Child Care At San Diego Comic-Con?

Have you ever wanted to go to San Diego Comic Con (officially known as Comic-Con International: San Diego, I think) but didn’t know what to do with your children while you were there? Turns out the Con has child care!

This pic is from the NY Comic Con, not San Diego. Just so we’re clear.

I don’t know why I found this bit of news surprising. Maybe I need to get out more. (OK, I definitely need to get out more, but that’s a different issue.) It’s a great idea, since crowds and kids don’t always go together. Or maybe you just want to feel free to look around for old action figures from your childhood without worrying about your actual children. I mean, not that I’ve ever done that…

This is Ultraman. I own him… I mean it.

There’s nothing WRONG with bringing your kids. But when you’re a parent, it’s always nice to know that you have options.

Full disclosure: we have no idea about the quality of child-care being offered in San Diego for the Con. According to the SDCC website, the whole thing is handled by a company called KiddieCorp, and the pricing and ratios posted online are quite reasonable.

Comic-Con International: San Diego, aka the San Diego Comic Con, aka SDCC, is happening July 18-21, 2013. They say, “Bring the Kids! Comic-Con’s Child Care Has You Covered“. Honestly? This makes me want to go. I’m not going. But now I want to.

Avanti! (That’s my version of Excelsior. It’s not as good but I’m hoping it’ll catch on.)
