Roddy Turns 2!

On July 23, 2011, we welcomed our fourtGymboree Play & Music has been fostering creativity and confidence in children ages 0-5 for over 30 years. h child a few months after Roddy, our youngest turned 2 years old. It has been a bittersweet challenge getting a growing toddler to adjust to a new sibling, when he enjoyed being the youngest for so long. Now, screaming and kicking tantrums flare whenever I get near, hold, or feed the baby. Coincidence? Honestly, I feel guilty Roddy feels displaced in his home. But, I felt even worse knowing I could not provide the attention a 2 year old so well deserves (on good behavior of course!). One day, I read a post on Facebook raving about Gymboree Play and Music from a mom friend. Only then did I have an AHA moment! Never have I signed up for anything faster in my life. The best $85 I have ever spent! Roddy absolutely loves Gymboree Play & Learn 5 and always has a blast singing, dancing, jumping, & using his imagination. As a mom, nothing is more enjoyable than seeing my son happy and providing him a healthy outlet. Twice a week, Roddy and I spend "Roddy Time" together for 45-minutes each at Gymboree's toddler play on Saturdays in Kaimuki & free play again on Sundays in Aiea. I try to mix it up and he loves both. Now, (almost) all the tantrums have subsided because Roddy looks forward to getting my scheduled and undivided attention. We also use Gymboree as a reward for good behavior too, which worked wonders! Thank you friends at Gymboree!
