This morning we went to the Unicorn Theatre to see Seesaw, a play designed for 2+ years old children all about the ups and downs of friendship. Emilia was captivated by what was going on on stage, a big sandpit with a wooden seesaw, and from the very first moment to the last one she was very focussed and with her eyes glued to the actors. It was interesting to see all the different reactions from the other kids, some were scared, some cried and had to leave, while others were very chatty and happy. At the end of the show kids were allowed to go and play in the sandpit, Emilia was a bit hesitant at first but then she took a little trip with Rob. When we got back home she talked and talked about all the kids she saw at the teatro (tanti bambini), the sand she played with, which is like the sabbia she played with at the mare in Italy with nonna Patty, and the rabbit, one of the characters on stage. Rob and I found the plot a bit too simple and were not really impressed but Emilia loved it and this is really what counts!
