Yesterday we went to see Beauty and the Beast. The pantomime! My niece was on stage as one of the dancers. She was ace, very good and acted really great. Jessica amazed me with her impeccable behaviour. She sat through it all- moving mostly, on my knee, her chair, standing on her chair, standing in front of me, sitting on my knees again. But happy and content. There was no tears nor boredom. She was amazed by the fairy and the lights and the dancing. She got afraid when he turned into the beast and when there was a sword fight. She clung on to me not wanting to turn and watch but unable not to. 🙂 she looked into my eyes and giggled, she gave me hugs. It was an amazing mum/daughter day and a fab way to create a new tradition.
