Call me crazy but I have a soft spot for Chuck E. Cheese. It sort of reminds me of Vegas for the under seven set what with all the ching ching chinging of the token machines, the cheap food and the blinking lights of the video games. Give me a Diet Coke and some Whack-a-Mole and I’m good to spend an afternoon there. Yes you’re bound to get kicked by a rambunctious eight-year-old boy whose parents are nowhere in sight, but at least there’s no cover charge and the drinks are cheap.
My kids love it and I love smiling excited kids. I guess I’m just a really great mom that way. I’ve been known to be happy with some other less than stellar kids activities like the mall, indoor playgrounds and My Gym. But there are some things that most parents find appealing that I just can’t get behind.
