A Nativity Play Review
Have you ever tried to keep a four year old from disturbing his older brothers School Nativity play ?
I have and it's not easy. It is easier though than trying to keep a 3 year old from spoiling his sisters school nativity play as the woman in the row in front of me found out to her peril.
"LOOK ITS A PIRATE!" points and shouts at man in strange hat looking for a seat
"WHERE'S CAMILLA?" shouted after the first act.
"THAT'S NOT CAMILLA !" shouted at the beginning of the third act
"I WANT TO DANCE, LETS GO UP AND DANCE"
"I WANT TO GO UP AND DANCE"
"LET GO OF ME, I WANT TO DANCE"
"CAMILLA ! ! !"
"Where's She Goiiiiiiinn' ?"
And so on and so forth, until he began crying really loudly and his teenage sister hissed "Just take him out for gods sake !!!"
Which his mother reluctantly did.
I on the other hand only had to deal with one excitedly shouted outburst "YOU HAVE TO LAUGH NOW!!!" when every one laughed at the first joke. After that it was all whispers "You have to clap now"
"Can we go now?"
" Ok, after he's been on we're going, right?"
There was some rolling around on the floor under the seat and a futile escape attempt curbed by his mother but over all I have to say he behaved quite well.
As for his brothers performance as one of the 12 drummers drumming, it was great, all 6 minutes of it !
