With nearly twelve years of parenthood under my belt I've being trying to think outside of the box on how to celebrate the holiday season with super fun social venues. There's only so many times you can have breakfast with Santa before you swear off lukewarm pancakes from a buffet, forever. As much as I adore all of our past holiday memories, the kids are growing older and it's time to make some new memories. We made a list and are in the process of knocking things off; and, at the same time we are adding more!


This weekend we bought tickets for "Elf Wanted" by ComedySportz.

There's only one show per week - Sunday's at 7pm - which actually worked perfectly with our hectic schedules. We zoomed into the city without any traffic and found street parking (free on Sundays) in abundance around the theatre. Our party of ten took four cars and all had no problems. The only downfall with our party of five was that my kiddos spent the entire day asking when it was time for them to see A REAL LIVE COMEDY SHOW like they saw on America's Got Talent over the summer on tv. They. Were. Excited. 



Chicago is home to so many comedy venues but few are appropriate for kids, so I called in advance to make sure it was "all ages" like I read online. I was rest assured being told that it was "all ages, to a point" because my six-year-old has a better sense of potty mouth humor than my eleven-year-old. Hashtag third child. My children were very amused throughout the entire one-hour show although I sensed that the cast was improvising their vocabulary a little because they had a kid audience in the front row.

For example, Lola volunteered to come on stage as an extra. She was supposed to be "hypnotized" by an actor as he said FART FART FART YOU ARE GROWING SLEEPY FART FART FART. And my three kiddos busted out in laughter. It was the funniest thing ever to see them on the ground laughing and a new inside joke was born in our family. Yes. They did all fall asleep tonight to me saying FART FART FART YOU ARE GROWING SLEEPY. And they fell asleep laughing!

 Laughter is good for the soul.

Tickets were only $10 so I invited my parents, brother, aunt and uncle to accompany us to our very first family comedy show. I'm so glad I did. It wasn't a broadway show but we all (ages 6 to 60+) found ourselves laughing.  It was a very nice change of pace for our growing family and I'm happy I took a leap of faith to think outside of the box. New memories, made!
