The other night we decided to try and avoid a tiring supper time by going out to a Chuck E. Cheese knock-off type restaurant. We liked the idea of ordering someone else to cook our food and letting the kids run their energy off in the mesh enclosed towers and skytubes. And by far, I liked the idea of someone else cleaning up the dried-on pizza sauce and pureed peach and rice mixture from the table.
It was great to be able to eat with my Marvelous.. and
The best part, though, was hearing this conversation between Julia and a "new friend" at some point during her lift and push duty.
Cutie 4-5'ish-year-old: "Hey, you want to come this way with me? We should go down the slide?"
Julia: "Ok." (jumping up to the top platform leaving Luke on one below)
Luke: (silence. staring....and I'm sure wondering what he's going to do now)
Julia: (looking back at him, realizing he's not coming)
"Wait! I can't! I need to help my brother."
(so she jumps back down and resumes the lift and push duty)
...off they ran through the tubes, together. And who knows where her "new friend" went.
