oooh yeah, Mommy Rocks

Friday night brought about a long-anticipated suprise for my little girl. You see, Rachel is a Rockstar. She and her three best friends have been calling themselves "the Cheetah Girls" after the Disney group since last year. So a few months ago I was alerted to the fact that the original Cheetah's would be playing in concert here in NH, and got my baby and me tickets. And didn't tell her. This week, I told her we would have a night out together, just the two of us. With Mommy working so much on Sereknity, she has been feeling serious mommy-itis. (Of course, if I worked out of the home, I don't think it would be so bad, but since she can see me, hear me, and touch me, she doesn't really get why she can't have me. But I digress...) This night was going to mean a lot to her. I arranged a manicure with my good friend Kendra, and being in on the secret, she designed fabulous pink Cheetah nails for Rachel...



I decked her out in the perfect Cheetah-licious outfit, we had dinner, and then off we went! And she still had NO CLUE where we were going...
Until we were right in front of the venue and I had her close her eyes, put the ticket in her hand, and told her to open her eyes and read...

SUCCESS!
What a great time. Of course the Cheetah's are a bit hokey for my taste, but perfect for a seven year old, and I'm sure she wants to be a Rockstar now more than ever. So happy was she that during intermission when I asked her if she wanted to go get a t-shirt (30 bucks!) or poster or something she said, "No, Mommy, I have EVERYTHING I want." sigh. I love my baby.
(and NO, I did NOT knit one stitch that night, and it was good. I had everything I wanted.)

That is awesome. My daughter somehow missed out on the Cheetah Girls, but has learned hip-hop. Not from me.
