Weekend Reminder: Don't Leave Your Kids Behind at Chuck E. Cheese

True story: Kids left behind at Chuck E. Cheese are put into a Chuck E. Cheese mascot training program-slash-fight club.
Just two days after a Maryland family left their three-year-old daughter behind at Chuck E. Cheese by accident -- and were only alerted after seeing her picture on the 11 p.m. news that night -- Texas has one-upped the Old Line State.

KTRK reported this afternoon that a five-year-old girl was left behind at a Pearland area Chuck E. Cheese last night. To make matters worse, it was the little girl's own birthday celebration:

Officials say the mother has a total of 10 children. Those kids were among 19 attending the girl's birthday party. The mother apparently woke up at about 7 a.m. today to get the kids ready for school and realized the five-year-old was missing. At that point the girl's mother called 911.

Unlike the Maryland case, the Pearland child has not yet been returned to the mother's custody.

Ten fingers, ten kids -- counting them can't be that difficult. This isn't Home Alone; being left alone with a man in a Chuck E. Cheese costume will be a far more terrifying experience for your kids than fighting off Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. Take it from a kid whose own parents forgot her at Camp Misty Meadows one year.

The food and entertainment at Chuck E Cheese is amazing, and has been for 20 years! It's hardly surprising that a parent might get lost amidst the fun and pizza and the overall great vibe. Why is it that children deserve more coddling and attention than a parent? We parents set these parties up, then attend, and then have to smile repeatedly. And answer questions about pediatric dentists. And diets.

Why can't we just leave the kids behind to get a ride home if they're having fun? Isn't fun for the kids the point of the party? Memories.....helloooo

Maybe birth control is not such a bad idea!

It took this moron nearly 12 hours to realize one of her children was missing? What is up with that?   I'd like to think it would have taken me all of 12 seconds to discover one of mine was gone. 

Maybe this Mom needs to stay out of Chuck E. Cheese's Club No Minors for the next birthday celebration.
