Morning Challenges.

It was a 3 cup of coffee kind of a morning around these parts as the offspring threw challenges at me, and I batted them back with a vengeance.

Oh dear sweet caffeine! Is there anything you cannot assist me with? Clarity of thought. Instant energy. That feeling you get when you have 3 x espresso. I think they call it heart palpitations.

I broke the morning up into manageable chunks.

First up I had to seek out the gold, sequined vest that Jack has to wear today as part of some huge big dancing spectacular. This high big dancing spectacular has been all-consuming this week. With performances all over the shop, and an audition for some royal gala-type performance at the Opera House at the end of the year. It is a hard business, being a dance mum. At least with rugby, there is a bar involved.

If I never hear J-Lo’s LET”S GET LOUD again, I would be ok with that….

Vest was located. Another coffee was made.

Which was all very well and good, because then the big one ambled over to me, shoulder barged me and grunted….

“Do we have any coloured hairspray. It is crazy hair day today.”

And because I am not in the habit of buying coloured hairspray on a regular basis. I had to put my thinking hat on. And fast.

Horatio does not have much hair, but with my caffeine filled brain, I managed to come up with a solution to our problem.

I looked at that photo and thought “FUCK ARE THEY NITS?” But never fear. It is just a bucket of hairspray.

Oh looming bands! Is there anything you can’t do?

A morning running on adrenaline can tire a mum when the kids leave the house and you are left in silence. With your heart palpitating and your home dusted in gold sequins and small, colourful rubber bands. Most would take to the couch with a remote, but not me. I am off to Huffy Puffy to flog myself stupid, followed by a few hours of sitting in a hall, paying for the privilege of watching a gorgeous group of kids giving all they can with jazz hands and FOSSEY FOSSEY FOSSEY type movements. You know what, I might even join them up on stage.

Considering I know every part of that dance by now.

But I am more likely to just keep it all inside….

Anyone else put any fires out lately?
