Lat night Eric and I went to see Crystal's high school production of Sugar. Let me just take a small minute to flashback to high school myself. We did this play at Everett High in I believe Spring 1994 (c'mon all you ex-EHS'ers help me out!) I worked on the crew for it and have actually never seen the production. Although Some Like it Hot (the movie it is based on) is one of my fav's. Our little theater was designed with a turn table that we could quickly do scene changes with when it suited the play. I am discovering what a true gift that was because Sugar is a very technically daunting play without one. The play was very cute but the scene changes were a bit slow and there are tons of them. Anyway! back to the actual story.
Grandma Alice came over to watch the kids and put them into bed. All went very well until Lucy got hungry. Now, you have to understand that my girl has taken a bottle before when I have gone to the opera with Penny but last night she flipped out and refused it. I think she took one look at that bottle and declared, "This is NOT my mommy!" So, instead of settling down and coming to the conclusion that this is what she was getting (it was pumped milk for crying out loud) she decided to fuss and cry until we got home at 9:30. I took her from my frazzled mother in law and sat down and nursed her. About three slurps in Lucy stopped eating, grinned at me (all around the booby mind you) and had a big sigh of relief. Then she proceeded to consume all that I had so I wasn't even able to replenish the pumped milk that had been thawed. Bummer. When they are willing to take it, pumped milk is like liquid gold! I really hope that we can get this mommy dependency out of the way before my next opera though. Eric is going to have one rough time with her if we don't. Although I think I need to maybe change out the bottle nipple that I have. Come to think of it I think that it is still the slowest flowing one and that might be why she was having such a fit about it. If it doesn't flow like mom, it ain't no good!
