Things that make me go, hmmmmmm

A sign that we found at the dollar store that is so perfect for my DQ. It is on the fridge as a gentle reminder to B.E.W.A.R.E. Sweet-boy has been dying to go to Chuck E. Cheese's so we were off for the adventure. This was the best thing they could have invented, a soft cage for kids. I loved the idea and thought about my high ceiling in my garage and a pully system for when the kids need a time out.

Does this really qualify as child abuse if the kids are smiling? He was in there for such a long time that I began to wonder if this would truly be a punishment or just another cool place to play.

It was a crazy place, Saturday insanity, but also supper fun to play video games and be with my best boy. I love first grade but not having my little bud to run errands with me is some times very lonely. I am glad that he still wants to go with me when he is home, even if it was going to Chuck E Cheeses'.

What a great idea! I'm sure Gabe would love it, too, and it would not be a punishment at all.

I know what you mean about missing your guy. I still have a couple of years left with Gabe. He has turned such a corner in the past couple of months, moving from exhausting his momma to entertaining her on a daily basis.

Good times.

If you ever wanna borrow him, I'll put him on a plane to Utah. I'm sure he'd make friends with every single person on the plane, at the airport, and love your family so much he'd never want to leave.

On that thought, forget it. I'd miss him too much...

Aah Chuckie Cheese, the noise, the lousy pizza, but the kids love it and I love to see them running all of their energy off through those tunnels. I love the DQ sign, how great is that?!
