Reality in an Air-Band

So~ it's summer and my kids are in a band. They meet at the park @ noon. Jack is a back up singer and pounding out the beat. And Luke. Luke is the dancer. I didn't know he could get his groove on... Looks like their band is out for a Mighty Might Bosstones feel.

I told my brood I thought practice might be called on account of the nip in the air and the pouring rain~ but they are bound and determined to be famous and like the mail- come rain, sleet or snow the music must get through. I told them again in a firmer Mom-voice that I did not want them at the park today. Pouting and Faux-hawked to the max, they gloomed at the front windows, wishing the drops to stop. I went upstairs.

Well, I just came back down. The front door is wide open and this is what I see:

My children fleeing the confines of home in search of their destiny. A destiny which they believe can be found at the park down the street in the form of an Air-Band.

Have I mentioned that Katey escaped as well? I think she's the costume/set designer. She wants everyone in the band to have blue hair.

Can I complain? They did wriggle from my authoritative grip, yet my house stands silently blissful. Rock on, Little Tones.

How fun! Rainy days are hard for kids to acccept. And Geez mom the music must go on!!!
My daughter would love to design their hair too, i don't know if it is because I am a hairstylist, but she has wanted bright pink hair since she was three. She is almost nine and still insists she needds the pink hair. My other one wants red strips in her pretty blonde hair. HELP!! Maybe I will suggest a band called natural to them.

Wow, you're going to a shower and your kids are playing BAND 2 in a shower. Do they have the same members as before or is this a new band?
