There’s a Teenager in the House

Well, it has finally happened. We now have a teenager in our house. A.J. turns 13 years old today. Happy Birthday, A.J!!! You rock, dawg!! He has been threatening us that this would happen one day but now it is finally here. I have to admit, however, that he doesn’t act like a typical teenager yet. He is actually respectful to his parents more 50% of the time and he listens to over 75% of what I have to tell him (… or at least he does a great job pretending to listen while not noticeably rolling his eyes).

In all seriousness, I am proud of the young man he has become. Not only is he my son, but he is also becoming one of my best friends.

So, how is our newest teenager going to celebrate this milestone? In the theatre, of course. He has rehearsal tonight. A.J. is no stranger to celebrating his birthday in this manner. This is the fourth year in a row that he has spent his special day in the theatre. His 10th and 11th birthdays were actual performance days for the show that he happened to be in at the time.
