Mr. T finished his latest performance in theater this week. Attack of the Muffin Man was written and directed by their assistant director, and I have to say, it was quite brilliant!
Due to his Mascot schedule Mr. T took a smaller part than normal, but he knocked it out of the park!
I sent a text to a friend of mine with pictures from one of the performances.
He looks really into it.
It’s called ACTING.
I hope Mr. T looks really into it! That’s what was supposed to be happening!
But, my sarcastic comment aside, it is actually a compliment when someone makes a statement like that – it means that Mr. T is doing his job and he is fully immersed in his role!
Now for your viewing pleasure!
There was drama
There was story time
There was singing
And there was dancing!
There was even an (almost) dead man walking!
And then there were the fun pictures afterwards 🙂
For #MCM (Man Crush Monday) Mr. T’s girlfriend posted, “If we could all just take a minute to appreciate how wonderful this man is, that would be amazing. So proud of him in everything he does, from singing at church, to mascotting at school, to being involved in the school play.”
So, they aren’t my words, but she sums up my Wordless Wednesday perfectly!
Okay, they are as good as you think they will be!
Ever regret not buying something? Every time I see this picture I regret not buying it! Maple Bacon Frosting.
Oh no! Something got me!
Okay, the title might be reaching a little – or, it might not be!
Most of you have been with me long enough to know that Mr. T is his school’s mascot – the very first mascot they’ve ever had (the school is only three years old). He is a pioneer!
Actually, he is a Ranger!
Meet the new mascot!
He’s handsome, too!
Firing up the crowd while the cheerleaders perform.
Doing a running high 5! Which was really good considering the limited visibility!
Getting into the spirit!
Now, I don’t upload to YouTube, but I was going to do it for you guys – and I did, but I can’t figure out how to make the sound show up, so here is some action, but with no sounds!
I’m one Proud Mommy right now! 🙂
And that would be my first (of many) Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season! And this would be my favorite son, Mr. T, in his cheer uniform, on the first day of school.
In honor of my son, Mr. T, who turned 16 on Monday, I thought I would bring you
16 Ways to Know you have a Teenage Boy
- Your water bill has gone up. This is due to extended showers. I fully believe that this is due to a sudden interest in cleanliness. This is the story. This is the truth. I refuse to believe anything else.
- The fact that there must be a force-field around all of your laundry hampers is a genuine concern.
- You understand what Snapchat is, how it works and yes, you are worried.
- Food disappears. Like overnight. Like if you wash a bunch of grapes and lovingly pluck them from the stems and put them in a bowl in the fridge, make sure you eat all you want right then. They won’t be there in the morning.
- Serving sizes become meaningless. The note that says “Serves Four” becomes “Serves a mom, a teenage son and 3 tablespoons will be left over. Too little to save for tomorrows lunch but too much apparently for the human garbage disposal to eat.”
- You’ve heard the perks of living at home, and they don’t include love, they include Food, Shelter and Wi-fi.
- You start to wonder if eyes really can roll back into a head, and if so – is it worth a trip to the emergency room? Didn’t you warn them when they were younger that “If you keep making that face it will stick that way?”
- You’ve had a conversation and then had to sneak onto the internet to translate what was actually said.
- You know what Kk, Bae, Molly and Poppin’ Tags all stand for.
- You’ve had a complete conversation where all of the answers you received were in the form of sighs and grunts.
- There have been days when you communicate via Twitter and Text more than you talk in person.
- “Can I drive?” Is the most common phrase in your house. You even start hearing it in your sleep.
- You have to troll Twitter to find out what is going on in your kids life. #StalkerMom
- Mysterious phone calls start coming in. Sometimes these phone calls require hanging out in the back yard.
- Clouds of aftershave/deodorant/cologne is becoming a permanent feature in the bathroom.
- You have heard the “Mom, I need my space” talk.
If any of the above has happened to you, you might be raising a teenage boy!
And you know what?
I wouldn’t change it for the world.
