Emergency Visit to Laser Quest
The holiday season may be time for special family events, but when it comes to boys - they still need an energy outlet. My boys are great at school, other families houses or any time they can go outsideto play. But when it comes to a rainy cold days, things start getting wild. I know some boys can sit and play with a paper clip for hours, but most have what I call "boy energy". Boy energy is a force not to be reckoned with. That force can be sidetracked with Legos, reading, building games and other games for just so long. Then it is time to either put them in front of a screen or take serious action.
It all started when we realized that the bike ride I had planned for my 10 year old son and his friend, over for a playdate, could not take place because of rain. We don't allow any gun toys into the house, but two Nerf guns slipped into holiday gifts. My normally pleasant son and his normally pleasant friend decided that my 6 year old twin boys made great targets for the Nerf guns. That is when I decided that an emergency visit to Laser Quest was the action needed to separate the older and younger boys.
So I did what any self respecting mom of three boys would do in this situation:
I told the my older son and his friend to get in the car (STAT), strapped my BlackBerry earphones on (STAT) and called Laser Quest.
When a voice answered I said "This is an emergency, I have two 10 year old boys in the car with me that need at least two sessions at Laser Quest. I will be there soon. Please tell me there is room in the next two sessions. Please (in a begging voice).Continued on the next page
