Chuck E. Cheese's

Most kids are so thrilled to play at Chuck E. Cheese's all day long or however long their parents can stand to let them stay but not my little guy, he was perfectly content to sit and just watch all the goings on all around him. Griffin played in the tunnels twice and then just seemed to like just walking around looking at everyone, he didn't appear to be overwhelmed or anything just not interested in playing the games or riding the rides. When it was time to eat he had his favorite, pepperoni pizza and then was perfectly willing to go when we told him it was time to leave. To each their own and as long as he was happy that is all that matters.

Thank you all for your support and kind words, it helps me a lot in so many ways. I still have the anxiety and am working on working it out but it is tough when it is an everyday thing and almost always present. I am slowly but surely getting around to reading your blogs again so don't be shocked when you see that Lora has left a comment.....lol. I miss keeping up with all that you have been doing and how you and your families are doing, hope to see you soon.

I haven't taken Conor to Chuck E. Cheese in quite a while. He was too little to climb in the tunnels. It makes me wonder how he'd do now.
I love the picture. He seems like he's trying to figure all the kids out. :-)

Honey that is how I am at that place. I feel bad - Bastian never gets to go b/c all that noise freaks me out!

What a sweet little guy! I am glad you had fun. My kids love Chuck E Cheese, even Gage.

I have been thinking about you lately :o) Having anxiety can be very debilitating (as you already know). I have had a few anxiety attacks in my life and they are scary. I think I have a mild to moderate problem with anxiety. My anti depressant seems to take the edge off, but still feel anxious at times for no reason that I can pinpoint. That's what is so irritating for me is the not knowing why everything feels so out of control. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and hoping that your anxiety lessens soon.

I bet it was too overwhelming for the little fella. All the smells and noise, wow that place has got to be one of the noisiest places yet. When I first started taking K.C. he sat and watched just like Griffin but after third of fourth time he walked around and smiled alot. He loves the fountain soda dispenser!
I hope the anxiety lessens soon honey. We love you guys and want for you to feel happy!

My anxiety gets painful. You are not alone.

I did "Tag" you today. I had to "Tag" 8 people. Seemed like so many.

Hee Hee...I was going to tag you but Bishops Wife did. So now you have to do 8 things about you. I haven't taken TC to Chucky Cheese in a long time either. We did go to the park today though and we had a great time but it was HOT!!
