I traveled with 2 of 8 to one of her dance competitions.
That wasn't the unusual part.
What was unusual was that we left all the other kids at home.
With 1 of 8 in California with The Boy, we arranged for a couple of precious and brave friends to watch kiddos on Friday and then Mike took over Kid Watch for Saturday and Sunday.
Which meant 2 of 8 and I were on our own.
And to hang out backstage a bit.
And how much work and hairspray and stretching and marking steps and blisters and tape and safety pins and toupee tape go into all that effortless look.
There is truth backstage, back in the green room.
