I broke down and brought the kids to the local bounce house/arcade. We had managed to avoid it for two years, so I guess I can’t complain. The day we planned to go was rainy and that made me not want to go at all! Just imagine a warehouse full of screaming, wild kids! But I put on a brave face and followed through on my promise. They liked the big slides and the bounce house. Caroline loved the four-story climbing playground. Liam did not. But what really got their attention was the arcade games. And tickets. Of course, you have to earn tickets! It was fun, it really was. They had a great time. But what I liked best was watching them play air hockey against each other. They were competitive but supportive at the same time. Fierce but kind. Just another simple reminder of how they are true friends and companions.
