Clarabelle is just shy of 8 and today, for the very first time, I went to Chuck E. Cheese. It wasn’t my idea. I was kind of hijacked by my parents. Last night they announced to the kids that they would be taking them and then turned to me pleading that it would help a lot if I came too. So I did.
And you know what? It wasn’t that bad. Fish was too busy with work to come with us, lucky man. We decided to do the buddy system since there were 3 kids and 3 adults. My mom had Clarabelle, my dad had Pixie and I had Sprite. Sprite oh Sprite, the kid kills me. She didn’t want to ride any of the ride ons and the arcade games confused her. I thought we’d have some fun with Skeeball but she’s too weak to get her ball up the ramp, hehe.
When we all regrouped to cash in our prize tickets, I found out that Pixie and Clarabelle had a grand ol’ time. I think I’d like to go back with just Clarabelle and let her run around wild there.
Later in the day I took Sprite with me to Costco. It was nice having more one on one time with her. She had a Pop Tart sample, her first taste of a Pop Tart ever. The smile on her face was priceless. My lil smudge, she’s a handful but it’s that spice that makes her so fun. On our way out, two men were in a heated argument, about to throw blows at each other. I couldn’t figure out what it was all about. Security was called and they diffused the situation. The whole incident gave Sprite a good scare. Adults are stupid sometimes.
