The performance the next day went really well. The girls were all so cute and did great. I was going to show you a close-up, but with all the stage makeup, it looked too Toddlers & Tiara. Neve was very thrilled with it all, and we went out for ice cream to celebrate. When I put her to bed, she said, “I wish this day wasn’t over.” And that was worth all those early Saturday mornings.

Sunday was a bit dreary, but the rain held off so we headed to the Teddy Bear picnic. The kids love the “hospital” for stuffed toys where they treat any imaginary (or real!) medical problems. Neve told them her bear had a broken leg, so she had to have x-rays, etc., and ended up with cast. Chloe couldn’t decide what was wrong with her bear – she was debating between all kinds of situations that would have startled those lovely medical volunteers, from shaken baby syndrome to a botched suicide attempt. Thankfully, she settled on a less creative broken arm. I think she may be getting too old for this. She obviously agrees; she wouldn’t even let me take her picture. I can only imagine what Spencer would have said, but luckily he was at a birthday party.
