The Peanut Gallery

The world is a stage, according to Shakespeare and my twinnies.

Katie and Bethie love to perform. In the mall, in the park, in the grocery store. If there is an audience, they will put on a show.

Katie would like Dan to build a stage for her ... on our front lawn. She envisions herself entertaining the neighbours as they walk pass our house, heading to and from the bus stop. Bethie thinks it would be super to decorate this stage with Christmas lights, so it will look fancy. Much to Dan's relief, I have refused to build a stage on my front lawn.

So Katie and Bethie are left to performing in their usual locales. Recently, they did a recital on the stairs...
Bethie was singing, Katie was conducting.

This was all very well and good, but they needed an audience. Dan and I were too busy, so they had to make do...


Their bears weren't appreciative enough. They didn't clap and cheer and tell the twinnies how clever they are.

Another audience member was required. One that would sit and watch performance after performance, whether she wanted to or not.

Thank God, we had another child...

Now I understand how my grandmother must have felt when we would plunk her on a lawn chair and do performance after performance on the front step. LOL
