My husband took a quick guys' trip to some sports event with friends over the weekend, so I took my boys--who, I feel it's important to remind everyone in this post, are 6 and 3--on a small day trip out of town.
After spending a few hours at the zoo, I asked them if they'd like to go to Chuck E. Cheese's.
"Sure, Mom," my older son said. "Except we're not in the mood for pizza."
"Oh," I replied. "Well, if I buy it, will you eat a little bit of pizza while you're playing games?"
"Oh, I don't think so. No thanks," he said. "I'd rather have sushi."
Dear God, what have I done?
