Cultured boy!

Yesterday Owen had his first trip to the theatre.  We went to see Peppa Pig, the live stage show.  I was slightly concerned how an 8 month old wee boy would take to the theatre but he totally loved it!

As usual I had free tickets as I was writing a review so we had really good seats, we also got spoilt rotten in the interval!  We had exclusive use of the stalls bar with Owen getting free ice cream from lovely Joyce – which he also loved, although it was cold, don’t you know?!

Now I’m not saying he sat still right through the performance, he spent most of the time either standing on my lap or sitting on my hand on the arm of the chair!  But he watched most of the show, with just a few distractions of other children playing with their fibre optic light stick toys from the merchandise stand.  We had taken his George toy (that’s Peppa’s brother for those of you who are out of the loop) and he cuddled/sucked that for some of the time.

By the end of the show he was grinning like a loon, although so obviously fighting sleep as he’s not used to being out that late (yes folks it was after 5pm when it finished!).  Luckily nursery had been really helpful and given him his afternoon nap early so he was fresh and ready for the 4pm show but he was asleep almost as soon as I put him in the car seat when Daddy picked us up afterwards.

Theatre funs is tiring

All in all his first theatre trip was a great success and the way he smiled at me at the end, clapping his hands, I could tell he was saying “thank you Mummy, that was AWESOME”!  Just hope I can keep him away from all the merchandise now, he could end up bankrupting us and turning our house pink!!
