So my honorary granddaughter, Bryce, and I, and her mother went to see Sleeping Beauty at the Ensemble in early December. But first we went to lunch at Taste of Belgium right next door. Which is always wonderful, but was absolutely a madhouse at noon-ish on that Saturday. A delightful madhouse, but nonetheless….
And Bryce, not quite 4, had announced that she was scared to see a play – that she had been some performance, and it was scary. I watched Frozen with this little person, and she didn’t bat an eye. Her mother was carefully saying – let’s just try it and see. I pointed out that there was a dragon in it, and that we both loved dragons.
Bryce had dressed like a princess for the play – she was a smash hit with the audience before the performance, and the cast really loved talking to her in the lobby afterwords.
Yes, she did get through it and we all had a great time. (Though I did not care for their version of a dragon.) And afterwards Miss Bryce and her mom went down the street to meet some friends and watch Santa rappelling down a building at Fountain Square. Quite a busy day.
