Chuck E. Cheeses With Both Boys!!

O.K. fellow bloggers hold on to your seats cause you are never going to believe this...K.C. went to Chuck E. Cheeses today WITHOUT a major meltdown and stayed for about an hour!! This morning Big Brother was going to go with Linh Linh to Jeepers but Linh got the sickies and could not go. Big Brother looked sad of course. College Boy suggested we go to Chuck E. Cheeses in two cars. He would follow me with K.C. and Big Brother would ride with College Boy. We took two cars just in case K.C. couldn't handle it, Big Brother could stay with College Boy and have fun. No worries in that department! K.C. walked in with us like a champ and went to sit with College Boy in a booth seat. I was so nervous for K.C. it was noisy and I thought he wouldn't be able to handle it but he did. He covered his ears alot and squinted alot but no crying at all! I ordered a pizza (I didn't think we would stay long enough to see that pizza) but we did! I tried my best to find something on the menu K.C. MIGHT eat but there was nothing. Big Brother waited with me as I ordered the pizza and as soon as the tokens came out he took off! I walked back to the booth constantly looking at K.C.'s face for any signs of a meltdown that may happen but he just sat with College Boy for the longest time and watched the people around him. The pizza came after about 25 minutes and I searched for Big Brother, he came back and ate one piece of pizza so fast I thought he'd choke on it. He was off and playing again! K.C. wanted no part of the pizza. I decided I would try to get him to walk around a bit. He was very hesitant but he did finally follow me! We walked past the machine you fill your cup with soda and K.C. had to stop and reach up as far as he could to rub the labels, he did this for about 5 minutes. He liked the Coca Cola label best and I seen Big Brother and called him over to us and asked him to hurry to our booth and get K.C.'s cup! He brought it back and I took the lid off and emptied the Hi C out and asked K.C. "do you want this one?" I pointed to the label he was rubbing. I filled it up and gave it to him right away! He drank it fast, no hesitations! He wanted Coca Cola! We made about 3 more trips to refill his cup, he rubbed the Coca Cola label each time! Labels Labels, I think he may do well with labels!!!! After he drank all that soda I noticed K.C.'s diaper looked especially poofy through his pants so I took him into the stall in the bathroom (o.k. he didn't like this part, but who does?) took his diaper off which I estimate weighed about a pound I swear and put a new diaper on him. We went back out and he headed straight for the little car. He didn't get in at first but I just gave him time and waited and waited, Big Brother coming by and hopping in and out trying to get K.C. in the car. Eventually he got it! I tried to put a token in so he could feel the little car move but he hopped out fast. When the car stopped moving he got back in! It was a great day! Big Brother had about 278 tickets from playing games and this time for the first time he could get K.C. something and hand it to him right away at Chuck E. Cheeses! In the past Big Brother would wind up feeling guilty that K.C. was at home and had not come so he would win as many tickets as he could so that he would bring K.C. something home! I mentioned to Big Brother he could get himself a small toy this time round if he wanted cause K.C. had came with us but he wanted to get K.C. something. It was an awesome day!
Labels, thank God for labels! I think we may be on to something with labels friends!
Thank you College Boy for being with us, you are a real blessing:)
I am so proud of both my boys, Big Brother has such a big heart for his little brother. K.C. who gave us such a pleasant surprise today I cried happy tears!

That is awesome! Sometimes it's so scary even just doing the littlest things because you don't know how they will react. Sounds like you got to take a deep breath of relief on the way home :-)

Wow! Sometimes it's so scary and stressful doing things outside of routine because you don't know how they will react. Sounds like you got to take a deep breath of relief on your way home!
