We celebrated my daughter's 4th birthday Chuck E. Cheese style this year. Everyone seemed to have a really good time and most importantly the birthday girl loved it.
I enjoy having the girls parties there, but I do have one major complaint about the place. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE CLEAN ALL THE GAMES OFF!!! This place must be crawling with germs. The place is otherwise immaculate, EXCEPT THE GAMES! Now, I don't know about you, but the minute my first born came into this world I became a germaphobe. It is hard to have a good time when all you can think about is the unknown viruses and germs your kids are going to come home with.
But, I digress. Everything was going great and it was time for presents. This year anything Barbie was my daughter's top request. She got barbies, barbie clothes, barbie accessories and a flashlight. Yes, you read correctly a flashlight. Because every four year old wants a flashlight, right?
I guess if it came from anyone else I would think it was weird. But, it came from my Mom's fiancee. He is in his late 60's and gives the strangest gifts. Case in point, the gift he gave my husband this last Christmas. (it is some kind of wind mill thing)
I can't wait to see what I get for my birthday this year!!!
