Love Thursday


Greatest Kid on Earth  after seeing ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’

Last weekend we hopped a train into New York City to see Ringling Brothers Circus. Wanna know how to get a 20-month-old to sit, two straight hours, quiet as a mouse? Easy. To paraphrase Oz’s Dorothy:  Elephants and Tigers and Zebras — Oh my!

Afterwards, we left Madison Square Garden to grab some lunch. Turns out, the eatery was near a subway stop and Maeve and her grandma took a walk over to see the choo-choos. She watched, wide-eyed, as trains roared in and roared out, and waved hello and bye-bye to each and every one.

She loved the circus. She loved the trains. I loved sharing these “firsts” with her.

Happy Love Thursday, everyone!

    Kudos to the hat! I love it! And I also love the circus! When she gets a older you have to bring her to Cirque d’Solei (sorry, I don’t know how to spell that)
