Despite the fact that we arrived late, Meredith had no shoes, John was wearing my red socks on his arms in lieu of a jacket, and Bella was frantically trying to finish her homework I was glad I got to listen to that sweet child of mine belt out tune after tune. Even though just minutes before I was seriously contemplating whether bringing all the kids during dinner time for a twenty minute concert while James was away was really a good idea.
Especially, because that sweet two year old of ours insisted on climbing over every seat in the theater whether they were occupied at the time or not. I felt a lot of cold stares and more than annoyed glares coming my way. But you know what? Even though that baby girl of mine jumped up and down and tried to grab the camera numerous times and annoyed every single person around us, I was glad I decided to load up the kids and sit through the drama that is sometimes parenthood.
You'll be happy to know, I have bought another pair of shoes for my wiley 2 year old. The second pair in less than a week. I think whatever that mysterious force is that leaves us with only one unmatched sock has graduated to toddler shoes.
This kid shivered all the way to the concert.
And because I have finally gotten around to posting again, I'll throw in a few more photos because you're such good sports like a picture of my pioneer girl and that oversugared baby of ours on "Nerd" day
P.S. Welcome to the family, Aaron!
