Baby, baby, baby, ohh...god, kill me now!

We lived through The Wiggles.  We didn't mind Sesame Street or the Backyardigans.  I actually enjoy the soundtrack to "Princess and the Frog."  But this?  THIS?



GAH! 

And mind you, this has not been brought into our house by Pixie.  Oh no.  This is alllll Wonderboy.  Remember those book order things you would get at school?  The ones that were printed on thin newsprint paper with the teeny-tiny ordering lines on the back? Yeah. So he brings one home a month or so ago and shows us what he wants.  The Justin Bieber "super pack."  Including! A book, stickers and...wait for it....an entire CD!  Get it now for the low, low price of twelve dollars!  Kid actually took money out of his piggy bank to pay for it.  'Cause hell to the NO were we going to buy it for him.  The Mr. and I kept pressing him, "Are you surrrre that's what you want?  Look at some of the other books you could get!  You could get all these other books for $12."

Didn't work.  Book orders came in a week ago.  The Mr. refuses to let him play the CD in his car.  He's the smart one.  Me? I'm the pushover.  But it's testing my ever-loving patience.  It's SO painful. I'm even past the point where it's cute when WB and Pixie sing along.  That lasted exactly one car ride, actually. 

Send help!

And Duran Duran!

Hilarious! OMG! When my 8 year old came home with what I assume is the same book order form, he seriously informed me "When we're done picking out my books, Mom, I want that form so I can cut out that picture of Justin Beiber and scribble all over his face and throw things at it."

So...sorry?

lmao - right there with ya momma - my 15 yr old son just got a haircut which he swore he would not do because someone told him he looked like Justin Beiber...lol....thank goodness I can now watch Metal Mania with my children and they actually know the songs :) and i dont feel guilty for subjecting them to it :) They actually like KISS and ACDC and OZZY and POISON and WARRANT :)

If there's been one time over the past decade I'm glad no young children reside in my home, this here is the time. I have never even listened to a single song and yet, my guitar gently weeps for you.

I wonder if my parents ever felt that way that year I stole their credit card and ordered Freedom Rock off the tv commercial.

Justin Bieber's pretty, and her songs are WAY catchy. Best to submit, I think.

You're welcome.

And I thought listening to the Lion King over and over again was bad.

You win.

While I find the Justin B. bashing to be a bit much...it doesn't mean that I want to listen to his CD in my car! Or anywhere... Although I did see a few minutes of Ellen with him and Usher and thought he seemed like a sweet little guy. Still not interested in catching the "Fever" though...

AC said...

does this mean you and the mr. are gonna have to attend a jb concert one of these days?

I laugh at...I mean WITH you.

I feel like I'm SO in the dark. See him everywhere, hear about him everywhere, but as far as I know I haven't heard him yet. It's almost making me want to go look him up on youtube just to see what I'm missing, but I finally did that with Lady Gaga after the MTV movie awards and I've had Bad Romance stuck in my head ever since. Will this help?!

Oh, Duran Duran. How I miss you. My kids love Katy Perry. It might be worse. ... Nah.

Did you see the SNL he was on recently? The skit with him and Tina Fey was pretty hilarious. Reminded me of my NKOTB days. What goes around comes around, right??
