have one of the most popular Childrens’ museum here”, JF says, eagerly
searching what to do in Houston after the girls finally crashed from
their dolls’ high and while I am reading my favorite blogs. “Hmm-hmm, I
reply evasively, hoping the idea would turn into something else”. To be
honest, I thought we came to Houston only to get the dolls and leave. I
was ready to be on the coast and dip my feet in the sea. So visiting a
jam packed children's museum on a beautiful and hot sunny Saturday, when I
could be on a beach... let’s just say I was not super enthusiastic, but
it felt like JF wanted to visit some of the attractions in Houston with the girls.

There even was a small city where children could “play adult real life”. They received a debit card and there were real ATM where they withdrew and deposited money and they could go grocery shopping, go to the restaurant and more! It did not sit really well with me, but the girls had a blast at the grocery store, so I kept my I-can’t-believe-we-came-to-a-big-private-company-financed-museum-that-create-good-little-consumers judgment to myself, sat on a bench, closed my eyes and tried to do some deep breathing while JF was showing the girls how to operate the cash register. Mind you, it’s not the type we had with fake money and a crank when we were kids. It’s a touch-screen computer with every article in separate categories with a real scan for bar codes!
