It was nice to announce to Dave and the kids today that Mommy had made NO PLANS for Saturday. A rarity, it seems, these days despite an initial plan to keep the summer months under-scheduled. I called tomorrow a “family day” and told Charlotte and Thomas we could do whatever they wanted. So many of you can guess what my 6-year-old immediately suggested…. a certain pizza and video game establishment with a giant mouse. I said we could go there without thinking it through more clearly. It’s not that I mind the place. Just that when you conjure up bucolic images of family days gone by, picnics and popcorn come to mind before tokens and electronics. Maybe we can get a bucket of chicken and eat it on the paved parking lot out front.
