Surprise for DD
Thu, 01-22-2004 - 1:03pm
My DD is a total Cats nut. Not only the animals, but the musical. She has never seen it (except on video) but a few years ago found my Cats CD and has learned so many of the songs by heart. She just loves to sing along.

Well, the other night she told me her Dad said Cats are coming to our town. I asked her where but she didn't know. I just let it drop. Then I was on the computer late the other night and sure enough, there is the ad for Cats at our local theatre centre. So I quickly logged on and got us 2 tickets. I didn't get the day I wanted, so we have to go on a school night, but its a special event. I was able to get second row balcony seats which are pretty good. Any other night and we would have been waaaaay back.

So I am going to try and NOT tell her until we get there. I'm just going to tell her we are going out. Its on March 2 so I have to hold off for a few weeks yet. I told her Dad not to tell her either. It will make her nuts because she hates not knowing, but I'm going to try and keep it a secret until we get into the theatre. Can I do it? Send "keep your trap shut mommy" vibes my way. LOL I think I'm as excited as she will be. I saw it in New York on my honeymoon and fell in love with it there.

Oh I am sending green with envy vibes your way. We would LOVE to go see Cats. My kids would be just in awe.

You can do it. Just tell yourself you decided not to spend the money, so you are not going.

Have LOTS and LOTS of wonderful fun.
