it's surprisingly exhausting being a stage parent. i was grateful that yesterday was a holiday, because i was tired after running bean around all weekend, getting up early to drive her to locations, staying up late to film a scene in our basement (involving a grave, a creepy mourning woman (me), and bean climbing out of the dryer)...
so here are a few behind-the-scenes shots of the video shoot:

a class of children in an empty lot: notice who's teaching them?
this scene was filmed on his birthday, contributing to the fun whirlwind of a day -- a little acting in the morning, some zombie kickball in the afternoon, and an evening of opening presents, feasting on indian food with friends, eating cake, and playing 1,000 blank white cards.
speaking of zombie kickball.
and you'll also enjoy this song, bean's current fave.
