It kind of makes me smile that the kids and I were watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show while eating Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo. I mean, the irony. I like the fashion show, no shame in admitting it. Fun music, live acts, and, well, sequins galore. It’s my jam.
The kids have never seen it before, and asked a million and one questions.
“Why are they all wearing their underwear?”
“Do they really sell those wings in the store?”
“And those costumes?”
“Gosh, there are a lot of sequins.”
“Wow, Bruno Mars is tiny. Is he a grown-up or just really, really small?”
And, of course, my favorite was the entranced look that came over Madeline’s face when Justin Beiber came on to perform.
She was completely and utterly silent.
And if you know Madeline, you know what a feat that is.
*And we, of course, rewound the recording to watch his part twice.
