Tornado, Tech Week, Openings, & New Pics

Well, we've had a minor victory here in the V household the past day or three. Jacob has napped with minimal fussing. WHOOOHOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The boy HATES to nap during the day. HATES, HATES, HATES it. He just has too much to do (he thinks) to be bothered with sleeping during the day. His mama disagrees... very much so. Because the boy is a dragon boy come 5pm if he hasn't napped. So, we've been engaged in a full on, full scaled nap war.

I don't want to get too excited and jinks it, but I'll take what I can get... Especially since the child has been sleeping blissfully through the night since he was 7 weeks old.

Last night was tons of fun here in Plano (insert all kinds of sarcasm here). I got home from tech week rehearsal about 11pm, just in time to get a 1) in trouble for being late and not calling & 2) a phone call from my mother to tell me to turn on the news because there is some inclement weather lurking about. Lovely. As it turns out, there was rotations in the thunderstorms..... as in, tornado making rotations..... in December?????? Really?????

Then the sirens went off....

Apparently, not kidding.

(Though I do have to say that the city of Plano needs to work on the timing of when the frickin' sirens go off. Do those stupid things EVER go off, I don't know, BEFORE the rotations blows over your house?????????????? Michael and I heard it.)

So, we got to grab the boy and the cat and sit in the hall bathroom for a short while.... it's like Pavlov's dog.... the sirens to anyone who has grown up with the threat of tornadoes. The sirens go and then you go.

Anywhoo..... going to be writing that down in Jacob's baby book.

On the theatre front, we're in tech week. We open on Friday. Those of you looking for a great, family friendly, kid friendly Christmas show come out the to Plano and see Word of Mouth's production of The Miraculous Journey of Nicholas. Like I said, we open this Friday and run Friday night, Sat night and a Sunday matinee & then do the whole thing over again the following weekend.

Enjoy some new pics of The Boy!
