Tonight Iz and 4 friends went to their very first Broadway show, on their own. Not entirely on their own—they were escorted to the theater (and literally to their seats) by one friend's mom. And were descended on at the show's end by a total mom squad. But, they lasted the entire show by themselves and were literally giddy both with the ridiculousness of the musical and the fact that they were on their own. It was a very cool school night in my almost 10 and a half year old's life.
