Little Z took her first visit to The Brooklyn Children’s Museum a few weeks ago and she had a blast. Wait…I had a blast too as did her god mama Tati Nicole. There’s a special video at the end of this post to show you how much fun Z had. A special shout out to the Happy Family truck for providing us with snack and coupons. They were parked right outside the museum! Healthy and free… We’ll take it.
Before I share all her cuteness, I need to say thank you to the museum for embracing so much of the culture that makes up Brooklyn and NYC overall. I haven’t been to many children’s museums but I am pretty sure The BK children’s museum is one of the most diverse. I just love it!
Our first stop in the museum was the Totally Tots exhibit. She started out with sand play fun with Tati Nicole. Next up, Little Z enjoyed water play in the Water Wonders room. Check out the “life vest.” I loved watching her share water toys with other tots and laugh at the water running. She was really fascinated with this room. I’m convinced Water Wonders is the reason why she did not cry when I washed her hair a few nights ago. Hair washing is usually a major fiasco in our house and when it is done, I am soaking from head to toe. Yes me!
I knew there was so much more to explore so I had to tear Z away from water play. She wasn’t happy but her disappointment was gone once we sat in the drivers seat of the NYC bus exhibit. Z, mommy hates buses but an exhibit is just fine. Up next we headed down to the lower level and OMG it was like Christmas for me. Sure this is Z’s adventure but I was smiling from ear to ear when we entered World Brooklyn! The exhibit name is so fitting because Brooklyn is truly it’s own world. Yes, I am absolutely biased on this but take a trip to Brooklyn for yourself and you will agree with me. There was so much to see but we started and ended our time in the Caribbean Travel Agency and Mas Camp. While visiting the Mas Camp, we finally met up with the lovely Adanna of Rattles & Heels and her beautiful daughter, The Princess Fairy. It’s so good to meet moms you admire face to face. The Princess Fairy was so sweet and patient with Little Miss Bossy Pants aka Little Z.
In between we visited the West African Import Store
and rode on a Vespa Italian style.
Then we took a stroll through the Con Edison Greenhouse.The girls loved the watering cans although I don’t think we were suppose to water the plants.
Brooklyn, I am proud to call you my home. Brooklyn Museum, we will be back because you are amazing and Z wouldn’t let us checkout some of the other sites and sounds due to the pan. She loved the pan. She will be getting one for Christmas and lessons are definitely in her future. Here is some video action of Little Z on the steel pan.

It was a pleasure to meet both you and little Zoe! She is a natural at the steelpan music. You can take the girl out the islands but you can’t take the island out of the girl lol
