Goldilocks & the 3 Bears

So I'm really working on not "over-programming" myself & my family. When your husband kindly says: "We can't keep up with you," you know it's time to re-evaluate your schedule & corresponding priorities. When your orthopedic surgeon tells you that yes, your neck & back pain is probably exacerbated by your stress level, you think Okay, God. I get the message. I will learn to be still... at least more than I have been.

So you may or may not see me at UH's Children's Theatre Festival this Sunday at 2 pm. They're showing "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," which I think would be so fun for my 2 year-old. There are also performances this Thursday at 10:30 am & this Friday at 10:30 am & again at 1 pm. Kids tickets are only $8 with adult tickets at $9 -- a bargain. Buy your tickets by phone & ensure ticket availability by calling 713-742-2929. Group discounts are available and UH encourages groups with children ages 2-14.

Again, I may or may not see you there but I'd love to hear your thoughts on the performance regardless. Let me know by adding your review to a comment to this blog. Thanks!

Until the next nap time... (Yes, I'm posting a lot today while Little K enjoys nursery school. Tomorrow, well, that's another story since it'll be our play day!)

A.D. Players Announces Great Season for Families

If you haven't yet checked out a performance by the A. D. Players, don't miss another chance. I just received in the mail the line up for its 41st season & I'm excited. While the A. D. Players put on some productions better suited for adults (like "The Importance of Being Earnest" and "The Heiress"), they also do a great job of offering performances targeting families with youngsters.

The Children's Theater is located at 3471 Westheimer, inside St. Luke's UMC. Take a look at the 2007-2008 productions the A. D. Players have planned for your family. I have borrowed this information from the A. D. Players' brochure. I have not seen these yet since the season hasn't begun yet.

"The Great Cross-Country Race": Sept. 19-Oct. 20, 2007

"Christmas Went That a Way": Nov. 28-Dec. 22, 2007

"Peter and the Wolf": Jan. 30-March 1, 2008

"The Emperor's New Clothes": April 24-May 24, 2008

"Samson": June 25-July 26, 2008

The Children's Theater package allows your child to see all 5 shows for only $35. As the A. D. Players' brochure puts it, "For less than the price of a family trip to the movies, see five, great family-friendly shows that encourage the mental and emotional growth of your child."
