Stomping – Mon 15th Dec 2014

By | December 15, 2014

The title of tonight’s blog is deceptive, yes, there’s been “stomping” but it’s been of the fun kind, singing (and stomping in the last verse) along to “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”. D was so enthusiastic, she stomped on Hubbie’s foot…whoops!

The carol concert at D’s school is always a lot of fun with plenty of jingle-y instruments to accompany the songs, a brass band playing and a Christmas story read by the HT.

Last year D was meant to be singing in a group on stage and nerves completely overcame her….this year she sang “White Christmas” as part of a trio and did brilliantly! Our not-so-little girl has progressed so much in the right setting for her.

We’ve all got slightly hoarse voices from singing along. Even T in the last song.

I’ve had my head held on to and turned to look at things, my hair fuzzed up when she got reckless and my necklace twisted until it was half the size, all little things that enabled D to stay right until the end – and then of course both her and T wanted to come straight home, no mince pies for Hubbie!

It’s always a highlight of the last week of term to go to the concert, made more special this evening with D’s performance.

It’s been a good (if long) day.

Glitter ended up on the Playmobil nativity yesterday, just lounging around:

And today she landed on D’s 2014 calendar (which D found very funny):

I hope everyone’s day has gone well Jx

I’m so glad it went well for you, even with the head pulling. I’m part of that club! I’m glad D took part in her singing. It sounds like a great evening even if you did leave rather quickly lol

Indeed, it would have been great to stay but…hey ho, one year 🙂

I particularly love these annual Christmas shows – you get to see how much your kids have grown and developed since the last one. I always feel completely nostalgic. The kids despair of me!
