You would think lots to do would be a good thing but for one parent trying to keep three different aged kids entertained and safe, it just makes it a nightmare.
We were going to go with a friend, but I didn’t feel like I could ask her to watch the baby while I went off with the big kids.
I also thought about asking my favorite babysitter along. I could leave her and the baby in the shallow end of the wave pool and go ride the slides with the two big kids. But then I got worried about being so far away from the baby. And it’s not like you can carry a cell phone.
If Michael was with me I think that split would work fine but I just don’t think I can take all three alone and keep them safe and entertained.
How do you handle taking multiple kids to the water park? Do you go with friends and have different adults supervise little groups – so like one mom could stay with the smaller kids while another takes the big guys on a slide? What are your water park strategies? Which parks do you like the best?
