To Cinderella or Not to Cinderella

I need your help.

One of our local ballet companies is featuring the story of Cinderella this month at our local theater. As you all know, Alise is taking dance this year and is really in to "Angelina Ballerina" and has always loved the story of Cinderella. I called the box office this morning and the tickets are $25. That's $25 period. Whether you are 3 years old or 25 years old (like me! - Ha!). There is also non-reserved seating.

Am I crazy to want to take my daughter to this? Is it worth the money? Do I take the chance of taking her now or waiting for (hopefully) another opportunity when she is older? I just have this wonderful idea in my head of us dressing up and going to the ballet.

Let me know your thoughts.

    Well, I would totally go for it! I know the tickets are pricey, but what memories you will have getting dressed up with your little girl to see it! I totally remember my parents taking me to the Nutcracker when I was 4, it was very magical to me!!

  2. Take her!!! Mommy/Daughter memories! (even if it's more so for you than for her)

    What a fun idea.... you should do it!

  3. Oh yes, that will be so sweet! I am taking Sofia to the big Lion King Production that travels the country--hello $125 per ticket. Thank you credit card.

  4. There really is no way I could vote no to Cinderella. I have wanted to take the girls to a production of Cinderella in Montgomery, but Joe will be out of town that weekend and I doubt they want a mom and her four children (including two boys who would not want to be there) in the audience. If it fits into your schedule this year, I say go for it!

  5. Cease the day and do it! It will be a great girly day and dress up would be the best part!

    Lovely blog! X.

  6. I think it would be SO worth it. I would definitely go. You might get another chance when she is older, but I think it would be so fun to go while she is small. I'd go...definitely.

  7. It would be fun, but there will be opportunities when she's older too & more likely to remember it!

  8. You should go!! Absolutely!!! (We plop down around $150 to all go to the Nutcracker every year. Yes, it's expensive, but the family time s worth it!)

    ROLL TIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. You should take her. We have been taking the girls to concerts and other performing arts events since they were born. Do they have a matinee? That might work better than the usual evening performance.

    And I do believe that not only will Florida and Alabama meet for the SEC Championship, but it would not surprise me if they also play for the National Championship.

    Congrats to you for today's win. My boys just won their game too.

  10. Take her!! These moments are so precious. I remember taking my daughter to the Saratoga Ballet. It was such a bonding time for us. Go for it!!

    Hey I just left a message on your other blog. So here I am again to say, "Roll Tide". What a game.

    ~hippo hugs~

  11. I say go for it! You never know when they are going to grow out of one phase and be into something totally different. Take the trip and get the pics to remember it!

  12. JUST DO IT cause you only live once! And YES it would be fun to dress up and go and have a girls day!!! I remember doing things like that with my mom. GREAT memories!!
