I don’t typically write about my family on my blog. I figure if they wanted share their lives with the online world they’d do it themselves1. When they do something public, however, I don’t mind letting the world know what they’ve been up to.
This is one of those times.
Last night our family travelled to see a nearby teen production of Les Misérables, where my daughter played Madame Thénardier. She loves making up over-the-top characters, and spends hours trying to perfect different accents and facial expressions to transform into these creatures from her imagination. When given an opportunity to play a character on stage which is every bit as over-the-top as her wildest imagination, she thrives.
What a joy for me to watch. Also, she got to swear several times during “Master of the House,” and there was nothing I could say about it. This made her especially happy2.
