What to do when you don't have kids....







Sometimes not having kids has certain disadvantages. Like when you go to the zoo and there is no one to get excited about seeing a monkey for the first time. Or when you want an excuse to go get an ice cream cone and there are no little ones around to take the blame. Or when Christmas rolls around and the excitement level is lacking.

I came across another such time. The Donut Man is coming to our church tonight. I LOVE the Donut Man and think he is such a talented singer/songwriter. I used to watch and listen with my little brothers and sisters.

I am a brave person...but certainly not brave enough to walk into church without a child. Haha...that would just be weird. So, I sent "invitations" to at least 4 people I knew with kids. I figured if any of them took the bait I could just tag right along and no one at church would know the wiser. My infatuation with the Duncan the Singing Donut would be my little secret. Did it work? Nope...no one has heard of him. (insane I know)

But then to my rescue comes my friend Allyson who also does not have children! We are borrowing her 4 neices and proudly attending the performance tonight. I will be in charge of two and she will have the other two. The best part....they will have a ton of fun, I will get to enjoy the performance, their parents get a night off and then they go home!

you are not alone on this. The rest of your family know exactly who Duncan is. Amanda and Nicole grew up with the videos and we still talk about them and refer to some of the songs.

Oh yay! I didn't know the Donut Man was still around.

Am I missing out on Mr Donut? I have never heard of him. A Christian children's singer? I grew up with the Music Machine.

Hey Jane,
I will send you an e-mail...I think the boys would really like his stuff. :) He has been around for a long time but still has great performances and material.
