On the red carpet
Little Missy has been asking us to also go to a musical event. She gets very upset when she sees that we have been to a show and that she was not there.
I took her along to an Afrikaans music show on Friday. I thought that she would enjoy it, especially since she is always complaining that "hulle praat nie my taal nie" (they do not speak my language). We are being asked to translate the English songs playing on the radio.
She loved it! But sitting quietly for one and half hours is not a strong point yet!
It was an exercise in patience and "shhh..." on my side. Especially when she asked whether the artist is a boy or a girl. Very loud!
She was also very interested in the artist in the wheelchair, and why are his legs not working?
I was thankful for a packet of sweets and chewing gum in my bag. Next time I will remember to bring water along as well. I had to distract her for longer than an hour because she was thirsty! (She had a drink just before the show).
I also had to dislodge chewing gum from her fingers, and mine, when she was finished with it. I ended up chewing the gum, and dislodged another piece of a tooth which needs to be fixed now!
I breathed a huge sign of relief when the show ended!
We will be going to more shows! But next time we will be sitting in the corner, near the isles, and not in the middle of the theatre!
