Our precious Little Lady is six months old today, and just as the Hus-b and I do each month on her “birthday” we visited a museum. Specially marking each month during a child’s first year has become a popular custom, whether it’s a photograph in front of that day’s newspaper, a numbered onesie or lighting candles on an ever-increasing number of cupcakes.
Blessed with an abundance of free time and an extremely chill baby, we decided to celebrate the Little Lady’s special day each month with a visit to a museum. (She might as well learn now that her parents are nerds.)
One Month at The Legion of Honor (A stroller at a museum? ROOKIES.)
Two Months at The Lake Tahoe Maritime Museum (The Little Lady was decidedly unimpressed, but this is actually a fantastic museum for children.)
Three Months at The Walt Disney Family Museum (So incredibly thorough and information-dense that it would take several visits to truly see everything. What a delightful surprise in the Presidio!)
Four Months at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Little Lady’s mind was so thoroughly blown that she passed out face forward in the Baby Bjorn.)
Five Months at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (Two weeks left to visit the Houdini exhibit, people!)
Six Months at The Cable Car Museum (Touristy, fascinating and totally FREE.)
The Little Lady won’t even remember these visits, but they have been thoroughly edifying for the Hus-b and me. We’ve acquainted ourselves with some of San Francisco’s treasures, spent quality time together as a family, and learned enough about Garwood boats, Houdini and cable cars to slay any Trivial Pursuit question on the subjects. We’re saving tickets and photographs from each visit that we plan to frame en masse, and we hope that one day the Little Lady will look upon those momentos and truly understand how rich and wonderful her parents want her life to be.
