fran was good – bless here, probably the smallest child in it, if not the youngest, couldn’t quite resist waving at the audience but sung her heart out and remembered everything and was obviously enjoying doing a “show”. Its funny really because i’ve sort of tried to resist pushing them at the idea of “shows” because i didn’t want them to be channeled down the route that i loved, but i think its probably in Fran’s blood anyway because although i wouldn’t say she shone, she obviously wanted to shine. Bless anyway. They did a good job, made me ache for youth theatre again to be honest. I think i might have to start offering something for HE kids sometime, i do have an urge again and i never did. Funny how aspirations change, i’ll have to blog that sometime. Lol.
Other thing that made me laugh was the way she glowed when her heart-throb handed her her kite and said “And a special one for you.” Grin. Max and i have spent the week debating whether a clearly private school/horsey family owner of a Matilda would be more likely to own an Oliver or an Oscar.. turns out it was Oscar. Me and my assumptions… obviously i know nothing about them anyway… 😉
Had a lovely time with the younger 3 and Tammy and Sam – i think Ammi sees an ally in pickledom in Sam – could be interesting at camp this year. Debbie, boss could have a rival i think 😀
Carol – the answers i’ve discovered are… green poo equals too much foremilk which is apparently commonly a problem if you feed from both sides for shorter times. Foremilk produces wind, and more frequent feeds as they don’t get the calories of the hindmilk. Well, that is the potted version – anyway, checking for decent latches and feeding until they won’t have anymore at all from one side is the key. Josie only feeds from one side per feed now and its totally solved the problem. In fact, the other night was the first time ever that Josie refused a side and then went on to the other side for a continuation of a feed. Anyway, this article is pretty good.
Amanda, i WILL type up an answer tonight, right now i’m off to plant vegetables!
