- I had to deal with her asking to go dance with the ballerinas quite a lot.
- She was really preoccupied during the Cinderella part, because Cinderella is supposed to wear a BLUE dress (she wore brown tatters & then a fancy GOLD dress).
- During intermission she twirled with another little girl in the aisle.
- She was quite taken with the 2 week old baby girl that was sitting behind us, and thankfully the grandparents of the baby were really good with my Chick and even let her help hold the baby & stroke her hair.
- She really was good, but lost interest in the very last (and very long) section. I don't blame her--it was the least "entertaining" and flashy of all of them & it was very long. Plus she was up past her bedtime. That's when she started trying to get into my purse, crawl under the seats, etc. But all in all, I can't complain.
Afterwards, we'd gotten outside and Chick got really sad because she wanted to talk to one of the "ballets" (aka ballerinas). I told her that they were dressing and getting ready to go home to bed, but a man nearby told us that the ballerinas were in the foyer. So we went back inside and met one of the ballerinas. I think the conversation went something like this:
Chick: You have a pretty dress on. I have a pretty dress on too,
Ballerina: You do have a pretty dress. Is it new?
Chick: Yes. You have flowers in your hair.
Anyhow, it was really fun. I'm so glad that I have little girls to celebrate the "girly" stuff with. I'm ready to celebrate boy things too, if we get a boy this time... time will tell. Anyhow, the baby was kicking up a storm...maybe a future dancer or musician that wanted to join in the fun?
Sounds like Monkey had a great time with her Grandparents (and vice versa). So I guess the evening was a success.
