The Day of the Shut Up

Motivated by the amazing time the kids had in music class two weeks ago, I decided to try to go to three music classes last week. Much to my and the kids’ dismay, none took place due to the summer.

The worst day was when I took the kids to Teddington (which I heard was a very nice one from a mom I talked to at the Twickenham class). Took us 30 min to get there and since we were 15 min late, me being my cheap self, decided to wait until the next class at 11. To our utter disappointment, the 10am was just letting out, but we then found out that the 11am session was not taking place!
On the way back, Rhys was being very fussy in the bus. After the cheese puffs were all gone, Rhys lost it and was crying. Someone on the bus kept yelling “shut up, shut up!” Ack!
