- I had only one show in the evening, so my day was free to spend with the kids. Unlike other weeks, I resolved to stay close to home so I wouldn't expend too much energy running around the city.
- We started by going outside to ride around on their bikes. Lily got a trike for her birthday from us, and Audrey just received a hand me down two wheeler from a friend. Audrey took to it quickly and had a blast. Lily thought it was better to rest her feet on the peddles and let Mama push:
- Mid-morning Audrey started setting up for her "party". She had wanted to have a little party the day before, but we just didn't have time. I suggested she set up outside and she busied herself for quite a while. I didn't know exactly what she was doing out there, but she was quiet, and I make a point never to disturb a quiet child. When we came out she had set full place settings with folded tea towels as napkins, written place cards, cups and straws for everyone. We all at out there together, with Millie diving for the scraps.
Speaking of Millie, she turns 9 tomorrow! My little, wee puppy is nine...
- I had two shows, which meant I left for work around 10:45, and didn't get back until about 9:30 at night. I made my dinner as the kids were having their snack, as well as kale chips. The girls loved them so much, I left them behind. If my kids are wolfing down kale, I will find myself another snack!
- Before I left I read two stories. Fancy Nancy "Delectable Cupcakes" and "The Very Cranky Bear". That's a different sort of vocal warm up than I'm used to, but it was a good start!
- Two shows: a few crazy things happened, like props in the wrong place and rather over-zealous audience members, but that's the best thing about live theatre-- the unexpected.
- Came home to a glass of prosecco and a package of peanut butter cups. My husband is the best!
