Yesterday we had one of those Super Kid Sundays—you know, the kind when you’ve planned approximately a gazillion activities centered around your little darlings. First we made the kids pancakes for breakfast…with M&M’s. Then we played miniature golf at Essex Golf in Roseland, a real gem of a place. It’s clean, pretty and not crazy-crowded; we were there at 11:30 a.m., we had the course to ourselves. There’s also a nice-size golfing range for adults sans kids, and a good pizza place, which is where we had lunch, followed by ice-cream.
Then friends came over with their three kids. Then we took them to Chuck E. Beyond Cheesy and let them all play games for an hour. Then the kids had pizza for dinner, too. With ice-cream. Then we finished the day at the park.
Our Sundays tend to fall into two categories: Plan a bunch of fun activities totally centered around the kids, or just “relax” at home with the kids. “Relax” is typically code for veg out on the couch and watch a lot of TV. The kind of Sundays our family has is largely contigent on me, given that I do approximately 99.8% of the planning, a recent survey shows. I don’t mind that much, especially because I’d likely keel over from a heart attack if my husband ever organized a day’s events. Seriously, he does a lot of other stuff for our kids, and so I’m fine with being Julie the Cruise Director of our relationship.
