You might remember that around this time last year, we took Alex to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo to see the Jonas Brothers for her birthday.

Dear God in heaven, this past weekend we did it again.

You have to understand:  we didn't intend to do it again.  But there was a certain confluence of circumstances -- a promise of a Disneyworld trip that fell through, tickets to the concert that were made available to us at a ridiculously low price -- that made it plum near impossible for us not to take her to the concert.  And when she found out that Demi Lovato was the opening act, that did it: she flat out lost her mind.

I have to admit, sitting in that darkened arena watching her enthralled and excited with the performance was pretty awesome.  I mean, really, don't we parents live for the happiness and elation of our kids?

Just please, Lord, don't let me ever have to do this again.



(Happy Love Thursday, everyone.)

Song:  My favorite things, as performed by Pomplamoose.  My heavens, I love this duo.
