Last night was my daughter's final ballet performance of the season. Even with more atrocious weather we made it to Thalia Mara Hall with dancer, costume, ballet shoes, make up, and hair gel. I did forget the tickets, but called the Director from the car and he fixed it for me. My husband, his mother, my son, my sister, her son and daughter, and her husband also made it to the performance.
I stayed back stage with the Princess(No, I am not one of those pushy backstage moms, just a friendly face in the sea of chaos). My husband was supposed to video the performance. He did, only he didn't video our child for over half of the dance. What is with that? How can he not know his own child? He has lived with us these past six years. He delivered this child and yet he could not pick her out of 12 girls. He even did close ups of the other child. He zoomed in for 2 or 3 minutes and still did not notice that she did not even resemble Princess. I don't get how that could happen. I know the spirit of the child, the movement, and the detail. I could never mistake another for my own and cannot understand how he could. What is with that?
