A friend emailed me an audition notice from a community theater group that is looking for young teen males for a role that would run from the beginning of October until the beginning of December. I'm not sure if I want to tell him about it because he and Hannah got parts in a play with them a couple of years ago and I hated it.

For starters, the theater is about 15 or 20 minutes from home and they practice every day. Secondly, they have kept them as late as midnight for rehearsals on school nights and then they got mad at me when I said they couldn't stay that late! Alex was 11 and Hannah was only 9. I got "talked to" more than once because I took them out early. I ended up getting so frustrated that I wanted to pull them out a few days before the play started, but they loved it so I had to just suck it up.

I also found out from my friend that she is getting her daughter an agent. Alex is going to freak out when he hears that because he has been begging me to get him an agent for years. Ugh! I don't think I'm cut out to me a "stage mom"!

Midnight on a school night??? You *know* I would have freaked! :)

I know, I kept thinking what mother in their right mind would let their 9 and 11 year old kids stay out until midnight? What really sucked was they made it seem like I was the crazy one. The attitude and dirty looks I got when I went there made it so uncomfortable.

Thanks for understanding!
