There I was, out in Repulse Bay seated at a restaurant waiting for my nephew to arrive. This wasn’t like any other day. Today was the first time I was taking my 4-year-old nephew to an event, alone, with no adult supervision but mine.
All the worst possible “what ifs” scenarios started playing in my head and as soon as I started to get sweaty palms. There he was, running towards me with arms wide open and pure utter excitement. The instant I embraced his tiny little body, I knew we were going to have an awesome time and all the silly scenarios I played in my head disappeared.
The event was held at Maggie & Rose organized by CATCH. As we entered the venue we were warmly greeted by the co-founders, Tina and Bonita. It was a fantastic event! They organized wine and massage therapists for the adults. A number of activities for the kids and pretty much ran around ensuring everyone was enjoying themselves.
And OH! We definitely were!
This was the first time out alone with my nephew and the first time at Maggie & Rose. I was blown away! The venue was beautifully decorated to please both kids and adults.
There was so much to do, my nephew decided to try everything in under 10 seconds before deciding where he wanted to spend his time most.
He played Foosball,
tried on all the costumes they had. The bumblebee was his favorite.
He wasn’t sure why a scarecrow was wearing a sailors outfit and moved on to the next toy pretty quick.
While hanging out in this super cute kitchen area, he offered to cook me some lamb chops.
Lamb chops were delicious!
After eating, we played with jumbo legos. He was on a mission to try out everything and this was just a small section of the venue. He still had the indoor playground area to explore.
Once we got to it, he was off – running, jumping and sliding. As I watched him play while sipping on delicious wine.
2 hours later, we were both stumbling out of the venue. (He was exhausted and I might have had too many…)
It was the perfect aunty and nephew playdate.
Thanks CATCH for organizing this fantastic event!
