I get “cabin fever” if I’m home for more than a few hours in a row. I have to get out, and most likely that “out” equates to browsing the aisles at Target, TJ Maxx, or the mall. If I’m honest, we (me & my mini-me), can be found at ones of those forementioned most days of the week. And as a result, my bank account may have seen better days.
So in an effort to start 2013 with a better financial philosophy without requiring Waverly & I to stay homebound until the on set of Spring … I had to come up with a plan. I (of course) turned to Google to research “activities for moms & babies” in our area. And after making some calls and inquiries, Waverly & I were signed up to try classes at two different little gyms.
We (both of us) were super excited.
Our first class was at a Gymboree gym. It was thirty-minutes long and jam-packed full of singing, dancing, and climbing. Waverly only had one minor meltdown and other than that, was happy as could be. I considered it a success.

The second free-trial class was at Little Gym. Although Waverly was by far the youngest in her class, she was a stellar student (if I do say so myself.) We had the best time.
However, I must point out that there were several different occasions that I was in disbelief that I was singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider while marching in a circle with other moms I had never met. And really enjoying it. Didn’t see that one coming a couple of years ago when I was on the dance floor at my local bar.
