The Grinch

Last night Melissa and Chris took Everett to see How the Grinch Stole Christmas at the Capitol Theatre. This is something that has been in the works for a long time and was meant to be a night when Everett got some alone time with Mom and Dad but without the babies (sorry babies). A couple months ago Amanda and Cress gave us a one year subscription to a local Broadway theater series. We knew the Grinch was coming up and that Everett would enjoy it, so we made reservations at a teppanyaki restaurant beforehand. It was going to be a late night so we asked Everett to take a nap in the afternoon. However, when he woke up he just wasn’t his normal self and said that the nap gave him a stomach ache. We didn’t think he was going to be able to go but after we gave all the children a bath he perked up and we headed to Benihana. Everett had the kids steak meal which included a large portion of ice cream as well.

Everett can usually stay up late with no problem – in fact during dinner we were recalling our last night at Disney World when Chris and Everett stayed out past midnight. But he started fading a little while after the play started, and by about 9:15 he seemed to be falling asleep. Then he told Melissa that he was going to get sick. She rushed him to the bathroom but nothing happened. We decided that it was probably time to go home, and indeed it was: Everett got sick just as Chris was carrying him into the house. There is no need to described the details except to say that it took both parents about an hour to clean up the mess. Fortunately he didn’t get sick again and was almost back to his normal self by today, which was good because we got our first big snowstorm of the season last night and we were all able to go out and play for a little while.
