a date with Dora…

July 27, 2010

 The day Dora came to town started out as a pretty yukky type of day, it was wintery cool and Akiah was feeling very miserable with a head cold. Even though Akiah, aka Lily, and I had very little sleep for her sleep-ova that previous night, (she had a high fever and shocking cough), we had ourselves a date with Dora and Boots and all their friends, including that hilarious Swiper, and no cold wind or yukky headcold was going to stop us from our 1.30 appointment at the theatre. Lots of little girls and boys some dressed up in costume were so excited they couldn’t wait to see Dora and little voices seem to echo all over the foyer. When it started and the curtain pulled back and the music began there were loud cheers.  Those little kids were so cute, and when that naughty Swiper sneakily poked his head out, they yelled and screamed “Swiper!! No swiping!!” To which he replied his infamous “Oh mannn!!” The kids laughed and giggled, it was gorgeous. At the end millions of bubbles blew all over us and the little ones squealed with delight as they tried to catch them, boy it was so much fun!!

I love my grandkids dearly and being able to be a part of their world is an extraordinary, wonderful blessing. Being able to spend one-on-one time with each one is stuff that memories are made from. Thank you Lily for asking me to go with you that day, I loved every bit of it, just like I love every bit of you!! When we got home to Granny’s and Papa’s place she climbed up into our big comfy bed, tired and still feeling quite unwell, but she had nice things to dream about…Dora..Boots..Swiper..Map..Backpack, and her date with her Granny!

    Isn’t Dora The greatest?? I drove 3 hours round trip last year to take my 4 year old to see it.. He loved it!! I was surprised at how good it was…. The best part was all the kids holding up the stars..
