I braved an outing with all three kids alone to the ballet. I thought it was crazy myself, but Leoni really wanted to go. Katara had a Russian ballet school performing a special version of the Nutcracker for children, which was just over an hour long. It is traditionally Christmas-y, but not being a Christmas celebrating culture, October seemed right I suppose. I didn't know what I would do if we had a meltdown, crying, etc. because my kids are too young to leave alone while I take another out. I was surprised at how well they did, especially when there were 15+ kids running up and down the aisles right next to us.
