I would love to say I am exaggerating what I am about to tell you...but I'm not...it's true...when I was at the kids doctor office the other day in the waiting room there were 7 parent-kid combos waiting their turn....and 5 out of the 7 had their kids zombied out playing with their iPads!!!!! And we aren't talking tweens....we are taking TODDLERS....WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON HERE???? I mean come on...I admit I enjoy popping into Best Buy and checking out the new "IT" tv...and I have even daydreamed of having a lil tv in my kitchen so I can watch Jeporady while I cook dinner...but my brain had developed....Im not a sponge like toddler that needs nurishing enrichment or what have you....I seriously was sad and shocked. I do not now or ever even claim to be Queen of all Mommies....and God knows when I was really sick during my pregnancy with Isabella Johnny watched his fair share of Blues Clues....but I do not have a flippin ipad for Mateo (should I have put that on the registary? :) ) I mean come on we don't even have The Mario Bros. Anywho...this made me really grateful that Johnny and Bella and hopefully Mateo will too have turned out to be super creative kids...and can entertain themselves with SHOCKER..a book...or some drawing supplies...or WAIT FOR IT...WAIT FOR IT....hold a nice conversation with me while we wait! These creative lil gremlins have actutally come up with pretty great ideas that turn into a lot of work for me...but that's ok...it's worth it. Which leads me to this past Friday where Bella and several of her friends put on their own Ballet production of Alice in Wonderland...they did all their own choreogrphy..costumes...make up design...they even planned a cute lil intermission. I was so impressed and proud! They met every Tuesday this summer to rehearse and then the big day arrived and family and friends packed the backyard to watch their hard work pay off. So to CHEESE CLUB I say CONGRATS...we are so proud!!!!
So much more was done...I couldn't snap enough pictures..my heart is so full of pride....and I love you my sweet Bella Bear!
They have announced next years show...A Nightmare Before Christmas.
