“To be honest, I wasn’t looking forward to the recital at all. I worried about how my little ones would do on a big stage in a huge auditorium, and I dreaded having to sit through two hours of watching size 2 teenagers flit and flitter across the stage. I decided I would pass the time reading a book on my iPhone.

I didn’t read a single word.”
