That's A Wrap

After all the rehearsals, all the long evenings and seven - count 'em seven - performances, the curtain closed on Mia and Beth's play last night. It was an incredible experience for both of them...and for Owen and I.

While Beth and Mia were out rehearsing, Owen and I got to spend some quality time together. Okay, the quality was sometimes an arguable point. I'll admit to being a bit more lenient with the TV rules and together we attacked quite a few levels of Lego stormtroopers. But we hung out together. And that was cool.

Beth and Mia also seemed to have had a pretty incredible experience. They met new people and did new things. We learned pretty quickly that while Beth is always smoking hot, a yellow paisley dress presents a challenge even to the hottest. We also learned that Mia doesn't understand the concept of stage fright nor did she ever come close to exhibiting it. They were both brilliant and I've never been a prouder husband or dad than I was sitting in a random middle school for four performance watching them on stage.

Among the cast and crew, there's apparently some desire to get me on the stage. It's not going to happen. You'll never find me acting in a play, singing in a musical or even doing kareoke in a bar somewhere. I'm just not that guy. But that's okay. I'd much rather see my girls on stage. Because they're awesome.

Of course it'll be nice having them home more too.

I'm pretty sure 2 guys + TV + Legos = quality time. I'm guessing it was the highlight of Owen's weekend.
