In October we discovered that Peppa Pig live was going to be visiting Clacton as part of it’s tour. Growing up I used to go to the theatre and I would love to be able to share this with Ethan. Knowing that the theatre would be full of little children we decided to book tickets. We thought it would be a perfect way to have some Ethan time whilst nanny looked after Little E for us.
I didn’t tell Ethan we were going until we were about to leave. I had the flyer and showed him it saying we are going to see Peppa Pig.
When we arrived it was very noisy with lots of excited children. Ethan clung to us, his anxiety levels showing more and more since the soft play incident. Any unexpected noise from a child making him jump sky high.
I had carefully picked our seats so that we were on the end of the row at the side. Close enough that Ethan would be engaged with the show. This gave us a way to leave if it all got too much for Ethan without disturbing anyone.
Ethan was very nervous looking around at all the children so we got him a flashing spinner to keep him entertained. Got to love a spinning, flashing thing!
