Express train to snoozeville

After the success of the Bug's first concert, we've been pretty stoked to take her to more. The most recent foray was to see mega-star of the preschool set, The Laurie Berkner Band, in New York yesterday afternoon.

While Joker and my dad were off celebrating my brother's upcoming nuptials, my Mom spent the weekend with the Bug and me, and the three of us set off for our big-city adventure yesterday morning. After the unexplained 30-minute delay, we had a very exciting train ride ("We going fast, Mommy!") and lunch at my fave midtown Belgian place before the show. The show started promptly at 1:00pm to rousing applause from all 800+ fans in the house (500 of whom were kids). The Bug was totally engrossed by the goings-on on stage... for about 15 minutes. At which point she fell totally and completely asleep. We tried to wake her up, with no success whatsoever. The parents all around us thought it was hilarious. There was nothing we could do but tap our toes to the kiddie tunes and wait for her to wake up, which she did just in time for the very last song.

Lessons learned here: don't spend much money to take a 2-year-old to anything. Next concert for the Bug will be a return to Gathering of the Vibes - it's free for her, and if she falls sound asleep, at least I won't mind singing along with the music... Hope to see you there!

That is too funny! It's amazing what they can sleep through, lol. Just be thankful it wasn't the Wiggles ; ) We love Laurie Berkner, too! Her songs are great!
