Makes me Scratch my Head

*edited since original post*

I've got to do another post on my precious second born child. She's my quiet one, for the most part. Trouble doesn't find her like a heat seeking missile. Contrary to The Boy. She doesn't talk ninety miles an hour in a bid for the fastest mouth like her sister. She just skims it right below the radar. I see her winning on Survivor one day.

A week or so ago, when we were walking in to W-mart, the greeter dude was handing out 3-D glasses. She and The Boy both got a pair. I didn't think twice about it. Later, I was informed that these were for some concert the mouse channel was putting on. Ahhh. I had confiscated The Boy's pair while shopping and I remembered putting them in the truck somewhere. Kenna had misplaced hers so these that were left? Were golden.

Last night was the concert. THE concert, Internets. It was *Lilly Louisiana*. Where the use of 3-D glasses were required. My girl was all a twitter over it.



Bouncy bouncy bounce.

Wringing hands.

Can I just say it's murder on the eyes to watch a concert/show in 3-D with no glasses.

I watched her fondly and recalled a night many years ago when I was around 14. It was a concert on HBO. My best friend at the time, Michelle (not of Tiddly Winks fame), and I were at a family friend's home watching Duran Duran in concert. We squealed. We bounced. We wrung hands. We sang every word to every song and almost cried when it was over because we were unable to record it on the VCR.

What a girly girl my baby was. The Man and I weren't too thrilled to watch it, but we did because she was just enthralled.

Now, we get to tonight.

We're watching a movie while waiting on our show to come on. Right at the good part, we see the timer come on in the corner of the screen indicating that it was going to start recording in two minutes. What?? My husband asked what was set up to record and went to check the schedule.

Myth Busters? What?? He went to skip the recording so we could finish what we were watching and Kenna jumped up and hollered...."Wait, I gotta go to the other side and set it up. Jaime is wrestling a shark tonight!" Then she took off.

She knows their names? On Myth Busters? Apparently one of her favorite shows.

Along with Avatar. And Harry P*tter.

I don't get her. At all.

She makes me scratch my head.

Singing along and knowing every single word.

No shame. What so ever.

**Apparently the Lilly Louisianna threw people off. This is my play on words. I'm referring to Billy Ray's daughter who has her own show with the state Montanna used in the name. Hope this helps those are unfamiliar with the tween shows! Sorry for the confusion.**

Hope, do you remember some tv show and they had advertised to get a card that had smells on them and during the show you have to scratch places on the card and smell?

This was late 80's maybe early 90's. Gosh for the life of me I can't remember what show that was- but I do remember it was 7 of us kids, ages 12 and under, and like two cards. Yea, it was outrageous! But we would have died if anyone turned the channel! I totally understand! LOL!

My oldest sometimes gets me wondering what was in the water I was driniking when I had him. He picks up the most odd facts from who knows where. usually i'm like "no way he knows what he's talikin' about. He made that up!" Then I check, HE'S RIGHT! About the annual rainfall in outer Siberia! They are amazing creatures, aren't they?

Makenna is unique! I don't know what you are talking about in this post as far as the shows...and I must be older than sin because I don't remember any concerts with 3-D glasses either...sounds like a teenage blast though! What was I doing around that time...well that would be an interesting post but....not gonna happen?????
