Insanity has been ruling the show over here lately. After the jam-packed craziness that was March (tons of work, birthdays, an end of winter mini-getaway), spring break really finished me off in the Completely Thrown for a Loop department. I am now one hundred percent certain that spring break for the younger set exists solely to light a fire under the asses of procrastinating parents (like yours truly) and make sure they get summer plans lined up—stat.
Because sweet Jesus that was a long week.
I actually got really upset and whined to my husband that I don’t want to be one of those people who count down the days until school starts again. He assured me that at one point or another everyone is one of those people. This may be one of the few things he’s right about. 😉
Luckily, the week wasn’t all whining and the girls working their hardest to drive each other (and me) insane. There were play dates and movie dates and manicure dates. There were also a couple of special little outings that I’m excited to share with you guys for your own plan making.
First up were tickets to Disney Live!: Three Classic Fairy Tales.
After Frozen Gate, I was really excited when the people at Disney Live! reached out to me to see if we would be interested in checking out a show. I knew that the girls would love every second of it and I hoped it would help soothe the lingering sting of my mom fail (I know. I’m a big baby).
And you know what? It totally did.
My husband was supposed to go with us, but at the last minute he had to work. So we scooped up one of Samantha’s BFFs, made sure all three ladies were decked out in princess fabulous couture and headed on down to Westchester County Center.
The girls were thrilled to be there. Before the show, we hit the bathroom and concession stand (because, priorities!) and then took tons of blurry pictures of ourselves to pass the time. All three girls squealed audibly when it was obvious the show was about to start.
And the show was fantastic! It includes the stories of Snow White, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast as well as favorite Disney characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy, who act as narrators. There were lots of giggles, cheering and singing as the kids (and their parents!) really got into the stories that we all know so well.
And lest you think something like this is only for real little ones, even the nearing nine year olds I had along with me said “This is awesoooome!”
With tickets starting at just $15 (which is not that much more than a movie ticket!), I would totally recommend seeing one of these shows if they’re coming to a city near you.
Make sure to check back next week—especially if you live locally—for another great idea to put in your pocket for rainy days (…or just days when you’re about to rip out every last strand of your hair).
