On Thursday we attended our first play of the 2014-15 season of children's theatre. We enjoyed The Emperor's New Clothes.
The day before we'd prepared by reading the familiar fairy tale at bedtime. The children curiously asked how the play would show that the emperor was naked, so that led to a lively brainstorming session about the different conventions that could be used while maintaining decorum (e.g., we never actually see the emperor because he is always off stage, with the villagers staring and pointing at him out of our sight).
We had a good morning and it was the first time I drove to the theatre without getting lost beforehand, an achievement that took me only three seasons.
Bonus Reading (unrelated): The most cheerful, charitable, and humorous response I've seen to President Obama's poorly chosen words about not wanting women to have the choice to stay home raising their children: "The Perks of Stay-at-Home Mothering: An Open Letter to the President" (by a homeschooling mother of seven)
This response isn't as humorous or charitable, but resonated with me since I also left law school to become a stay-at-home wife and mother: "Dear President Obama, I Quit Law School to Stay with my Kids." It was a purposeful choice even if I get to watch my female counterparts who stayed in law school possess very high earning power and receive accolades from the world.
