CONGRATS!!!!!!! What an honor! And to be barely starting high school and knowing 3 instruments -- WOW!


That's fantastic, Carmen. Kudos to you for raising a son who has the perseverance to take it to the next level. Really happy for you and yours.


That is absolutely fantastic. CONGRATULATIONS!!!


Great news! Congratulations to the little dude! I also think you need to check out an oldie but goodie...Fatboy Slim's Weapon of Choice video on Utube...with the one and only Christopher Walken.I had forgotten about this one, great song, great moves!


Congratulations to him! Woo hoo!

Great news - put a big smile on my face today.


I cry way more often than you, as you know... so you know I got all choked up when I read this. Had to dry my eyes a bit to type this. CONGRATULATIONS GABE!
So proud of him- how exciting!!!

Congrats to your son! My husband played the tuba in HS and as an 8th grader was asked to go along with the band and play in the bicentennial parade in Philadelphia. They needed enough tubas to spell out the school name on the bells and he got to go along and be the A! One of his all time favorite memories.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
