Having time with just our Emmy girl was so sweet. Some friends invited us to come downtown to see the Grinch at the Chicago Theatre. This place is gorgeous! Emmy didn’t agree on the whole “take an early nap” thing so we weren’t sure how the day/night would go but we didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to soak up some Christmas with our girl.
She loved the show and sat in awe pretty much the whole time until about the last five minutes. She just closed her eyes and fell asleep so sweetly on daddy’s chest. Even with all the applause, lights, and standing up she just kept napping. This NEVER happens even just cuddling at home so we were both SHOCKED! So sweet!
We planned to ice skate afterwards but the line was over an hour and a half long and this just didn’t sound appealing with an un-napped toddler. So, we played under the bean, dined on delicious treats, and “flew” Em in our usual spot- love this tradition.
Emerson picked out a green pistachio macaroon and we ordered some raspberry cake. When the server delivered our coffees she said, “cream and sugar are over there if you want any”. Em immediately pipes up, “I WANT SOME GREEN SUGAR!!!” Girl was ready for her macaroon! 🙂
