The kids and I went to see Where the Wild Things Are in Harvard Square tonight. We met our friend and summer day care teacher and former middle school math teacher for dinner before hand and went to the special showing and talk for Harvard Alumni and guests. It was nice to be the guests. I loved the movie, as did about half the audience according to our informal show of hands poll. So did the kids. As one of the panelists said, though, give it ten minutes, an hour, a night of sleep and dreams, a couple of days, a week, ten days out, and take your temperature then.

For now, I will leave it at that. Kids are in bed way too late for a school night, but hey, don’t do these things every day. It was fun, they thanked me, we were out on the town in a movie theater, in Harvard Square, in the Science Center, in a lecture hall full of people who knew a lot about Maurice Sendak, Children’s Literature, Film, lots of things, and we had fun, held our own. More work tomorrow.
