Well, as I couldn't make it to the recital, I decided to make it to the website instead.. (not much of a substitute, but hey.. it's better than nothing!)
Your recital is SO much fun... My brother is positively enthralled by the fact that you are "cool" enough to play Mario :)
Keep having fun with what you do...
Best of luck in everything.. Stay in touch!

You didn't appear fzrazled to me. I admired you for taking three kiddoes to the recital by yourself. I remember how exhausting it is to take little ones anywhere, especially to performances.One of my shining memories of my girls' early years is of taking my two oldest to The Nutcracker when they were five and three. Like Alice, the three-year-old was absolutely entranced. She started ballet a year and half later, and her sisters followed in her footsteps. It's because of her that I was at that recital for the 19th year in a row, watching a daughter dance. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. It's why I love reading your blog it takes me back to those golden, fzrazled, wonderful, challenging days of raising little ones.
