Are you on Facebook? Do you get the “On this day” memories? They basically re-share with you something that you posted last year, two years ago; three years ago…you get the point.
I usually get the update, but haven’t received anything worth sharing yet.
Last night, I got a picture of my girls from four years ago. My Little Mouse was just a wee thing around six months old, and my Little Bird was about three and a half. If I remember correctly, the Little Bird had tied a baby blanket around her shoulders, pretending she was a superhero, so D tied one around the Little Mouse to match and I snapped a picture.
They look adorable.
So what does this have to do with Music Monday? Well, as I contemplated what song to choose for today’s post, that picture made up my mind for me.
You see, the Little Bird was wearing a shirt that read “The Future Mrs. Bieber” and seeing as I actually like the Biebs’ new songs, that picture solidified my choice.
I can’t wait to show the Little Bird that picture, because she doesn’t remember actually liking Justin Bieber. She doesn’t remember watching Baby or One Time, over and over again; singing all the words at the top of her lungs. She doesn’t remember that I would have listened to the My World CD over and over again, if it meant I could stop listening to The Little Mermaid CD in the car.
These were the first videos she watched on YouTube, and the first pop songs she actually requested over any nursery rhyme or kids’ song. In fact, to this day, she refers to him as Justin Beaver, even after I tell her what his proper name is, she doesn’t care.
A few months ago, as we were walking through the mall, she saw the floor-to-ceiling ads at the Calvin Klein store of the Biebs kissing a model. She didn’t seem to care that they were kissing as much as she cared that he was in his underwear. And when I told her she used to like him when she was little, she actually said tried to argue with me that she didn’t.
Her protests of liking this boy who was in his underwear, and displayed larger than life and for all to see at the mall was so unfathomable that she refused to belieb it.
Fast forward a few months, and she’s telling me to put the radio higher when his new song comes on. The Little Mouse likes it too.
Something tells me we have some new and renewed Bieber fans!
Here is Where are Ü Now by Skrillex and Diplo, featuring Justin Bieber.
Happy Monday, y’all!
