The Play's the Thing

Well I made it. Made it through the first week of rehearsal. We started a week ago today.

Bean seemed to handle things pretty well. Aside from the whole pooping in her bed incident. That was kind of ugly.

And she's cutting some nasty nasty molars. So she's a little sniffly and whiny today. But she'll have a grumpy weekend with Daddy. And I'll have a weekend of rehearsal.

And I have to say...this whole working again thing...? It's super crazy fun! I'm tired, yes. The stress of arranging childcare and preparing the house for a babysitter every morning, then going to work, then coming home, is taxing. How have you all been doing this for so many years without collapsing? I'm kinda wiped after only a week.

I'm still pretty fracking (my new favorite word from "Battlestar Galactica") nervous too, yes. But they're called "plays" for a reason, I believe. And when writers are as wonderful as the amazing Sarah Ruhl, plays are play-ful, and challenging, and terrifying, and incredible to work on.

In the meantime, we eat Magnolia cupcakes tonight and tour preschool numero uno tomorrow. Life goes on, doesn't it.

Time passes. Listen. Time passes.

I am DYING to try a magnolia cupcake! Are they good? Are they different than a regular cupcake? They sound tasty!

Yeah, they are absolutely worth it. The cake is moist and delectable. The icing is absolutely piled on, and it's that sugary, buttercream icing If you come to NYC they are well worth your time. I'm trying desperately not to eat one a day. So I've switched to the Magnolia brownies. Which are amazing too.

I'm glad you're enjoying working again and Bean is making the transition well! What is a magnolia cupcake?? Probably some delicious something I can't have because it's loaded with yummy things like butter and cream Grrr!

Ooooh Cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery here in NYC. They are delectable and totally loaded with butter. But so delicious.

Its amazing how not matter what field you work in all Mommies go thru the same hectic schedule of day care and work. Congrats on new play!
