  • We went to see The Paper Bag Princess at a local theatre, tonight. Eric said that he got bamboozled because he didn’t realize it was a show for pretty young kids. I didn’t really explain what we were going to see when I asked if he wanted to go.

    After the show the theatre always has time for the kids to meet the characters and get autographs. Things got better for Eric at this point, when one of the female characters in the show (that Eric took notice of pretty quickly) signed his arm with a Sharpie. Of course, Lexi was mortified. And very dramatic about it.
