Burn baby burn!

Tonight we went to a disco at Finn's kindy. I was all prepared for embarrassing silences, polite pleasantries with the other parents, grouchy kids, the Wiggles played by the "DJ" - but you know what? It was a triumph. A fiesta. A carnival. The "DJ" turned out to be a bloody real DJ, complete with strobe lights, lasers, smoke machine, the Macarena, Footloose, Ghostbusters and more. Finn danced and danced. We ate lots of yummy cakes and burgers. They had mystery envelopes you could buy for $2, $5 and $10. With my first envelope I got double tickets to the Lighthouse Petone. So I kept on going. I got: 2 Dominoes pizzas with garlic bread and drink, dinner at 2 Petone restaurants, a carwash, a film for the camera, bath lotion, 2 Lollipops entries, a $5 Animalz voucher and a partridge in a pear tree. I'm well pleased.

I just wish they'd have these discos every week. Kid friendly, loud, lots of junk for the adults to eat and fruit for the kids. Only thing lacking really was a nice glass of wine in hand. I've joined the committee so I can make it happen.

Yeah, apparently they haven't had one for a few years. I imagine it was a bit of a mission to organise, but well worth it. The kiddies were a rockin'.
