    How many times have you said to yourself (or your spouse, or your best girlfriend) that you wish you had a wife to do all the stuff during your day that you just don’t have time to do? You know… the laundry, dishes, meal-planning, cleaning etc. The list goes on and on. Unfortunately, the hours in your day do not. Enter “Metro’s Other Woman.” As Founder Sarah Benken says, “If you need a life, hire a wife.”

    We're about halfway through the summer... just about the time when most parents start running out of things to do with their kids, or at least start getting tired of paying big bucks to entertain them. With that in mind, here are five fun FREE things you can do with your little ones in our area!

We're about halfway through the summer... just about the time when most parents start running out of things to do with their kids, or at least start getting tired of paying big bucks to entertain them. With that in mind, here are five fun FREE things you can do with your little ones in our area!

1. Get your kids out of the heat and into a great story at one of our area's free story times. Charlotte Mecklenburg Libraries offer programs just about every day of the week. Best behavior gets kids get book time, boogie time, and a sticker on their way out.

2. If you think your kids could use something a little more indestructible, try an indoor play area. Many of our local malls like Concord Mills Mall offer spots where kids can play, and mom can shop all under one roof.

3. If you do shop till you drop, you can still show your kids a good time at an old favorite… with a twist. Checking out the rows and rows of fish and other sea wildlife at this “Fintastic” aquarium-equivalent doesn't cost a thing.

4. Another great option is to watch the planes take off and land at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport Overlook. Don't forget to pack a picnic for this free sight-seeing spot that boasts plenty of shade and picnic tables for the whole fam.

5. Keep those imaginations soaring with a trip uptown to Imaginon . Hands-on play areas, tons of tech options, and a huge collection of books, DVDs, and magazines for all ages combine for more than enough to keep your kiddos busy for at least an afternoon.

And sometimes an activity to fill the afternoon with your kids is just the lifesaver parents need. Especially one that leaves a little money left over to treat yourself!
