This will probably sound really stupid to some people.
My 5 tr old is doing a morning day camp from 9 - 11 starting next week. a Safety City camp. Is it wrong if I don't linger those 2 hours and go do other things? I will have my 1 year old with me and she will NOT make it waiting around.
I've seen moms at the Rec center just chill there the whole time, and I don't want to be irresponsible. I just feel like I could be getting some stuff done.
EDIT: Some of you brought up some good questions/points and I just wanted to add a few things.
It's at our local rec center, the 2 hour day camp takes place inside one of the gyms. We have taken many classes here before and I know 1 of the 2 instructors, but this will be his first camp.
He has attended pre-school in the same district and for the last two years - he'll be in K in the fall - ao he is used to doing things in a structured setting since I used to drop him off and pick him up from half day Pre-K. One of his old classmates might do the camp with him, there were still a few spot left when I was talking with his mom about signing up and I forgot to ask if she ended up signing up her boy. But I believe there is one familiar face in the camp who took a sport's class with him last year. It seems some moms stay others leave during the 45 minute classes, or go workout or what have you, I just didn't know how it was handled during the actual camps. I like the idea of calling ahead and will see if I can reach their front desk today. If not, I'll ask when I am there tomorrow. :)
If they would have had a "Mommy and Me" class at the same it would have been PERFECT and I could have done that with my little one. We don't have memberships at the rec center - which is stupid, we need to just get them since we do so many classes - so I don't know if they will let us use their outdoor play area or not. If so, I can just play with my daughter there until his time ends. Camp is Mon-Fri this week and Mon-Thurs. next and it would be nice to get some stuff done while only dealing with one child instead of 2.
Hmmm...still torn. I'll ask.
Would you still leave your kid or still hang around?
