One of my prayers for you, is that at some point, preferably between the ages of nine and fifteen, you become enthralled with a boy band.
There is no greater feeling (maybe I'm slightly exaggerating) then being "in love" with a boy band. Here's why:
#1. There are usually a few boys in the group and you get to pick which one you like the best. You'll probably have a lot of things in common with him like eating ice cream and swimming at the beach.
#2. Whenever your bored or can't fall asleep, you can plan out exactly what you will say to him if you meet. This conversation will always go wonderfully and will end with him asking you out on a date.
#3. Until you meet him in real life you can simply talk to the doll version of him.
#4. A boy band is the perfect (and possibly only) excuse to by copious amounts of Bop and Tiger Beat magazines. I, as your mother, will happily indulge in this with you and will let you put up posters all over your room (using sticky tack).
#5. You can learn all the words to all their songs; once you've accomplished this you'er an official fan.
#6. You can learn all their dance moves and then perform them for your Dad, Jack, and I. We will love it!
#7. Not only can you go to their concert when they're at their height; you can check them out again twenty years later at their reunion tour!
Boy Bands. Amen.
