Gymboree- the review

Well, we did it. We signed sweet P up for Gymboree here in the burbs. I wasn't sure I'd do it- why pay money for throwing around a few balls and scarves and singing a few songs?

Ah, but we have a very social girl. I mean, she wasn't all up in other kids' faces, she kind of observed. But the kid likes people. And spending some organized time with other kiddos and parents is just great for her. So we went for it.

She loved the music, the fabulous variety of balls, the little clown puppet that kissed her cheek, the parachute, the dancing. And *I* liked it. It was nice to be able to have special time with her like that.

If you're on the fence about this kind of thing, try a class out and see how it fits. And if you find something that's especially good for 15 month olds, I'd love to hear about it!
