Thursday morning as I packed up the car I filled Carter in on the plans. He was so excited and just couldn't wait. He kept talking about going to see the movie so I explained to him multiple times that it would be real people on a stage, not on a screen. He still referred to it as a movie, but whatever. The whole drive to the theater that evening Carter kept talking about how excited he was and how he couldn't wait to see The Grinch. I wasn't even sure the Grinch would be in the show, so I tried sharing that one gently. While we were sitting, waiting for the show to start I pointed Bo out in the orchestra pit and Carter thought that was awesome. Then he turned around to the people behind him and started up a conversation. He introduced himself and stated his age. Then he introduced me and asked me to tell them how old I am. It was pretty funny. Once the show started Carter was in awe. The Grinch came out onto stage during the first song and Carter was ecstatic. He kept pointing while yelling, "It's the GRINCH! Mommy, it's the Grinch!" Part way through the first act he said he was tired, but he still clapped very enthusiastically after each song. At intermission he said he was tired again and I asked him if he wanted to go home. He asked if everyone else was going home and I told him that they would be staying for the second half of the show to which he replied, "Well, then I want to stay."
