On Sunday I was feeling a little lethargic and suggested to my 8-year-old that we just hang out at home.
“But we’re going to the AGO; it’s Family Day,” she said. And out came the tears. Well, technically it was Maharaja Family Sunday, but I wasn’t going to argue.
So we went.
She joined in the Kathak dance demonstration in Walker Court and waved to us when the gaggle of kids walked around in their ‘royal procession’.
We took a quick turn through the Maharaja exhibition, noticing paintings we hadn’t before.
She designed and coloured an elephant while my husband and I took turns looking at the Frum Collection of African Art for the first time.
Eventually, we checked in on the line full of little children waiting patiently to have mehndi put on their hands in ShopAGO. Sure, there was a lot we didn’t see on this visit. But the kid danced, coloured, saw art and left without a single whine. Success!
