Life and work are seamless at the moment.
I could be changing a nappy at home or teaching how to change a nappy at work. I could be bobbing a baby at 2am or discussing birth at 2pm. I could be folding baby clothes in the kitchen or watching the actors juggle them whilst singing. It is week one of rehearsals for the tour of Kicking and Screaming (Tangled Feet’s show about becoming a parent) and week 5 of my new daughters life!
The story of Kicking and Screaming follows two couples as they grapple life with a baby from the birth to their first birthday. Its comic, tragic, a bit mushy and very musical and this is just like having a child! There are times when my tiny little daughter will make me laugh hard as she scares herself with her wind. Times (mostly at 4am-5am) when it’s desperate, exhausting and tear inducing! And times (lots and lots of times!) when I can be found singing Frere Jacques or Wind the Bobbin up on repeat.
