I was trying to think about what to write this morning. Thoughts were going through my head. One of those thoughts was that I am going to Chuck e Cheese later with my six year old for a birthday party!! That made me think…oh the things that we do for our children.
I wrote earlier this week that I had a vomiting/headache issue that took me to the ER on Saturday. Where I do feel a million times better than that, I still have this very dull headache. Lucky me, I get to spend 2 hours at Chuck e Cheese with a headache! Whoop whoop. This places gives me a headache when all feels find and dandy, I can’t even imagine how I am going to feel come 5pm.
For those of you that don’t know, Chuck e Cheese is a family entertainment center with indoor rides and games for children. There are always a million screaming kids and parents who allow their children to run around like crazy people.
Anyhow, my 6 year old was invited to a birthday party there for today from 3-5. He deserves to go to this party. I am the mom who still attends the party with her kid. Not because I can’t leave him or don’t trust him, but because I am flying in solidarity with the parents of the birthday boy. They shouldn’t have to manage 10 6/7 year old boys all on their own. Yes, I understand that maybe this is what they “sign up for” when having a birthday party, but I can do my part. Noah is an amazing 6 year old boy, but still a handful. God Bless the parents that invite him to a birthday party, they have no idea the havoc that he can cause.
I am so thankful for a 6 year old who likes having his mom with him at birthday parties. I will be bringing a book with me and sitting down most of the time, so he can be with his buddies without my hovering. I will be close by so that if he needs me, I am there. More than likely, I will just offer a helping hand to the birthday boy’s parents. Spend most of the time in the backdrop watching my boy having a good time, hoping that my headache doesn’t skyrocket.
Happy Saturday Friends!
