Immy and Maddy did their first ever tap exam today. I don’t know who was more nervous, them or me. They have practiced hard though and Kelly believes they will do well. I know they will. They try so hard at everything they put their hand to. Knowing that didn’t stop the nerves though and everything seemed to be happening at once this morning.
The lady from FJ’s Dog Grooming came to clip Nelson and Missy (our two maltese terriers), there was hair and make up to be done for the exam and scrapbooking stuff to get ready for the school class this afternoon. My head was literally spinning! ( Imagine exorcist type spinning, with obligatory split pea soup ejecting from mouth). Add on top of this two overtired, cranky toddlers, who really, really want to get into the make up box and it was a sure fire recipe for disater! We couldn’t find a hair net.. a hair net people and I lost the plot entirely!(Imagine screaming banshee type image here). Oh I am so ashamed. Fancy ranting and raving over a hair net… calm blue ocean, calm blue ocean…breathe in and breathe out…
Anyway, we got there and the girls were great. I bought them a small box of chocolates and a lipgloss ( a very important accessory whe you are 11 years old) each. Partly because I was so proud of them and partly as an apology for my childishness. We won’t know the results for two weeks so I will have to keep you informed.
The babies are finally asleep, after having to keep them awake to go to the exam. I am feeling alot less stressed. I have had chocolate and hot tea, there is not a sign of any split pea soup around anywhere. There are only 36 days until we go away, the kids have informed me, or so they THINK they have informed me. Believe me I know. I started counting down way before they did!
