The Naked Nutcracker

Evie and I went to see the Nutcracker this weekend with our friends Caroline and her daughter Eva. The girls were dressed to impress and boy, did they. Evie spent 1/2 an hour with her jewelry box trying to decide what jewelry to wear.

I had to convince her that she shouldn't wear every necklace in there. I think she looked quite stylish and she received quite a few compliments.

One woman came up, squatted down between the two girls and proclaimed, "This is what having a little girl is all about!" I have to agree. They were adorable and enthralled. The only part that Evie didn't like was the boys who danced around because at one point she said, "Mommy, I can see his butt!" (And there is no way for me to write the disgusted inflection in her voice when she said that.) I responded, "Yes, I know." I paused and added positively, "But he has on tights." She looked at me as if I had fallen victim to the Emperor's New Clothes and said, again with disgust, "But you can still see his butt!" And you could.

Still, I think the ballet was a hit and I hope we can go again next year. It was wonderful!

Look at those beautiful young ladies!

That is what Ladies' Night is all about....getting dressed up, heading out with your favorite gals, and laughing at men's butts. :)
