Two of my sister in laws and I had the pleasure of taking our girls to see the Nutcracker this past weekend. As our girls get older, it’s exciting for us to bring them new places and let them have some special “girl time.” We all live hours apart from each other and we each have three children so it’s nice to be able to spend some one on one time with just the “big” girls. We were also able to score some cheap tickets to a one hour performance outside of New York City so it was perfect for us.

The show was great and the girls had a blast. Of course, they are still little so there were lots of questions, lots of squirming, and lots of discussion about after the show snacks. Also, it turns out that not only have I never seen the Nutcracker before but apparently I knew NOTHING about the story at all. Luckily, I was able to eavesdrop on some answers that Peggy was giving Natalie during the show to find out some tidbits. Something I didn’t find out until after the show was over though was a shocker – that guy was supposed to be the Nutcracker come to life? Wow, who knew?! Perhaps, I should locate the Barbie Nutcracker that my nieces were telling me about. Yup, I got schooled on the Nutcracker by a three and five year old. Clearly, I’m going to have to read up before next year’s performance!
