Today I learned something new about my six-year-old son.

Musical theatre makes him want to claw his eyes out.

(Especially when he's one of only 3 boys in a theatre filled with pig-tailed pretties prancing around in pink tutus and waving their magic wands in anticipation of seeing their favorite storybook character come to life on stage.)

Ah, yes. Pinkalicious was in the house. And Wyatt was beyond thrilled.

Okay, so maybe he was a little less than excited. The drama queen in the family, however, was...shall we say...tickled PINK!

I love it that my kids are finally at an age which allows us to enjoy (or suffer through) activities like this together. It often makes for interesting conversation during the car ride home. And for the record, when asked who his favorite character was, Wyatt responded with an enthusiastic "all of them!" So either he really enjoyed the show more than he let on, or his daddy has already trained him that when it comes to women, it's always best to just tell them what they want to hear.

Considering Avery herself is quite the little performer, I have a feeling Wyatt may have many more opportunities to cultivate a love (or at least an appreciation) of the the performing arts in the years to come. Regardless of what she does, whether it be belting out a song on stage or scoring soccer goals, this little girl can always count on me to be her #1 fan.



My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
