One of the exciting things about taking kids to things is the journey there and back. We got a taxi to the theatre and the overground back. This was very exciting (if slightly nerve wracking – there’s no responsibility quite like looking after someone else’s child). The boys liked it a lot and still had their snack boxes by the time we got out at our stop.
When I got home, my Mum said that she and my daughter had had a lovely, if repetitive, time. Apparently my daughter really likes a game where my mum waves a balloon round in circles and my daughter tries to dodge it, then hugs her when she gets hit with the balloon. So much that they did it about 47 times.
