The Not-So-Terrible Twos

The Not-So-Terrible Twos

Recently, my youngest turned two. I’m fully aware that some deem them to be the “terrible two’s” but I’m convinced they’ve got it all wrong. Two is a magical age, with one foot still stuck in babyhood and the other moving forward into childhood. My oldest was already a big brother before he turned two and I regret viewing him as older than he really was. When my second son was two, I then had two toddlers, meaning my attention was divided and I was, consequently, very scatterbrained and tired. Now with our third born, I’ve decided to enjoy it, not wish the hardest parts of it away nor lament the end of a sweet season.

Review: Mary Poppins at Starlight

Review: Mary Poppins at Starlight

With top-notch choreography, sets, and special effects (this show is full of magical surprises), you would never guess that Mary Poppins was produced by Starlight in just three weeks. Fans of the film will enjoy favorite songs performed to new choreography and story-telling and the addition of new songs that are fun and catchy. Our favorite scenes were Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Step in Time, both well choreographed. And, as mentioned before - be sure to stay for the end! The finale magic is worth the price of admission and had my children beaming all the way home.
