Mouse rocked her elementary school talent show this afternoon. I am so proud of her! She’s really taking off emotionally after a few months of more maternal attention and less Babushka. The love of performance is a mixed blessing in some respects – it serves to feed the inner voice inside that tells me I’m only as worthwhile as the last thing I did for someone else’s benefit – but I know it’s been a boon to me professionally and in my creative life. I’m glad that my girl is getting to experience it. I hope she learns to wield the power wisely.

I found another Dinosaur Mom – or, in this case, Dinosaur Mommy – blog. It appears to be a credit to the species.
