Perks of the Job

Being a mom is not always fun. I get pooped on, peed on, puked on, and punched. I hear whining, complaining, naughty words, and very little by way of encouragement. But every now and then...something happens that makes it all worth while.

The circus was in town!

Before we headed into the arena, the kids know that you have to have a buddy so they immediately grabbed the hand of their favorite adult. And no, it wasn't me.


It was this nice young man who happens to be friends with the Co-ed and doesn't yet have a blogging nickname, whom they kids had literally just met about a minute before. Do you like their wizard hats and bags of gold-encrusted cotton candy? Well, it doesn't actually contain gold. It's just priced like it does.


Everyone was ready for a good time!

Baby loved all the music and lights. She was going nuts! And who wouldn't? It's the circus, people! Although I'd only been once before as a teenager, I love the circus. The animal acts are my favorite but I love a good death-defying feat of daring, too. The clowns were funny and the ringmaster was a magician so that was pretty cool. (I promise I had pictures of the others acts but they didn't come out very well...)


What did the kids think?

Awesome. Completely awesome. Can we come again tomorrow night?

And what did Baby think?


Well, we'll ask her later.

Awesome!!! You're such a fun mom. We saw the tickets, just couldn't get it down (lame excuse...but jetlag!!!!). For sure we'll have to do it next year.

Those hats are so cool! (And I loved the part where you said they are priced like gold.) What a good mom you are (even if they like Dad better) :)

Definitely a perk! We enjoyed the circus, but I'm with you, those bags of cotton candy should have been studded with gold...considering the cost.

Looks like a fantastic time!!! I do love the circus too! Such cute kids! :) I love the picture of Baby sleeping.

Is the circus as good for people watching as the carnival is? I mean sure, they have animals, but sometimes the people, well they take the show!
