On the Moshing Floor

It has been a LOOONG and lame few weeks. I wish I could do something to comfort my son. To stop the progression of his disease. To find a treatment. Ive got nothing. I heard about a free concert in town. FREE. IN TOWN. There were a few bands that I know my son has been listening to and studying. (do you remember doing that? pouring over their lyrics like fine poetry?)

High Flight Society

Ashes Remain

A Rotterdam November



Ive listened to them and approve. I am sooo nosy like that. So I called my husband who was just about due home from working 20 hours...

I quickly grabbed these:

and headed out. Then realized that I was old. So I grabbed this guy. Who is by far the best friend and young man I can think of. Love this kid.

Later in the night, I ran around the floor with my lame camera and snapped pictures of polie kids up REAL CLOSE. They didn't appreciate the flash much. Good times. Thats where this picture came from :)

It didn't occur to me to drop my "child" off. Oh no. There I was standing on the floor realizing that somewhere along the line I have gotten old.

Note,the big Goliath looking guy there. Now, HES old. Ancient. He got off work very late and screeched into town to stand guard behind his sweet daughters and protect them from the Mosh Pit and sweaty, stinky boys. He took a few elbow jabs to the ribs. Man, I wish he were there during my punk show days. At one point, during a slow song, he took out his Iphone with a Zippo lighter application and waved it.
I guffawed VERY VERY loud, even with ear plugs in.

Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day!

Me and some other moms took our 13 yr. old daughters to a concert last week. We felt very old, LOL! The guys in the bands seemed like little kids.

You are a very cool mommy! The things we do to comfort and encourage our kids...

My husband has the zippo lighter on his Iphone too...and he uses it frequently. Funny

Just stopping by from SITS to wish you a very happy Monday!

Well I'm sad to hear of your son's condition. This must be a very hard time for you, probably moreso than for him. I can't imagine how you are feeling, although you did say there was some relief it wasn't fatal etc... In any event, I really do hope you can find a doc who can offer you some assistance with his current situation and future potential degeneration... I'm following your blog now very closely so I'm eager to here how things progress for you (and Nate of course!!)

Take care, (sits)

Hi! I'm stopping by from SITS! I just wanted to share a bit of comment love. It looks like y'all had a lot of fun! I haven't heard of this band but, like you, I'm {{{old}}}! 8^) The last concert I went to with my girls was when tobyMac and Barlow Girl were at Six Flags a couple of years ago. It was so much fun!

I hope the rest of your week is absolutely amazing!

Many Blessings,

Teresa <><

Kathy, I wish I could have gone with you. We could have realized we were old together! I was playing U2 in the car a few months ago and Benjamin said, "Mom, why do you like crazy music?" So I asked him what he liked and he said, "Bach and bluegrass." Where have I failed? On the upside, Christian can hit the high notes along with Bono.
