The kids begged me to go to the talent show that was scheduled for that evening. It was taking place at my oldest daughter’s school and the line-up of acts included many of her friends. I admit I really didn’t want to go because these kinds of events often start at about the time I am normally tucking my youngest one into bed. My kids go to bed fairly early and I like that, they need their sleep and I need the downtime. Seeing their eager faces and remembering the excitement of my own school’s show I reluctantly agreed.
