Gattitown

Filed under: Koren — Amy @ 12:37 pm

Last night we joined some friends at GattiTown, a place Jens and I had never been before.  It’s sort of like Chuck E. Cheese (or Showbiz Pizza for all you 80’s kids), except it’s bigger and there are no scary robotic characters lurching back and forth.

We all had a great time – even Koren, who was completely overstimulated beyond belief.  When we walked into the game room with all the flashing lights and bright colors and loud noises and kids running around, his eyes just about jumped out of his head.  He was already really tired so I was trying to get him to go to sleep, but he kept craning his head back to see all the excitement. 

Finally, he ran out of steam and crashed in total exhaustion.  He woke up after about 20 minutes, at which point it was totally past his bedtime, but he managed to stay awake for the whole ride home and a bottle once we got there.

And then he slept for over 8 hours.  Straight.

Did you see that?  Did you fully absorb the magnitude of that sentence?  Go back and read it again.  My kid slept from 8:30pm to 5:00am.

Of course, at 5:00am, he was exceedingly AWAKE, but I find it much easier to watch him sit in my lap and blow raspberries at me for an hour when I’ve just gotten 7 hours of sleep.  In fact, I find that my baby’s Cute Quotient corresponds proportionately to how well rested I am:

And now, I totally want to go to Gattitown every night.

About Me

Hi. I'm Amy. I started this website in 2005 as a place to deposit my journal and photos. It has gone through a few incarnations and masquerades as a family site, but since I'm the only one who contributes to it, it's really all about ME, ME, ME.
