For any of you who are local, Pittsburgh’s International Children’s Theatre’s production of If You Give a Pig a Pancake is phenomenal. It’s a musical revue of that plus Diary of a Worm, Horace and Morris but Mostly Dolores, How I Became a Pirate, Lilly’s Big Day, and the Paper Bag Princess. They’ve got the same production continuing all weekend and much more to come (Velveteen Rabbit, Russian American Kids’ Circus, etc.)
Selah and I had a mommy and me night, which was much needed after a day with a sad little Mr. Adden. The poor guy has been under the weather of late and I’m pretty sure he cried straight for about 3 hours today. I could not muster one smile out of him with any amount of parachute time, ball games, singing, or even yummies.
So it was pure delight to hear Selah giggle her way through the show. She was pretty patient today – cutting paper, coloring, and dressing her babies while I tried to make Adden not scream. During the show, she sat on the edge of her seat with big eyes and a bigger smile. She kept glancing over at me with this kind of expression like, “Is this for real?” We topped the evening off with lots of pancakes, butter, and syrup with Paul and Adden.
The night couldn’t have been sweeter…
