Bing I and Bing II


I know yer not legit until you post some pix. So ...

WHY THE SEQUEL IS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL:
*A tenor saxophone player, Brian Jr. has been named to his school district's elementary honors band two years in a row.
*He's been in three community theater productions (something I've never done). Jr. was the youngest kid in the poignant ensemble piece "Round the World and Back Again" by Stephen Murray. He got a good size lead in the children's show "Darius the Dragon" by Eleanor Harder. Most recently, he played his sax as a member of the boys band at the finale of "The Music Man."

I didn't realize it till "The Music Man," but I morphed into a stage mom. Stage moms usually cheese me off because they're always sticking their noses in when they should butt out. But for the record, I didn't do anything I wasn't asked to do.

Great pictures Bing. You still look the same and your son is soo cute! Sounds like you have passed on some of your talents to him.

When I get around to shaving, it makes me look much younger than I really am. But there's no self delusion when it comes to age when you're taking a pill to lower your blood pressure every day, like I am.
Truthfully, Lynn, I think my boy is more talented than I ever was.

Bing I and Bing II are both adorable, thanks for sharing!
I can relate to being a little stage-mom-ish. I'm really hot on math and science for my 6th grader. He has been saying since age 5 he wants to be a scientist; I'm helping (read as: pushing) him to follow that path, hoping he can make a decent living someday! (And buy mommy a nice new car...)

BING! said...

A big smiley-smile right back at ya, Ellen. Without a doubt you are doing the right thing ... until he changes his mind about being a scientist after the math comes home that's too hard. But then, that's part of the whole parenting journey, isn't it? It is worth a try. Pharmaceutical companies, like Merck out in my area, treat their scientists well.

Oh Bing, He is sooo cute!!! You should be so proud!!! And I can't believe, you look the same; minus some extra facial hair :-) But I do understand the difference between how you look and how you feel. I am already complaining of Aches and Pains that I didn't expect to show up for another 20 years!
