What I thought would be disastrous turned out to be easy and pleasant: taking the twins out for a night at the theatre. And not just to watch any old actor; Elektra and Keanu got to watch big bro Kingsley perform on stage at the Coogee Public Annual Concert.
Singing and dancing to Xtina Aguilera’s “carwash” Kingsley and his KP friends wore their overalls, gel in their hair, waving their arms. I became screechy from pride. Elektra bum danced to all the songs. Keanu watched with a quietude we’ve come to recognise as his endearing trait.
Neither baby so much as said boo throughout the hour long performance making Erroll and I actually consider taking them to watch a movie with us one day.
