Help! I'm editing my daughter's essay for a class and I'm stuck. I can never remember the darn rule. Which one is right:

I was really pleased with me and Rosie's dance.

or

I was really pleased with Rosie's and my dance.


Thank you!!

If you take out "Rosie's" and "and" then try reading the sentence, you'll know which is correct:

I was really pleased with me dance.

I was really pleased with my dance.

Hope that helps!
