I’ve always loved going to the gym. Sure there’s some days that I have to drag myself there, but I always love how good I feel when I get a nice workout in. What I haven’t liked in the past is that my son has NEVER done well in the gym daycare. He wouldn’t stop crying & the staff would come get me within 10 minutes of dropping him off. It didn’t matter how many times a week I’d bring him, he never got used to it. So I had to take classes at night & on the weekend which made for a very tight schedule.
However, I got a lot of feedback on a gym in my area that had wonderful daycare, so I decided to give them a try. My son is an early riser, which helps me out since I could take classes before their peak, so my son wouldn’t be overwhelmed with scores of kids. I admit the first time I dropped him off, I kept looking at the clock, thinking they’d come & get me at any moment. That never happened. When I picked him up, he was still quietly playing with his blocks. The second & third time I dropped him off, he said “buh bye”, gave me a hug, & ran off to play with the toys. Again, I picked him up when my class ended.
You have no idea how good it feels to get a workout in during the day. I’m glad it frees up the rest of my schedule & I’m happy that my son is doing so well in daycare as well. Knock on wood, this gym is a keeper!
