A few weeks ago, we took Mayana to her second Colin Buchanan concert. At the first, she was about 8 months old, and mesmerised by the music and the lights. This time, she got entirely overwhelmed for the first two songs, and sat snuggle into my neck, while sneaking peaks of the stage every now and again.
It wasn’t long though before Mayana started to notice that Colin is funny, and that she recognised some of his songs. By the end, she was down the front with all the kids, trying to climb onto the stage and get in on all the action. It was a lot of fun to watch her, and a lot of fun to watch Colin. If you ever get the chance to go to one of his children’s concerts, do it. He’s a great entertainer, for the adults as well as the kids!
Mayana asked us if we could line up and meat Colin, and so we did. For a very. long. time. In fact, we were the second last people in line. It was a little ridiculous. But kinda worth it in the end, when Colin wrote a special message in the book we’d bought her, and gave her a big cuddle and posed for a photo. She’s still talking about it, and loves looking at the picture of the flower and bee that he drew in her book.
