Socialite Sunday

I hope this blog finds everyone enjoying their Sunday. I've been thinking a lot about holiday traditions with my family. We took the boys to see The Nutcracker yesterday, I LOVE the music. It is literally my all time favorite! The boys were bored though. I'm curious if I'll ever be able to instill interest in the arts for them. I've also been neglecting my pearls, plan on wearing them much more in 2011.

  5. What a great photo! I love your boys' sweaters! How "New England" with the lobsters!

    I had a similar one for Livie a couple years ago (it was raspberry with a light pink lobster), but she outgrew it.

    The Nutcracker is great, but I can see why boys wouldn't be into it. Maybe they'd prefer a musical (like The Lion King or something similar) or a jazz concert?

  6. Jackson saw The Nutcracker with his class. When I asked him what was his favorite part, he replied, "Nothing". LOL

  11. Love the sweaters!

    I remember dancing in the Nutcracker numerous times. Since I am tall I was always stuck as a toy soldier...fighting off the Rat king and his fellow rats, lol!

  15. The ballet is a tough sell on most boys, Beth. They don't buy into the magic and are without the attention span needed to follow the story, The Nutcracker included. However little girls get into the costumes and how beautiful the dancers appear.

    Take the boys to see musicals in NYC or even to The Blue Man Group. When they are older take them to see plays and always make it a point to visit the art museum in any major city you visit. Look out for kid-friendly orchestra events and take them to see H.M.S. Pinafore if you see that comic opera offered. Just immerse them when possible and they'll end up loving the arts.

  19. With 1 boy & 2 girls I will say that it is a little harder to bridge the cultural divide with boys. My approach was put in the effort & let go of the results. I am happy to say that at almost 27 my son is almost there!
    Ho ho ho,
