So we decided that we would sing anyway, and invited all our friends to join us! We hired the local community centre and sang lots of songs, played lots of instruments and had great fun with the Grooving Toddlers' animal masks for "Old Macdonald". Nathaniel was good as gold and played happily all the way through and didn't require any attention at all! Even when he banged his chin on the instrument box, he stopped crying when I picked him up, and by the end of "Here we go round the mulberry bush", there was not a tear in sight!
Now all we have to do is to come up with some fun props that we can create for next week that won't cost money!
I'm afraid that there are no photos to accompany this, but lest we disappoint you all, here are some of Nathaniel and a friend playing later that day. Some babies' names have been changed to protect their identity.
