“Choo Choo Booty” and Other Things My Kid Says
Of all the challenges we face as performers, there is no greater challenge than our children. Gone are the days of late nights out drinking and dancing (well, at least not as many and not with such abandon). Gone are the leisurely rehearsals and complicated costumes.
Instead, we have munchkins underfoot, crying, bribery, underage babysitters, and multitasking like the lady bosses we are!
This week we skim the surface of challenges and changes that have occurred AC (after children) and we reminisce on the BC (before children) days.
