We have a tradition. My sister-in-law and I plan on taking each kid to the Nutcracker this year was Nathaniel's turn.
The problem was SIL went and had a baby the night before the ballet.
O.K not a problem cuz now I have a beautiful new niece.
So my sister filled in for her. and we had a good ol' time.
Tried to make it fun night with pizza before hand. Then off to the ballet.
In all honesty he got a bit bored with the snowflakes and fairies but once the soldiers started waving their swords and the guns fired he was all eyes and ears.
All in all we had a good time. The next morning my little man was doing ballet twirls on the kitchen floor.
