Me, P, & Annie ...

P at our first full beach day last week. In her Liberty of London for Target suit. Isn't it cute?

Happy Monday! Our weekend was pretty mellow as I mentioned it would be. But the stand out moment was yesterday when I took P to see her first play, Annie. We made it a girls outing since I'm not so sure Eric would've been psyched to sit through three hours of singing and dancing. But more importantly because I felt like we needed some fun, mother-daughter bonding time since I feel like all I've been doing lately is disciplining her. Those of you with kids about three years of age or older most likely know what I'm talking about. I mean the attitude at this age is unbelievable! They're like little nightmare glimpses into their teenaged future if you don't nip them in the bud now! And girls (I speak from experience;) are worse than boys. So since I'm scared shitless of having a horrible relationship with her when she's a teen I have no problem laying down the law every single time these disruptions occur. But after a while it seems like all the sweetness has been squeezed out of our relationship. Until yesterday:)

We were back to our silly, goofy, lovey selves. P was practically dancing in the aisle and was in such awe of Annie that she wanted to meet her. So afterwards we did, along with Miss Hannigan and she even had a conversation with Daddy Warbucks. She was beside herself. On the way home all she talked about was performing on stage. It was a pretty incredible day. But best of all I realized that my sweet girl is still in there.

P.S. Congratulations to Emily for winning the Design Star challenge! I knew she'd win! Can't wait to see her new show later this month.

I LOVE it! I saw Annie at about her age and still remember it, so I know she will have wonderful memories of this experience with her mommy for years and years! So much fun!

Annie is a perfect first play for a young girl to see -- I'm so glad you two got to spend some time together. And P looks so cute in her Target suit! I need to get over there to do some shopping.

Great photo of P...it looks like something straight out of a fashion magazine!

I also loved that you had a mother-daughter day and to go and see a classic such as Annie. How fun! Glad you both enjoyed it!
