Aah, the insight holiday specials give us about our children!
So I was snuggled in with the Nerdlings watching the Michael Buble Christmas Special and on comes Justin Bieber. So these girls start screaming on the show to the point that they are crying. So NerdPie asks why these girls are so worked up over silly Justin Bieber. I tell her that they’re very excited to see this singer that they all think it’s cute and wonderful. She shook her head in disbelief. She says plainly,”They’re freaking out over some person they don’t even know!” So I asked her who she would get excited and freak about seeing. She looks me straight in the face and says plainly, “My dead grandfather.” So I ask which one and she said either of them. We went on to talk about why we both think that this reaction to stars is silly.
Is it wrong to say how proud I am of my 8-year-old little girl that she has not bought in to all this craziness over pop stars. Is this due to the homeschooling or the extreme nerdiness? Either way it’s a win.
