School Christmas Show


My Mum came with me to see the boys in the show, and we took Georgie and Fred with us. Hubby is going tomorrow so that they have someone in the audience both days. I have been worried about this show for the last few weeks. With Jack being in trouble there was a very strong chance that he wasn't going to get to be part of it! But fortunately he managed to pull himself together enough to get to be a narrator "No. 3 of 6".

Tom had landed the roll of one of the Wise Men (or King, if you prefer), just like Jack did in his first year. He was very proud of this! He has been practicing his "camel walk" for ages, and singing the shows songs day and night. He's such a little showman (read Diva) and I imagine he will get nice parts in school shows as he gets older - if he doesn't get attacks of shyness which he does from time to time. He would certainly do well in the choir if he felt to shy to take on a big part.

The show was a good one, much the same as in previous years. Two children go on an adventure to Santa's grotto and meet the toys (last year Jack was a toy robot), then meet the Christmas Star who tells them the Nativity Story (cue Tom as a Wise Man).

Jack did a great job as a narrator - I got some of it on camera, but my camera is a bit rubbish and hardly picked him up. He spoke very clearly, and without shouting. But because he didn't shout the mic didn't pick him up well from the back of the Hall. I managed to get a bit of Tom singing one of the songs he had been practicing the hardest, and of cause I got him and his fellow Wise Men walking to meet Baby Jesus. You could tell he had put some real thought into it, lol... In fact a few people came to see me afterwards and commented on Tom's Camel Walk! Hee hee...


I was very proud of them both. They did a great job. Next year they wont be in the same show because Jack will be in Juniors (KS2) who do a Christmas Concert instead, and Tom will still be in Infants (KS1). We'll also probably have Georgie's Nursery Christmas Show to go to too!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
