I also read 'Wombat Walkabout' aloud and my children acted it out. It was a lot of fun and many people came up to us afterwards and told us how much they enjoyed our little show. I love, love, love having a big family and being able to do stuff like this with our family.
The book is set in Australia and is about six little wombats going walkabout and their adventures. The thing is I only had five little wombats to go walkabout but we used a doll to represent our sixth little wombat. We used Theodore's Baby Eva doll. It was ok (ish). I guess I just wish that one, just one, person came up to me afterwards and said that they thought about and realized our sixth little wombat was missing.
It's the small things that get me. I still enjoyed the other shows and the chili and the pie and the visiting with people but she's just always missing and it would be so nice if someone else missed her presence too.
I'm trying to not have expectations but it's hard. The things we hope for. Like people remembering our children.
