The day started off on a high note as we arrived at One World Trade Center
Visiting Santa wasn’t the issue, the problem was that I could no longer hold it over the kids’ heads they had to be on their best behavior or would make it on the naughty list. And sure enough, soon after requesting noise-canceling headphones and a boomerang, the first temper tantrum started.
While I was trying to learn about various buildings through the tablet that visitors can pick up, my 3-year-old decided she was done and wanted to take a nap on the floor. My 6-year-old son chose this time he needed to use the bathroom. Scooping up my whining 3-year-old, we made a pit-stop at the bathroom and then ate chocolate hoping to obtain more time to check out the amazing views. Well, that bought me a limited amount of time. Soon, while working to capture a photo of the Brooklyn Bridge, the kids wondered or“
But finally, at 1,776 feet, the highest temper tantrum was had by my 3-year-old and it appeared our time at the top of New York City was over. I could have stayed another hour looking over the City, but tired kids won out.
So, to all parents visiting Winter Onderland at One World Trade Center, see Santa after you get all your photos and views. If I had to do it all over again, threats of coal in the stockings would have been aplenty.
