I didn't tell her we were going until the day before, because being three and not really having a concept of time, I knew it was better to spring it on her at the last minute.
She was super excited, but not really understanding what a play was either, she was most excited to have her first ride on the big yellow bus. So excited in fact, that she woke up at 6:15 this morning asking if it was time to go. Nick took the day off to stay home with Brother, and after breakfast and a little playtime, we were off.
Um, yes, I had other shoes in mind for this outfit, but sometimes it's just not worth the fight, ya know?
She was captivated by the show, sitting in my lap and watching intently for almost an hour. She loved it so much that she cried when it was over. She's done this on our last two movie nights at home as well. Not sure what that's all about, but glad she liked it.
We had a little picnic lunch and then it was time to load up on the bus again and head on home. We live really close to the preschool where the bus was picking up and dropping off, so we took the opportunity to walk (or in her case, run) there and back. A good way to burn off some energy after all that sitting.
On our walk/run home, she said to me "Yesterday, let's do that again, and I won't cry this time." Told ya the girls got some issues with the concept of time. Ha. And when tucking her in to bed tonight, she told me 'the show' was her favorite part of day. This is how memories are made, people. So glad to have shared this day with her.
