We are party animals...

For weeks Kadin has been singing the same song over and over on the way to school...

"We are party animals, we're going to paint the town!"

It was a bit odd... not the part about him singing in the car... that's normal... but usually I can tell where he learned the song...

His recent hits of late include:
"Never gonna grow up, never gonna slow down..."

Which is a pretty accurate anthem for Kadin... Any takers want to name that tune?

But back to the "party animals" song... it ended up being practice for his yearly class musical... 
Kadin starred as a Cheetah in something that was an odd twist on the Lion King... Simba was on a quest to find the secret to happiness and the animals were helping him figure it out...


Kadin's pack of cheetahs tried to convince Simba that the key to happiness was to party all day... and they were quite convincing... Kadin busted out a few dance moves that had each of his parents blushing... but no matter... the boy was in the zone on stage and loving every minute of it... 


At this point the microphones stopped working and Kadin's part was over so I mentally checked out a bit... but in the end Simba and all the animals looked happy so I am sure they figured it all out... 


I'd love to say that the play ended with ripping his shirt off and the crowd going wild but really we just had to return the cheetah shirt after the play to his teacher... but Kadin was perfectly happy in his "dancing pants" and face paint!


Well done Kadin! I see a great career on the big stage in your future...
