On Wednesday, Quillan and Audrey came to our matinee performance. My mom came down to look after Lily, which was nice for her to have alone time with Nana. Q, Audrey and I took the streetcar downtown together, and had lunch at a restaurant before going to the theatre:
Audrey is still so little, she didn’t understand very much. I think she enjoyed the music and kids, but she slept through the second act entirely. Just to have her there, though was amazing. I booked box seats for them, and I could actually see Audrey sitting on Q’s lap from the wings. I took this photo from backstage:
Can you see them, high up in the box? So sweet, right? After that, I went down to my dressing room and cried. It’s so emotional for me when these two parts of my life collide. I think Audrey will remember the ice cream she shared with Daddy at intermission, and the ice in her water glass at lunch, more than she will remember the show. Years from now, though, she will have this photo and know we were all there together.
Okay. I’m going to cry again!
