The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

My husband and I took the kids to see Dora Live. They had a blast! There was lots of singing,dancing and jumping up and down.

We had great seats and were really close to the stage. Dora,Diego and all of the other characters from the show were there.  At sixty minutes the show is the perfect length for young kids. The simple story of Dora looking for her lost teddy bear is a must for any fan of the TV show.

My husband and I were pretty bored, and the shrill sound of the characters voices can get a bit grating. I would suggest bringing earplugs for younger kids and yourselves. 

Also it might just be me, but don’t you find Dora looks a bit freaky?

I use a nice safe PLAYPEN.
When they’re finished
I climb OUT.
