You know how to wake up a 12 year old girl? Turn on One Direction! They were on Good Morning America today, and I, myself do not watch the show, but my mom does. I heard her say they were going to sing, so I shot through the house to wake her. I opened the door and there she was still fast asleep at 8:45 a.m. I grabbed her remote and turned it to channel 15 and cranked the volume. I watched as she was opening her eyes and giving me this look as to say “Mom” but then she heard one of them sing, she turned her attention to the screen. “You better get your glasses on,” I said as she struggled to get up before the song was over. I left her sitting with a smile from ear to ear on her face.

Later this morning, Oldest was talking to a friend she had made online. The girl lives in Florida and was saying that her mom wasn’t doing anything for Thanksgiving because it wasn’t “on plan.” I asked what she meant and apparently the mom is pretty strict on what her family eats and how much. I told Oldest to tell her friend, we had pie and turkey to come on out, I would feed her.  Oldest knew I was joking. A few minutes passed and she looked at her dad and me and asked, “Is turkey meat?” Now I really did not know where she was going with this question and we both busted out laughing. She asked again, not understanding why we were laughing. We said “Yes, it is meat.” She then said, “Oh well, G is a Vegetarian.”  I just looked at her and said, “Then what is she worried about?” Oldest laughed and said “yea, really.”  She did tell her friend what I said about  jumping on a plane and come on out. She said I was awesome. Awww, made me feel good. 🙂

Just like all other tweens and teens right now, Oldest loves her some boy bands. One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer are her 2 favs. All I hear most of the day is how great they are, how talented, how cute. Give this momma a break all ready! It didn’t help that for Christmas, the majority of her gifts were of one band or the other. Needless to say her walls are covered with their faces, even her ceiling has pictures looking down on her.  She also follows them on Twitter.  Why not right? 

Yesterday, I was going over her finished lessons and she picked up her phone. I was talking to her, when all of a sudden she starts making this weird breathing noise. I looked up and her face is red and she has tears. Then she squeaked out, “Michael Clifford followed me!!” “Who?” I asked. She said it again trying hard to get it louder. I finally realized who she was talking about. I should have known right away though. It was a member of 5 Seconds of Summer or 5SOS as they like to be called. She dropped her phone and ran out of the room. I was yelling at her to breathe, breathe. She was practically hyperventilating.  Then I heard her telling her dad and grandma the news. Meantime, I looked at her account to see if it was really him. It had his profile pic but something seemed way off. She calmed down and came back in and said she had to check it out just to be sure. (Smart kid.)

She pulled her account up on the computer, clicked on the followers pic then typed in the guys name and it went to another account. Both had the same pics but the posts were different. I saw her excited look turn. She was a sad little girl. “I figured, it’s a fake account.” She said looking miserable. I told her I was sorry that it wasn’t the real guy. “That’s ok,” she said, then she got quiet.  “But if Harry Styles ever followes me…” “If Harry Styles ever follows you, I chimed in,  you won’t be able to say anything. I will just find you on the floor, passed out.” We both looked at each other and laughed. “Yep, you’re right about that one mom!” I know I am sweet girl, I know I am! 🙂

Well it’s New Year’s Eve and I am sitting here with my girl watching Rockin’ New Years Eve. Oldest is in love with One Direction so this is where we are, not channel surfing, not looking for a movie, but trying to catch all of One Direction’s performances.

Little L took a very early nap today and only slept for 45 minutes. She was ready to hit the hay around 8:30. Hubby offered to buy us a bottle of wine to bring in the new year but I haven’t drank anything for atleast 10 years. No lie. I am a light weight! The last time I drank was on New Years Eve and he ended up having to make me a hot pocket before I went to bed, to soak up some of the alcohol! 😉 Oh the memories!

I logged onto Facebook a little while ago and one of my best friends from high school wished me a happy birthday. Which would have been wonderful but she is 1 month to early. She realized that soon afterwards…she has 3 boys and I think she has finally went crazy!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful night and bringing in the new year safe and sound. Commercial is over got to get back! 🙂
