We have never left him with anybody before and there's not really anyone/place we'd feel comfortable leaving him. There are a couple of adults we know who'd love to have him and who he likes, but he's very uptight about being without us. Like, if we're at someone's house and he's having a good time, he'll explore and not worry about me. But, if I walk into another room away from him he doesn't like it at all.
This is a hard thing about the large age difference between our kids. It makes it harder to do a lot of things as a family. Dh and I both really wanted to be with Milo to see BMG bc we know it'll be really fun for him, but then what for Augie??? A night of freaking out and being sad, or having to sit through a concert he's not that into? Sigh... Hopefully he will like it. He might. I would think at least for a while it will be pretty interesting and there'll be lots to look at. An hour and 45 min is a little long for him, though. Otoh, if he loves it, we'll be really thrilled to have given him the experience, kwim? It's too bad it's a hundred dollar experiment, though.
Jessemoon, We saw a clip of the paper towels (though I thought it was TP?) online somewhere, and another one with some awesome looking huge parachute-type balls (like made out of a really light parachute-y fabric) that roll all over the audience. I'll try to find those this afternoon so they're fresh in his mind. I think he'll like that stuff if it doesn't scare him.
We're going to be up in the balcony pretty far from the stage, so I'm thinking that may help in terms of it being, for the most part, not in his face.
