About this blog: I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, home cook, marathon runner, and PhD. I recently moved to the Silicon Valley after completing my PhD in Social Psychology and becoming a mother one month apart. Before that, I ran seven marathons including Chicago and Boston. Exercise is an integral part of my life. I hope to one day go back to long distance running and tackle the New York City Marathon. Right now I run after my one year old son. Although I am a stay-at-home mom, we are rarely "at home." My mom also stayed at home with my brother and me. She warned me that, although rewarding, it can be isolating. So, with her help, I learned the importance of getting out into the community and meeting other mothers. On the rare occasion when I am at home and have a hand or two free, I squeeze in time to scrapbook. As a new mom, many challenges are thrown my way. I hope my opinions, triumphs, and struggles help experienced parents reminisce, new parents cope, and parents-to-be get an honest glimpse of what the first years of motherhood can entail. (Hide)

When we were returning books at the library, my daughter saw a poster for the Dance Repertory Theatre’s production of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
. She thought the ballerinas looked beautiful and asked to go to the performance. I told her I would look into it, but assumed the performance would not be age appropriate. Was I wrong.
After checking out their website, I realized that this performance was made especially for families with young kids. It was also close by and there were still tickets available. How could I say no.
We ended up seeing the performance yesterday and I am so happy we did. It was such a wonderful and festive way to spend the afternoon. The dancers clearly worked hard, everyone was extremely welcoming, and they put together a great holiday show. Our girls especially enjoyed seeing Santa, Rudolph and all of the little kids having a great time on stage.
If you have young kids, this is a fun show to go to and celebrate the holiday season.
