Ben and I started the morning with great enthusiasm and excitement. Today was the day of the Play School Concert. We couldn’t wait!! Well…. It didn’t exactly stay that way or go to plan. We made sure we arrived in plenty of time to get a good possie. We ended up with front row seats which I thought was going to be excellent. We had front row seats last time we saw Play School. The shows storyline saw the presenters take Big Ted, Little Ted and Jemina through adventures on their way to Humpty’s house for a picnic. I was sooooooo excited that the presenters were Alex Papps and Abi Tucker. Alex is my all time favorite presenter!! Ben thinks he is pretty cool as well (heheheh). When the concert began it didn’t take long for Ben to cover his ears and cling to me for dear life. It was a little loud but I thought he would relax as the show continued. During one of the songs Alex came down from the stage dressed as a monkey and pretended to steal my bag. I think he was trying to get Ben to smile. I thought this was cute and my heart skipped a beat as I have a tiny crush on Alex ………….but Ben was not impressed and began to cry telling him to ‘give his mummy’s bag back’. Ben didn’t really recover from this although I think I did see a brief smile at one point. Ben continued to complain about the noise and sat in my lap with his bunnies over his ears. I thought it best to move away from the front and head towards the back. But still Ben was not impressed. It was time to leave! I was gutted that we had to leave before we got to Humpty’s picnic!! Once Ben and I left the auditorium Ben gave me a big smile and said ‘Bust My Buffers it was loud’. My heartbreak over Humpty was gone and I gave my little man a great big hug! Maybe next time we will sit right at the back!!!

Lordy, lordy, lordy, I am not sure who I fell bad for most – Ben for not enjoying the show or B for your crush on Alex Papps, shame on you. Get a pen, write this down and put on the fridge, ‘Crushes on preschool presenters – NOT COOL’ and every time you think of Alex I want you to take a good, hard look at a picture of George Clooney, Gerard Butler or even Johnny Depp. As someone who cares about you, I had to intervene, hehe.

Tam that is hilarious!! But you know I am a lost cause!!!
I’m keeping out of this one!
