Dinner and a Show | Mommy and Me Monday | 355th ed


December is shaping out to be a crazy, busy month. Maybe we’ll slow down in January.

It seems to be a trend that I say we will…but, well, we haven’t yet.

This week, we went to dinner and a show. Originally, it was going to be dinner with the kids and I had decided after a couple of late nights, just me at the movie (SING movie premier. It was great by they way, plan to go see it).

We stuck to our dinner plan.

But, literally hours before we were ready to leave for dinner, I found out I won two tickets to see Octonauts live the same day. Conundrum. I can’t let the tickets go to waste. The kids are enamored with Octonauts. So, we had a game plan change in the bottom of the 4th quarter. I took the oldest three girls to see SING after dinner and Mr. Serious took B to see Octonauts. 

If you’ve ever planned to head to downtown Atlanta, you know that traffic can be all over the place. So, I gave us extra time. We ended up down there an hour early! Thankfully, it was all decorated for Christmas, so we walked around and took some pictures by the giant tree.

Then it was time to find our seats and get ready for the show.

There was a ton of singing along (so many popular and famous songs..I’m bummed the soundtrack isn’t out yet). There was also a lot of seat dancing. The girls can’t stop talking about it!

I had to include Mr. Serious at his show, too. B was excited at first, but it might have been a little too much for her. I think they still had a great night together!

There wasn’t much resting this weekend, but there wasn’t anything official on the calendar, either which was nice! Now it’s back to it again and before we know it, Christmas break will be here!

What did you do this week?

All this to say, JUST GET IN THE PICTURE WITH YOUR KIDS! Who cares what you look like? Who cares how you appear? Who cares what you are wearing? JUST DO IT! Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up! 

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.

    What fun for all of you.

  2. Sounds like a fun night! I had an opportunity for us to go see Sing, but the theater it was at was a good distance from our house; we had just gone to the advance screening of Moana the week before; and have so many other things on our calendar … so I passed on claiming the tickets. Sounds like we need to check it out though. Glad you could get there and how fun for B to have her own special date with Daddy!
