It's My Girl in a Box...


Friday afternoon Charles called and asked if Lucy and I would like to go to Sesame Street Live. I was stoked; Lucy was indifferent. I really wanted to see the new Sprint Center, and this would be Lucy's first big outing. Because the tickets were free, I figured that if Lucy was too young to enjoy the show, we'd stick around for a bit and then leave. In fact, I was kind of hoping for the evening to play out as such. As soon as we got to the Center we walked around and picked up dinner for Lucy ($9 cheese pizza, which she inhaled) and dessert for Me (2, 79 cent donuts from Quik Trip, which I inhaled). Twenty minutes later the show started.



You can see my plans for the evening were quickly thrown out the window. Much to the surprise of her father and I, Lucy loved the show. Her favorite thing to do was to clap after every song was over. Funny enough, it was mine too, but for different reasons...


Thankfully, she isn't quite a year and a half yet, so her attention span wasn't quite up to par with the length of the show. We left five minutes before intermission. Wiggly toddler aside, there is only so much "Elmo Grows Up" any parent can stand. I'm evil, I know.


Saturday we headed down to Brookside for a trip to the Lauren Alexandra Bebe Boutique. It was my first time in the store and I wanted everything. Too bad that it followed boutique trend and sold everything at boutique price. So, we headed next door to the kiddy bookstore. Lucy loved the old-fashion type writer. I think (and hope) she and her sister will grow up with an appreciation for anything literary.


We spent the evening at the Smiths and watched the very sad and very pathetic Superbowl game. We all ate too much and had to be rolled home. Monday morning Charles' flu bug made it's second season debut. He ran a fever for the next twenty four hours. Poor guy. At least he had Lucy to take care of him.


Even though Charles was sick Monday and Tuesday, having him home during the day was nice. Lucy really loves to hang out with her Dad. So much in fact that today she found herself quite bored. When I'm bored, I eat. When Lucy is bored, she sits in shoe boxes. If I followed her trend in thinking, I would a: be much thinner, b: have a bum shaped like a rectangle.




Oh yes, I loved reading all of the comments from the last post. I told you that quiz would be fun and interesting. I can't believe I am blessed with so many good girlfriends that are all pregnant at the same time. Here's to healthy babies!

Hilarious! Rowan likes to sit in boxes, too. The girls would probably love to go to a show like Sesame Street Live. We should probably break down someday and take them...maybe...

Yea that title cracked me up...too funny.

What is it with kids and Elmo?? Savannah watched Sesame Street once and out of all the characters she instantly became obsesses with Elmo. I don't get it.

Elmo's fine and dandy, but I think we are missing the big picture here. That superbowl game was awesome let me repeat AWESOME!!!!! What is Charles filling your pretty little head with? Next season Thomas and I will be there to teach Lucy the right way. She is still yong enough to teach the better way of football.

Charles was rooting for the Giants. That game was a fluke and the Pats should have played like they actually WANTED to win. Boo!

You are the funniest... BTW, I'm glad your rear is not shaped like a rectangle - although if it was, I'd love you anyway!

Lyda said...

As Lucy gets older I wonder if she will continue to sit in boxes when she is bored...people at college might think she is strange. :)

Tiffany said...

I'm still laughing at the title of this post...just wanted to let you know, you got your belly pictures :)
