So, roles have been cast for our school nativities, and... we're all shepherds again!
I'm not sure what it is about my boys - maybe they look a bit rough around the edges - but between Gabriel, Flynn and Theo we've had a shepherd up on the stage for the past six years.
Two years ago we were all very excited when Flynn was asked to be the Angel Gabriel in his reception nativity (back in the days when he happily wore a dress). Bless him, he did so well, though he yelled out his lines rather aggressively for an angel (at least he livened up proceedings). This year he's back in his comfort zone with a tea towel on his head.
On the plus side, I'm not one of those amazing mums who hand make nativity costumes for their darlings so this repeat casting is saving me a fortune on ASDA outfits....
