It's been years since my husband and I have been to a musical. Thinking back, our son was just a month old when we took him to his first event. I know... What was I thinking taking a newborn to a show? The invitation came from a friend who performed in an a cappella group, and we couldn't turn him down. We took a chance and to our surprise, our son loved the music. He just laid in my arms-didn't make a sound the entire time. Good thing, because I'm sure the ushers were ready to escort us out at anytime.
So this weekend, a friend of ours and her son invited us to see them perform in "The Sound of Music." Boy, I wish we could have done this sooner. The look on his face-his jaws dropped as he watched his friend on stage. I would take a peek at him every now and again and smile. He never took his eyes away. I loved watching his reaction. Our son has no aspirations to act, but the experience was so great. We'll definitely be doing this more.
