Annie

26m When I found out that I was pregnant with a girl, there were certain things that I couldn't wait to introduce to my daughter.  So, for Sydney's 1st Christmas, I bought her the movie version of "Annie" that I saw as a child even though she was too young for it.  I couldn't wait to show it to her. Now, I'm entering the season of life when my daughter and I are beginning to have real conversation and I am introducing her to these things that I loved as a girl.  To be honest, I want to freeze Sydney's age - 3 years and 7 months.  Last night, Sydney and and I saw the traveling Broadway show of "Annie" in Savannah.  Sydney loved it!  She would clap with the audience when they would and she really liked the opera glasses our friends brought with them.  When Annie wasn't in a particular scene, Syd would ask me, "Where's Annie?"  It was a good 2 and a half hours and she did great through the whole thing. I got choked up sitting there listening to "Tomorrow"  thinking about when I was about 11 and hearing that song for the 1st time at the movies.  I got the record (yes, vinyl!) of the movie (the days before the DVD release!) as well as a magazine with all the inside information on the movie.  I memorized every word!  So this morning, Sydney and I are sitting on our couch watch "Annie" together and talking about the show last night. Annie still rocks!
