So today was Milly’s 1st ever little Christmas concert and I was so proud of her she absolutely smashed it. When I say concert I mean a small group of little children kind of singing songs they learnt at playgroup. I honestly haven’t heard of most of them apart from twinkle twinkle little star, we wish you a merry Christmas and When Santa got Stuck up the Chimney but the others I had no clue.
So we was supposed to practise these songs that I have never heard of before and didn’t know the tune to, Milly had to teach me the songs. Obviously I had a sheet with the songs on but it didn’t really help as I had no clue on the tune. One I taught Milly completely wrong but luckily she listened to her playgroup teachers and not me. 😂😂
I wasn’t allowed to film her or take photo’s because of safeguarding which I do understand it’s just a shame as we could have shown her other family members how amazing she did.
Honestly the little girl who started playgroup in February who spoke to nobody at all was non existent today she was the star of the show and we couldn’t have been prouder I haven’t smiled like that since Lee’s surprise proposal at Disney world and even then I’m not sure it was as big as today. I was honestly so proud I could of burst.
I think it has been a few different things that have helped her confidence growing but I do think it is massively down to her joining Starlighter Academy because her confidence has just grown especially when it comes to singing and dancing she excels.
Yes her speech is delayed and her words aren’t always clear but we are working on that but she loved every second of today and right now that is all I care about.
I’m going to share the lyrics of the songs they sang today and you tell me if you have heard of any of them.
Sprinkle on the sugar,
Sprinkle on the Sugar,
Eat the lot,
Eat the lot!
(tune apparently Frere Jacques. I can confirm it wasn’t)
When The Robots Came To Dinner
When the robots came to dinner,
they came on Christmas day,
they didn’t like the Turkey,
so they threw it all away.
They ate up all the knives and forks,
and then they asked for more,
Iv’e never known a Christmas Dinner
quite like this before!
(Tune: the grand old duke of York)
Little Robin Redbreast
Little Robin Redbreast sat upon a rail,
Niddle Noddle went his head and waggle went his tail!
Niddle Noddle went his head and waggle went his tail,
as Little Robin Redbreast sat upon a rail.
(Tune: I had a little nut tree) I mean I have never heard of that song either
Anyway I tried, I did my best to learn the songs and now I have them stuck in my mind permanently. Milly had the best time this morning and to me that means I did my job right for once.
That’s all for today. Let me know if you had heard of any of those songs in the comments below.
