A week ago today I took my five-year-old to see the traveling Broadway production of The Lion King. The original plan was for my older daughter and I to attend the Friday night performance, and Kate and her mom would go to the Sunday matinee. Alas, Jackie had a karate test on Friday night, so we switched.
An evening show is a long night for someone who is five....even a production as amazing as The Lion King. Around 10:30 PM she began to fall asleep. I tried to wake her with the assurance that there was only ten more minutes.
Kate looked me right in the eyes and said, "Dad, I have seen the movie....Simba wins!". With that she fell asleep.
And that he did.
Have A Great Day.
