My Real Life

It’s been awhile since I’ve written, and I’m disappointed in myself, because I was doing great in 2015.

And then we hit the end of February and time just flew away from me.

But, to be honest, I was busy with some pretty amazing things.

And, those amazing things all involved her.

To begin with, Monkey Girl and I were selected to participate in Morristown’s Got Talent, a local talent competition.

Calling it that makes it sound small.

It’s not.

It was pretty huge, and more importantly, it was so much fun to experience it with Monkey Girl.

And here is our act: (sorry it’s so fuzzy)

We didn’t win the competition, but I have to be honest…

My daughter asked me to perform with her and we had a blast.

It was an experience we will share forever.

Oh, and we did with the selfie contest.

Then, the culmination of months of hard work followed two weeks later, as Monkey Girl performed in our school’s production of Beauty and the Beast.

She was Belle and she was amazing.

There is no video to go along with this, but here is one of her pieces in the show.

My girl.

But, here’s why I’m titling this particular post “Her.”

These two things were incredibly time consuming.

Incredibly nerve-wracking.

And yet…

Monkey Girl did it all.

On her own.

I didn’t run lines with her.

I didn’t practice her songs with her.

I didn’t monitor that she was getting her homework done.

And yet…

She memorized it all.

She rocked it all.

She ended the marking period with A’s and A+’s in difficult classes with a lot of coursework.

By herself.

And I couldn’t be prouder.


  1. Wow, congratulations to you and Amy. She did really well at everything. Participating in a show is a feat but taking a lead… well that is just amazing.

  2. I would like to add that I have the privilege if knowing her and she does it all with style, grace and compassion.
