Chuck E. Cheese

So, Baby Monkey decided that this years party would be at Chuck E. Cheese.

Or, Chuck E. Sneeze, as a friend of mine so aptly put it.

So, we went, armed with antibacterial Wet Ones, a cake from home (or the store), and a few friends.

And he loved it.

And so did his brother.

There was climbing

Deep breaths for blowing out candles (on the Entenmann’s cake…so sue me)

A successful visit to the Ticket Blaster machine

And a good time was had by all.

Well, almost all.


  1. Oh I hate Chuck E. Cheese. Dubya had his party there last year. NEVER AGAIN.

    And don’t sweat the cake. I made Dubs a cake last year and he said, “Mommy, this is a great cake….but maybe this could be my at home cake? And we could maybe buy a cake to take to the party?”

    Also, I didn’t realize Dubya’s and Baby Monkey’s birthdays were so close.

    • We were at the store and I said, “Mmm…look how good that Entenmann’s cake looks!” Baby said “Ooh, I think I’d like that for my party!” Shoulda been a saleswoman. πŸ™‚

  2. When we learn to really listen to our kids they help us keep life simple in the true sense of the word.

  3. Mom,/Carla I’m guessing u meant keeping it simple like Amy did by the Entemans cake and following baby monkeys lead as to where he wanted to have his bday party right?

  4. Oh, I remember those parties and visits to Chuck E. Cheese! My boys are older now, and although I can’t say I miss that germ fest, your post brought back some fond memories πŸ™‚

  5. They’ve reconfigured our Chuck E. Cheese, and it’s not absolutely terrible, and they run a very efficient party. πŸ™‚
