The movie date night. It’s a long-standing, sacred institution for parents. Whether you are geeks or Muggles, the age-old question begs: Whose turn is it to pick the movie? To decide, some folks may flip a coin, play rock-paper-scissors, or even roll a D20. In full disclosure, we couldn’t remember who got to chose our last movie outing. Sadly, getting out to the theater does not happen as much these days, and that rarity makes the decision all that more important.

Very nice article about Who wants to be a Superhero
A Great Idea For a Show
—That Ended Much Too Soon
For superhero aficionados, comic book geeks, and action figure fans, the Syfy Channel’s inspired and family-friendly, competition-reality show, “Who Wants to be a Superhero?” (WWTBASH) was like a little slice of Heaven. Each episode was “entertainment-light,” to be sure, but it could also be an intriguing, emotional, and suspenseful, mini morality play, played out each and every week. Challenging the wannabe “heroes” with a series of contests, the show ultimately attempted to uncover what was (or was NOT) inside of each contestant’s heart and soul (i.e. empathy, selflessness, determination, heroism, etc.). And while fans may not have always agreed with the show’s “elimination” decisions, the audience was all too happy to be along for the ride—on what was proclaimed as—”The Adventure of a Lifetime!”

So excited for this fun opportunity. Really blown away and humbled by the Moms I have been connecting with already! I have lots to say in this pocket of writing and need to start carving out solitary time to do so. More changes in our family dynamic but Mark is being his usual encouraging and supportive self.
Hoping you will follow me there. 🙂
We had a fun time at * Circus Vargas* in Woodland Hills! It was a 4:30 show time perfect for after nap, before dinner/ bed time. It was one of our awesome Geeklings and Parental Units who suggested it on our Meetup groups Calendar.
The price was right through Gold star.com and she sat still * with one intermission for all of it! We had bleacher seats but really, all the seating was close to the stage in the round.
The big top is always a fun site to see, there was face painting, the usual event foods. Top of the show was a chance for the kids to join in with the circus if you arrive 30 minutes early. Lots of hands on fun and an up close view right on the stage.
No animal acts * which Ella was a little disappointed about * but plenty of magic and wire acts as well as Clowns and Trapeze Artists. I asked her what her favorite act was and she answered in her language, The flying Man who was shot from a Canon type device!
We got to meet the performers as we were walking out of the show. It was a great first experience for our 2 year old!
