Today Addy and I went to an audience participation play of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" at a local theater. This girl loves to perform at home but I was unsure of how interested she would be in participating when we were in the theater. (She turns 4 on Tuesday.)
We arrived early (something I have found helps my kids tremendously when trying something new) and she was very reserved. The director came out and mentioned they had some young kids cry when the Wicked Witch came out at previous performances and asked if we would like to meet the actress ahead of time. We met Lorraine (the actress) who showed Addy her painted skin and pulled up her sleeve to show Addy her regular skin color past her sleeve. I really appreciated the extra effort.
As the show began Addy chose to sit on my lap but once it began she slid down onto the floor cushions that were there for the kids. Then they asked who wanted to help Aunt Em feed the chickens....and she raised her hand! She was also chosen to be a cornstalk with the Scarecrow and an Ozian in Oz.
We had a great time!

My Ruby Slippers have arrived! 👠👠 (Bows not yet attached) I've wanted to dress up as Dorothy for longer than I can say, and now that I've gotten into cosplay I decided it's time to just go for it. I swear it's a coincidence that the next convention I want to go to is the Emerald City Comicon but sometimes things just work out 😊 #WizardofOz#DorothyGale#rubyslippers#cosplaywip#shoes#theresnoplacelikehome
My favorite movie 🎥 👠👠🌪💫🌈. * Ruby slippers = the unique beauty and power inside each of us. *. Wicked Witch = self doubt, anxiety, depression * Glenda the good witch = the healthy, powerful, magnificent strength inside each of us * This is what life is like when you have anxiety and depression. You know the wicked witch will come back and will try to take your ruby slippers again and again. Remind yourself over and over that you have the power within to fight the darkness...and the wicked witch. Keeping a bucket of water nearby helps too. #wizardofoz#anxiety#depression#rubyslippers#atx#selfcompassion#rememberwhoyouare
