Something that may cause me to be on the receiving end of eye rolls and eyebrow raises and other judgmental ocular movements.
I like Chuck E. Cheese.
I like the pizza.
I like the fact that on a random weekday morning there are only two other families there.
I like that the kids don't have to wait for food with nothing to do, they just run around and play.
I like that I can play skee-ball until my arm hurts (yes, I have a CEC injury).
I like that Jack goes and gets his picture taken all by himself and then brings me a portrait of half of his face.
I like that I make Sarah get her picture taken with me while she squirms and tried to get away and I spend the countdown to "cheese" fixing my hair in case it matters in a Chuck E. Cheese picture.
I like that Sarah runs around yelling and collecting tickets.
I like that she and I play a game where you stomp on the spiders.
I like that I find coupons everywhere and make a game out of finding the best deals.
I like that I have stockpiled hundreds of tokens with good coupons.
I like that today there were reusable cups I could buy for the kids so that I can just bring them back and refill them again and again.
I like that my kids and husband and I can have fun together for lunch and not drive each other nuts waiting for a waitress or trying to keep squirmy kids in a seat.
