Music Man Starts Tonight!

The Music Man is in town! This super cute local play is produced by a good friend of mine, Kirsti McCleary. Maia will be Amaryllis on Oct 13 and 21; Jake will be Winthrop on Oct 14 and 20. It's playing in San Clemente, CA. If anyone wants to go with me, I'll get you tickets!

Pierced Ears!

Yesterday, Jeff and I took the kids and Maia's friend Kylie to the mall. Maia and Lizzy got the idea that Lizzy should get her ears pierced. Lizzy was super excited about it, but she looked a little nervous . . .

Once Jenny saw that Lizzy got earrings and a lollipop, she stepped up to the plate.

"Do you want us to hold your hand, Jenny?" we asked repeatedly.

"No." She was stoic, even when the Hello Kitty earrings pierced her ears. Her only tell was the leg that kicked three times after the pierce. Her first words belied her true intentions for hoisting herself into the chair: "Can I have a lollipop?"

Here's the happy group of girls with their new earrings--and lollipops!
