But he pulled his little self together and come dinnertime, we had our family, the boys I watch and their mom, and the Sischo’s over for homemade pizza, cake & gifts. (that was a busy day for me… watching 4 boys including 1 crabby paci-free boy, making 4 pizzas & a cake, and keeping the house in decent shape).
AJ received some cool gifts including a tackle box and a Lightning McQueen fishing pole from his father, of course. I mean, it’s never too young to get ’em started, right?
As soon as gifts were opened we packed up quick and headed out to Chuck E Cheese for about an hour. We had lots of tokens that were gifted to us, so everyone was able to play for free. We didn’t take into account that it would be spring break, so it was much more busy than we expected. But I think everyone had fun and Daddy earned the boys enough tickets with ski-ball so they each could pick out a junkie car to bring home. They were thrilled!
The night when better than naptime. He at least fell asleep pretty quickly (he should, he didn’t nap and played hard all day.) He woke up several times, but it wasn’t terrible or nearly as bad as it could have been.
