Being Lucy's One and Only

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!

Yes spring of 94, cause we were sophomore's and Jeremy was a freshman and a lead which was unheard of at the time.

Our turntable stage did rock for that show. That was one of my favorite plays we did. You want to know something sad? I still get a lot of songs from those shows running through my head- including 45 (Ugh!) I miss that place so much....I always try and stop by when we visit Everett.

I knew my fellow EHS'er would come through! I ran into Miss B at Costco one day a couple of years ago. I think I was prego with Zane. She had a little girl and was no longer in charge of drama. Seems sooooo sad. Also, I have realized how lucky we were to have her because the crazy teachers that Crystal has had to work with this year were completely unorganized in comparison.

Jason and I keep in touch with her at least once a year actually. She has two kids now, Hope, who is in 1st grade and Ethan who is in preschool. (He has some learning issues and maybe mild autism) She is only working through the schoold district now. Everett seems to do that, they take the best teachers out of the classroom and bring them up to the planning and policy making level instead of working with the kids where they really make a difference. Her husband is the manager at Display and Costume.

WOW it seems everyone loved Mrs. B. EXCEPT ME!! I had her for 4 long years of high school.And never enjoyed being taught by her. It's funny that for me she is the one teacher I look back on and think, I could have done without her. I will give her credit on doing fantastic plays though!

enough of the seagull chat. What kind of mascot is that anyway.

Teresa Leigh said...

I love seagull chatter! EHS was an awesome school to have attended! Mr anonymous just wishes he could join in on the chatter :)

Mr. Anonymous needs to realize that seagull chatter is the only way to go. Also, he should get back to work because I only know of one person who would have been reading this blog at 3 am!

Also, what the heck is more fearsome than basically what amounts to a flying rat? Pretty scary.... Here in Maryland the University mascot is a damn turtle! Who's scared of a turtle? Everett High was the best thing that ever happened to me!
