This should be interesting.
Monkey is playing in her school's performance of "Seussical" this afternoon and evening--playing in the orchestra, that is--and for the first time since she began performing, my ex and I will witness our daughter's playing.
My ex and I don't have a bad relationship. We divorced after six years, and frankly, we were glad to get it over with, so it was more of a relief than anything else. But even so, especially in the last 6+ years since I left Louisiana, we haven't spent any significant time around each other.
Tonight, however, we'll be in a theater, and then afterwards at dinner. Amy's family will be there, as will my ex's partner. It's going to be interesting.
