“There’s no place like home…”
My kids are pretty awesome.
Over the last number of years our family has found ourselves cozily tucked into a wonderful community called: CHILDREN’S THEATRE.
In fact, when my middle daughter first entered the local children’s theatre group… I made a video.
It’s terrible. It is one of my first vlogs – bad lighting, the scarf made me look like floating head, shooting from the chin up (BAD JENNY!), I’m not looking into the camera… and my braces. Oh have mercy.
So. Our family is quickly approaching the next production with this group – Wizard of Oz. If I am hard to find the first couple of weeks in December – it will be because I will be playing the role of THEATAH MOTHAH… applying mascara and eyeliner to my children… silently cursing myself all the while.
HAVE YOU EVER TRIED PUTTING EYELINER ON A 4 or 5 or 6 YEAR OLD???
OR A 12 YEAR OLD BOY?
Let’s just say… only a mother’s love… only mother’s love…
Where was I going with this?
The kids’ cast bios are due, so I finally sat down with the kids to get them written. One of the questions was, “There’s no place like home…” What is home to you.?
Joel, the 12 y.o. – happiness. *swoon*
Olivia, the 9 y.o. – warmness. *awww*
Lucy, the 6 y.o. – a house. *blinkblink*
*Jenny steps away to tuck the girls in*
Just got back from praying with Lucy. She wouldn’t get off her back because she felt like a doll was behind her.
In the middle of the night last night she said bears came out of floating red eyes… I found her in the bathroom, screaming… standing in a puddle of pee.
My poor little girl…
So tonight we prayed for sweet dreams… For Jesus to fill her mind with happy things… like flowers and unicorns and chips-n-salsa and the softest blankets…
She added, “And sausage.”
