Daddy Day Care Part 2

After lunch a decision was made to go to Little Monkeys, a place were the kids can run around a climbing frame with slides and ball pools etc, whilst Daddy sits and reads a book for an hour or so, this is what's known as a win win situation. However, on arrival at Little Monkeys it was plain to see that all of Hull had the same idea, there was not a parking space to be had. Unfortunately children do not worry themselves with such things as no parking spaces, they just get upset at "we can't go there"and so tears began. In a desperate attempt to retrieve the Daddy of the year award, I suggested we try Big Fun. I say desperate, because Big Fun is a place that can seriously damage the body of a 46 year old man. Fortunately (in one sense) for me, Big Fun was also too full, cue more tears. So eventually we ended up at the local park, where I pushed swings, chased round mazes and helped down slides. I didn't get any of my book read though!
