We were kind of in the nose-bleed section, but who cares because the tickets were dirt cheap and the girls didn't know the difference. This was my first time seeing Ballet West and now I understand why they are so acclaimed. They were fantastic! They had two of their male dancers play the stepsisters and they stole the show. Nothing better than a guy in drag! They were so funny and stayed in character even in the encore.
The only problem is that Hailey and Lauren weren't feeling well. Last night they both ran a very mild fever. They really had no other symptoms, but I told them all morning that they should probably stay home. They have been looking forward to the ballet for a long time and they INSISTED that I let them go. I dosed them with ibuprofen and prayed that they would be okay during the show. Halfway in Hailey went limp and laid down in her seat. She was burning with fever and her throat was so swollen. At this moment she is at Instacare with Cody and I'm pretty sure it's strep. Good thing strep isn't an airborne germ so I'm sure she didn't infect anyone else (mainly carried through the saliva), but I probably should have followed my gut instinct and made her stay home. The stinker was just too convincing this morning!
