Date Night

This post will not have pictures or video because the iPad is upstairs and I'm too lazy to get it. But at least you get an update.

Tonight was date night - the very first of its kind! A mommy/daughter date night!

After dinner the kids took a quick bath, Poe put on a new outfit and she and I hit the town while Bubby & Bryan stayed at home and watched a movie.

First we hit MYO for some frozen yogurt and conversation ("So mommy, what did you do today? Was it a good day?") and then we headed to the high school to see a Musical Review - a Motown Review.

Penelope was SO excited for her night with mommy. Actually, she was probably more excited about the show than the time with me, but I'll take what I can get. She was literally jumping up and down while we waited in line to get her ticket. She was even more excited when she saw that M, the daughter of our principal, was there as well (with her family of course, M is 5-ish weeks younger than Poe).

The girls spent the entire show dancing, sitting in the same chair, and being mostly good and only slightly obnoxious. Considering that they're 3, the show started at 7, and they're 3 - they did really well. It was all music and most of the music was music you could dance to, so they spent 90% of the show dancing. We did have to remind them a few times not to talk while the performers were up... but they loved the music.

It was pretty great music. The soloists were fantastic, the band was phenomenal, the a cappella ensemble was great, the choirs were fun.

Overall it was a really wonderful evening. She went to bed an hour and a half later than normal so we'll see how it affects her tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to being able to do these things with her more often.
