ari started a chart system a while back where he can earn points for positive behavior and trade them in for things desirable to a 5-year-old boy. the highest prize is valued at 15 points and is a trip to chuck e. cheese. to accumulate this number of points other prizes must be lived without (time on the computer or ps2) which is a great sacrifice. the "magic" number was achieved sunday and we piled in the corolla, drove the 25 minutes to the nearest chuck e. cheese to find the place surrounded with people just waiting to get INTO the building. being the great parents we are we waited and then waded through the masses so that ari could cash in his hard-earned points. a wonderful time was had by all. note-to-self: don't go to chuck e. cheese's on a sunday at 5 p.m. with a child who will dissolve into fits of tears if you can't stay.
