Last night, I met up with my sister in law, her best friend and some of my husband’s family to see “Spank!”. It haven’t seen many plays or musicals but this was by far the most entertaining thing I’ve seen in a while.
I think once you get to know me, the “sweet and innocent” vibe you get from me is all just for show. When I’m not in full mommy mode I enjoy a good dick and fart joke. Also, did you know my two favorite podcasts are The Dave Ramsey Show and Hollywood Babble On? Two very different shows, on two very different spectrum. Give them both a try. I guarantee you love them both.
But back to what I originally came on here to talk about: Spank! If you’ve read 50 Shades of Grey or not, this show absolutely hilarious. It does help that you know pop culture and certain details about the book since it makes it that more funny.
There was only three people in the cast, which made it very interesting to see how they would play more than three characters at once. I could feel the actors passion and love for what they were doing throughout the performance. I thought the male lead looked very familiar. Graydon Long was in the Carrie Dairies (which I only watched for three episodes. Oops!).
I would highly recommend this show when and if it comes into your town.
*I was not paid nor compensated to review Spank! It was just that good that it deserved a rave review from me.
Another year has gone by. It has gotten a little easier when June comes around. I completely forgot about the 12th, which is good, but I was a mess on your birthday this month. I’m waiting for the day that Gabriel can ask me questions about you. I can’t wait to answer them. I am dreading him to ask why it happened that you’re gone. Hope I’m strong enough for that day.
I hope you like the picnic we had for you this year. It was Rafael’s first time coming out for a visit. He ate some grass and almost stood up while we were there. Gabriel had a blast running around with my cousins and eating Cheetos, his favorite. Wish you could see how fast they’re growing!
There are over 20 drafts in my dashboard that haven’t been published. Every time I reread them all I can hear are complaints of everything that has happened the last 4 months. Yes, the last year has been super hard, everyone who has had a child knows it’s hard to even have just one. As I took a shower after both of the kids were finally asleep and my husband went back to work (yes, at 10pm), I had an epiphany of sorts. I need to STOP COMPLAINING and look at the bigger picture!
All I could remember from my day were all the tantrums my toddler threw because “I do it!”, instead of remembering all the kisses and hugs he gave me unprompted. Or how frustrated I was with my husband for not picking up after himself instead of focusing how hard he worked all day, yet still made time to take a family walk and give the baby a bath before bed.
I’m making the effort now to slow down. Think before I speak/yell. Most importantly, listen. If I don’t listen I might miss something sweet come out of my little guys lips.
