Being a Mom to 11 year old twins makes for a zany, unpredictable, yet richly rewarding life. Thank goodness for my wonderfully supportive hubby who keeps me grounded. I'm a writer, an editor and an online media professional. I write about pretty much anything that inspires me. I enjoy interviewing interesting people and sharing my thoughts on my family's experiences at various events and activities. I might also share a favorite recipe or two, particularly if it's something I've thrown together that turns out to be yummy! Outside of contributing to, you can also find me at and over at my blog

Diary of a Worm, a Spider and a Fly

Diary of a Worm, Spider and Fly - Dallas Children's Theater

They may be little, but they’re cool.  Bugs and insects rule!


Diary of a Worm, a Spider and a Fly is a stage adaptation of three children’s books written by Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss: “Diary of a Worm,” “Diary of a Spider,” and “Diary of a Fly.” The show opens at Dallas Children’s Theater on May 4th with a fun celebration and runs through June 3rd.

Bugs and insects rule in the diary of unlikely best friends Worm, Spider and Fly. Worm eats his homework, Fly believes she has superpowers and Spider can’t wait to grow up and molt.  Promoting eco-consciousness, earth science and tolerance of others, Diary of a Worm, a Spider and a Fly is a joyful, hip exploration of the world outside. With the addition of Bee, Ant and Butterfly, the show combines the best of the Arthropods with rap, hip-hop, ballads and boogie-woogie in a hot new musical that will have audiences wiggling in their seats to the beat.

It’s the first day of school and everyone wants to look cool.  Teacher Mrs. McBee assigns “All About Me” reports for homework.  Spider boasts about his magnificent legs, Fly is preparing to protect the planet, Butterfly looks forward to migrating to Mexico, and Ant shows off his strength.  Worm can’t stop himself from eating his assignments, but is that the real reason he won’t complete this one?  Will Fly get her own room away from 327 brothers and sisters, or find her superpowers in time to save Aunt Rita?  Why has Spider missed DAYS of school?  And who will be the lucky members of The Dirt Bag Club?  When Worm finally finds his confidence it’s a celebration of all the world’s little creatures, and their place and importance to the Earth!

Diary of a Worm, a Spider and Fly opens on Friday, May 4th at Dallas Children’s Theater with a party that features a few furry friends from the Dallas Zoo and complimentary appetizers and desserts from Purple Cow restaurant. Party begins at 6:30pm. Each family will also get one free show poster.

The show is playing weekends from May 4th – June 3rd. Tickets can be purchased online at the Dallas Children’s Theater website or by calling their box office at 214-740-0051.

The show is recommended for kids ages 4 and up.
