Mama on a Budget: Teeter Tots Follow Up (by Jessica Duke)

Too many tots, too much teetering. As I said in my first post on the Ft Thomas Recreation Department’s Teeter Tots, the whole thing was simply too disorganized, too many children for so little leadership, and too hectic to really be fun for parents too.

After attending four of the five weeks (Knox was sick during week three), I can say without hesitation that Knox absolutely loved Teeter Tots and I absolutely did not. I am not going to dwell on my first post but the lack of organization really did this one in for me. To make matters worse, this is one of the few “Mommy and Me” classes that we attend that actually does cost money, although it is only $18 for the full five weeks.

They did add a second adult helper, which made it slightly better, and Knox really embraced the activities. They also ended the five-week session with additional play- time in the downstairs of the armory with lots of trucks and snacks; although, apparently, this was an option (sans snacks) each week but the teacher did not tell anybody until the final week.

Next session began Friday February 24th. You can find information here: http://www.ftthomas.org/Recreation/homepage.html. Thankfully, I will have recently gone through labor with my second, and not belaboring to go to Teeter Tots again.

  1. I went to Teeter Tots with my kids for years (although it was 15 years ago) and it was great! That was where I met lots of friends for my kids as well as for me.
