Wicked is coming to Tempe. I am excited but I'm running into some major roadblocks.
The biggest and most major is explained by a conversation I had with my sister this morning over AIM:
Me: Wicked is coming to Tempe and I want to go and Tyler is only halfway supportive, so figuring out a way to go has been tricky
Nora won't take a bottle
we tried yesterday and when I finally went upstairs, I saw that her face was beet red and she was screaming, she was so mad [she was about to start vomiting fire all over Tyler, she was that mad]
that was formula though, I think I'll try again with breast milk, and if that doesn't work, I'll have to give up
Sister: well I know how that goes all too well
Me: so, If we can't get her to take breast milk, then it doesn't matter if Tyler will watch the kids for a Saturday or not
Sister: yes, that doesn't matter
If I can't get her to take a bottle, the only other plan is extremely convoluted and involves going on our way back from Utah while Tyler and the kids hang out at Hottomily's house. That way, I could see a 7:30 show and would only miss one feeding, instead of 4 or so. This way, we'd probably have to spend the night, which Hottomily said, preliminarily, would be fine. I worry about Lillian, though. We all know how well she does not sleeping in her bed.
Here are the numbers:
The show is running July 1-26 in Tempe which is roughly 100 miles north from where I live. There is a 7:30 show every night and on weekends, there's a 2:00 matinee.
We are beginning our trek to Idaho via Utah on July 1st and returning July 7th or 8th, depending on how it goes.
We will be driving right past Tempe when we drive back (and when we drive up, but we'll be driving past at like 4 AM, which is no good to me.)
Can anyone figure this out for me? And, does anyone want to go with me? (I asked my husband and he said he's only interested 2.5 out of 10. I think that means he doesn't want to go.)
