CYT Tucson posted a hysterical list onto their Facebook page of ways to tell if you’re a CYT parent. And by hysterical, I mean hysterically true. Thanks to Ronnie Laue Crider for hitting the nail on the head.

How to Tell if You Might Be a CYT Parent

If someone says, “I feel like I’m carrying a dragon on my back,” and you can say, “Been there, done that, and I’ve got the T-shirt to prove it!”…

If you are washing green, grey, white, pink, red or yellow make-up (and/or glitter) off of YOUR face because you hugged so many CYT kids after a show…

If “a night at the theater” doesn’t mean wearing a tuxedo or a fancy gown with pearls, but instead means you dress like a ninja, wear closed-toe shoes, and carry a flashlight…

If the phrase, “Don’t you dare throw your wig on the floor!” has crossed your lips even once…

If you’ve ever said to the nice sales associate at Party City, “I’m looking for some plain white stockings for my son.”…

If you’ve resigned yourself to the fact that every Monday (or Tuesday) night is filled on the family calendar from now until high school graduation due to CYT classes…

If you are so darned stinkin’ proud of each of those CYT kids after the show closes that you just want to shmush them with hugs…

If you’ve ever spent time at a rehearsal in the hallway repeating, “Stop running! Slow down, please! Pick up your trash!”…

If you’d happily take any of those CYT kiddos home with you if they needed a place to stay because you love them so much…

…you just might be a CYT parent.
