Get em while they are young

We took Drew to see the Doodlebops this weekend. For those who don't know who the Doodlebops are - they are the Rock group for the very hip PreK age. What an expensive afternoon. First tickets for 3 were 120.00 (not including Ticketmasters usual and customary handling fees.)
Drew was so excited. We got to our seats and I go to peruse the merchandise and food. I got off lucky (cheap). I bought one shirt 25.00 (even Talbots is cheaper) one light up toy (that all other the kids had) 20.00 and one program 12.00 (but it came with a free Kazoo!!!)
I skipped the food and went back to our seats. The show started and Drew had a great time dancing in the aisle. No mini mosh pit like at a Mr. StinkyFeet concert. But dancing works up a hunger so off Scott went in search of noursishment. He comes back with some cotton candy 10.00 (it did have a felt hat to hold the plastic bag in) and a non Doodlebop soda 3.50. Lemonade ina Doodlebop cup was 8.00. Drew did not get lemonade.
The concert started at 1 with 30 minute intermission and ened at about 2:45. I haven't done the math but it was over a 1.00 per minute for the concert. If this were a Mastercard commercial I would say priceless but since it is not i can say OVERPRICED.
It is going to be cheaper for Scott and I to go to the Blue Man Group the end of the month. I learned my lesson. While this was fun - Drew would have had just as much fun going to grandma's house, eating Tortilla Jacks and watching the KU game. AND it would have been much cheaper.
