A couple Fridays ago I got to get all dressed up and stay up past my bedtime for …
Curious George Live!
I rotated between Mom and Dad’s laps.
During intermission Mom and Dad tried to get me to stand still for a picture next to this sign. But I liked running away from it too much.
I did really well the first half. Then I got really sleepy. And really did not want to go back in for the second half (I maybe screamed, a little).
But then Mom let me wear her gloves and all was right with the world. I even laughed out loud at George and Hundley and the Man with the Yellow Hat!
The best part was when the ceiling was covered with little white lights—like thousands of stars. I liked it so much I kept staring at the ceiling after the stars were turned off, wishing they would come back on.
