Christmas performance

So it's that time of year again and Older Boy had his pre school Christmas performance. A few weeks ago he told me he was going to be a wise man (Spiderman-obviously) and he was giving baby 'Jeebus' the gift of cheese (!?!). After speaking to his teacher she told us the 'play' wasn't going to happen because most of the children were too little to co-operate so it was just going to be singing.

So the stage was set, all the littles were on stage and ready to go. The curtain opened. All the children stood scared of all the parents faces staring back at them.

Except my son. Older boy was jumping up and down and waving "hello!!" He was setting the scene for the rest of his performance.

They started off singing 'twinkle twinkle" and it was sweet.

Then they sung 'Jingle bells'. Just had everything crossed the next line wasn't 'Santa smells' and it wasn't. So far so good.

Then it was time for 'When Santa got stuck up the chimney' The song finished. The 2 seconds of silence came before the next song started when Older Boy jumps to the front of the stage, stands next to his teacher and yells

Me and Daddy go red. We know what his jokes are like. They are either along the lines of "Knock Knock" *who's there* "PENIS!!" Or just yelling something like "Boobies!!" Or his new favourite "How does the dog get to hospital?" "With a fan" (I know, it makes no sense, he made it up)

Me and Daddy sit there, red faced laughing nervously and hearing all the other parents laughing when Older Boy shouts..

Phew, it was clean, and nothing too weird. And his teacher stopped him before he carried on with something inappropriate.

The performance carries on and they shout the song "WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS" and then  it was over. 

It went well. But why is it my child being the goof on stage? He is special!
