Music and maddness
I took the kids to a MAC concert today. I am always amazed at how people have children who will actually sit still. Yes, some peoples children will wiggle or wander a bit, but mine... dear me, they can not be still or even just a little wiggly. They climbed the seating area (it was outside in a sort of man made seating area with grass and block), the jumped from block to block, Rowan fell after slipping on a blanket and almost knocked his head in, they teetered precariously on the edge of the blocks that dropped down a good 4 or so feet on to people sitting below, they dug huge divots in the grass leaving nice big holes, they talked non-stop and ran around almost constantly. Now, yes the place was 90% older people and 9% disabled people and maybe 1% families, but the other people with kids there, they just were still, or they walked around. And honestly the minute we got there and sat down the boys wanted food and complained bitterly that I had left lunch in the van for when we got to the park about an hour later. Not exactly the most relaxing hour I have spent. Thankfully we had friends there to at least distract me from the insanity.
