directing….right before calling action!

Updates from the set:

I woke up this morning to a sweet surprise from my son – an action shot of my boy directing a movie!

One more tidbit – Apparently he has not shaved in 2 weeks – he has named ‘it’ an editing beard.  Humph, he promises a selfie ……..

I just gotta see this …

      thank you. i am just itching – dying to see his film. i am so excited. he is such a talented young man and to see him do the thing i have been hearing him talk about since he was 5 years old – I am going bonkers:)

        OH I know exactly what you mean. I bet you can’t wait to see it. I love how he was directly! That’s super cute. What an awesome thing he has in his sights to do. Wow our kids sure surprise us.
        My Alex comes home everyday and tells me the procedures she does with her drs and I can’t believe this is my kid! So I know exactly what you mean.
        Isn’t it wonderful to see your child doing what they love. It makes you momma heart just blossom! 🙂

    This is so neat! 🙂
    We can tell how proud you are!

    An ‘editing beard’, huh? 😉

    • 5. words4jp  |  April 25, 2014 at 6:17 pm

      I agree – huh? I do not know what it is about my boys and their fascination with facial hair – I have been told it is about being gnarly. So, I am waiting to see this gnarly beardy thing:)

      • 6. Blog It Or Lose It  |  April 25, 2014 at 6:19 pm

        Gnarly makes me think of winter trees hanging over a cliff at the ocean…. Not “awesome” facial hair. But what do we moms know? 😉

    we know nothing. it is all about the gnarly, not the awesome, or cool, or rad….. . 🙂

    🙂 so cute.

    • 9. words4jp  |  April 25, 2014 at 10:14 pm

      He is – I can’t wait to see the beard:)

    I love this – it could be read in multiple ways though – you can give it a bleaker meaning by thinking of the ‘director’ as an addiction or eating disorder voice in your head which is how I first read it because my mind is skewed that way. The final word makes the whole meaning change.

    • 11. words4jp  |  April 25, 2014 at 10:14 pm

      Thanks. I understand what you are saying. This is probably an hourly conversation in my head;)

      • 12. PookyH  |  April 26, 2014 at 8:05 pm

        Sounds familiar!

  • 13. Dom DiFrancesco  |  April 25, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    Sounds like he is enjoying his freedom and his movie making pursuits, how wonderful. 🙂

    I wish him luck with his venture. It’s not an easy path to go straight to director. The editing beard is pretty adorable.

    • 15. words4jp  |  April 26, 2014 at 11:19 am

      He sent me pics last night of the editing beard! I love it. I mean, he is my baby and all and I am not a Dan of facial hair on guys BUT he looks so cool – artsy cool:). I am writing something – ode to an editing beard;) it is a work in progress.

      • 16. Brenda  |  April 26, 2014 at 11:21 am

        LOL You are adorable! Can’t wait to see the beard, it’s famous already.

  • 17. Kirsten  |  April 26, 2014 at 7:30 pm
