Mooovin' and Grooovin'!

Last week right before we left for the beach I met several mommy friends for a playdate at CHOM in downtown Tuscaloosa. CHOM stands for "Children's Hands on Museum" and has been a Tuscaloosa hotspot for the 10 and under sect for about the last 15 years. I actually worked there to get service hours while I was in High School! They have lots of different exhibits that varying ages would enjoy including an old fashioned general store, a barber shop and the ever popular bear cave! They also have classes for different ages and host birthday parties.
Anderson and I along with about 6 other pairs headed into the museum to attend the "Moving and Grooving" class. Boots Plott and David Barton Rains are pictured above...they will no doubt be a force to be reckoned with as they grow up together in school. All of them are ALL BOY! Notice in the picture that Anderson is trying to figure out how to use the latch in order to escape!! Back to the class... It is very similar to Kindermusik, but you can just pop in at anytime without having to sign up or commit to several classes.

Anderson loves music, and he usually tries to "help" the musicians...see the birthday thread about my friend Dawn who played at his party. Anyway, as soon as we arrived, late as usual...does anyone with children really get anywhere on time??...he launched right up through about two rows of older and much bigger kids right to the front and proceeded to try to climb the leaders leg. She finally just leaned over and picked him up. That's my boy...he's no wallflower!
