… because I might change my mind.

Goodnight Moon

So we went to the Alliance Theater tonight for the opening night of their production of Goodnight Moon. This is one of K-Man’s favorite books. He was on the edge of his seat the whole night. As an added bonus, when we were parking the car, we saw Grammy and Aunt T and a car-load of cousins emptying out.

Keegan loved the scenery, the story, and the songs. He could barely sit still … and often didn’t. More than once, the excitement was so much that he spun around jumping up and down looking at us like “can you believe how incredible this is? That’s the great green room down there! That’s the old lady whispering hush. Those are the three bears and their chairs! This is totally awesome!!) A couple times, I thought he was going to pogo himself right over the balcony he was so beside himself.

His eyes sparkled. He was mesmerized by it all. And when it was over, we walked up the stairs and out into the hallway where Keegan let out a bellowing “Goodnight Moon!”

It was a good night.

    That boy is so sweet. There is an exhibit here with the great green room and all of the Goodnight Moon stuff at our Children’s Museum. Bat Boy used to LOVE it. You guys should bring Kee sometime.
