Peter Pan

Charlotte peppered me with questions last night as I washed the last of the dinner dishes...

"Do you think I'll ever have a boyfriend?"

"Do you think he'll dump me?"


Where has my little one gone?

I had to remind myself that just days ago we had the pleasure of seeing Peter Pan at Stratford thanks to my dear Mom.  A play about a boy who never grows up.

A lovely afternoon...

just the girls.

And of course I LOVED it...

because I love all period pieces...

where the actors talk with English accents...

and the girls wear corsets...

and the boys top-hats.

But also because it was AMAZING.

And when J. M. Barrie shouted out...

"Do you believe in Fairies?"

Charlotte didn't hesitate to shout back...


And when the cast of characters waved good bye on the big Pirate Ship...

my dear Charlotte waved back.


I've been making progress on the bedroom and the dressing room...

and the Giveaway!

I'll be back soon...

  12. I have found you (via the other Tara!)and I heart your blog!
    I remember being young and telling my mother silly girlie things like what I wanted to be when I grew up:
    "A Mom, like you"
    And when she would catch me day-dreaming and ask me what I was thinking about and I told her:
    "Im thinkin about my future husband" (only I think then I thought I was gonna marry Kirk Cameron!)
    Enjoy your special moments !

    XOXO Lauren
