Broadway Baby

I know, it has been forever since I have written. I might not work outside of the home, but my life is still pretty chaotic as of late. I find it hard to find the time to sit down! I think I may have a broken arm as I type this as well. I am going later on to have it x-rayed. It is pretty swollen and bruised looking and my fingers are numb. I have never broken a bone before, so I have no pain to compare it to. I am hoping it is not broken, but we will see. Anyway, back to what I am blogging about. When I was growing up, my mom would always take me to see broadway shows. She would listen to broadway CD's and I would fall in love with the music. I was even known to perform in a play or two as a kid. :) That being said, the love of broadway shows has been instilled in me, and I always hoped to have children who enjoyed broadway as well. When we found out that Annie was coming, my mom and I decided that it would be fun to take Kennedy to her first show. She is already 4 years old you know! To prepare her, we watched the movie and sang the songs so that she would be excited when she saw it. All day long yesterday, she kept asking when it was time to go see Annie. She loved dressing up in her nicest dress and going downtown. During the first half, she watched and clapped and sang along. At intermission, she thought that the show was over and wanted to go home. We stayed for a couple of more songs in the second half and then left so that she could go to sleep. But, she LOVED it! I think that I loved it even more though. I can't wait until she is old enough to go and see other shows with me.
Well, my arm is pretty messed up and hurting, so I guess I had better stop typing now.
