Bieber Fever and Puberty

Scene: Driving in the car on the way home from the Justin Bieber movie with Eldest, Middle, and my 12-1/2 year old Niece.

Me: So what did you guys think?! (Because I actually kinda enjoyed it. Even in annoying 3-D in which they bend you over for $5 more a ticket just to wear those stupid glasses that instantly give you a headache.)

Niece: (ranting authoritatively) (as only a 12 year old girl can) That was terrible! He's being exploited and is going to burn out. They even sell Justin Bieber PAJAMAS at Walmart! Gross!  I didn't like him before and I DON'T like him now!  I'm totally NOT telling my friends I saw that movie.  Ewwwwwwww!

Middle: Well, I liked it. He's cool!

Eldest: (shrugging) I liked when it showed him performing and when he was hanging out with his friends.

Niece: (still fuming) His voice is totally going to sound different when he hits puberty! And then what will he do?

Eldest: Puberty? What do you mean?

(Keep in mind I'm listening to all this going on in the backseat as I'm driving...)

Niece: Well, puberty for boys means that when they get older, their voices change. Their voices get deeper and then they sound different.

Eldest: (TOTALLY matter-of-factly) Huh. Because my dad says it's when you get hair on your balls.

[Sound of awkward silence from my Niece who doesn't quite know how to respond.]

[Sound of me choking back hysterical laughter.]

[Sound of both Eldest and Middle wondering why no one is talking anymore.]

Awesomest Comment:  So funny. Your niece is going to forever associate Justin Bieber with hairy balls. At least she didn't like him anyway.--Anne

I literally laughed out loud at this. At least they're prepared, right?

Our husbands must have SOOOO gone to the same "Puberty Training for Boys" school! ;)

Like your niece's idea of voice changing better! (How I remember my sense of injustice at the world's ills at 12! If only Justin Bieber exploitation were the worst of it! ;) )

Happy Valentine's Day!

Maureen said...

She must have died... too funny.

This is exactly the kinds of conversations that are in my future. My husband is awful at saying things the kids will repeat.

Your neice is totally scarred for life or at least the next couple of years.
And for the record no 12 year old girl would ever own up to seeing the Justin Beiber movie. When my 4 year old wants to make my 11 year old fume she runs around the house yelling "You love Justin Beiber!" It creates an instant riot every time.

Amy said...

That is hilarious! Your poor neice may not date now until she's 30 (silver lining FTW).

amanda said...

Boom Baby! said...

HILARIOUS! Bieber Fever brings the best out in all of us!

Manic Mommy said...

Awesome! My niece is 13. It's their job to be the authority on everything. Eldest shut her the hell up!

Kim - Mommycosm said...

That? Is awesome!

Anne said...

So funny. Your niece is going to forever associate Justin Bieber with hairy balls. At least she didn't like him anyway.

Rebecca said...

Holy crap...I'll bet she never saw THAT lesson coming!!!

WorkingMom said...

SO needed that laugh - thanks!

Dysfunctional Mom said...

SNORT! Sounds like something my youngest would say. Anything that has to do with BALLS gets major laughs around here. Don't even get us started on nuts!

Kelly said...

OMG! Best post - Thanks for the laugh out loud (at my desk at work)
