Another Trend I Was Not On Top Of & a Giveaway!!

OK so we have established that me + trends are like strangers passing in the night.
Neither the two will meet.
At least WHILE said trend is, well, trendy.Case in point:My friend Jen texted me a while back and asked if my teenager was into these rubber bandy type bracelet things.
My first reaction was to just say no.
Because she is 13 and I don’t know what she likes anymore.
I mean that in the nicest mommy way.
I think she will LOVE this cute little floral shirt….she hates it.
I think she will just DIE over this cool nail polish color….”mom that is so last season”.
So I really thought, no way does my daughter like to make bracelets.
That was so two years ago.

Umm no.

As I yelled into the other room, “Annie, do you like those rubber bandy bracelets that you make in kits?”
Waiting for the NO MOM, JEEZ. THAT WAS SO FOUR MONTHS AGO.

Teenager- “OMG YESSSSS!!!”
Me- “Really?”
Teenager- “YESSS EVERYONE IS WEARING THEM/MAKING THEM AT SCHOOL.YOU CAN MAKE THEM IN SCHOOL COLORS AND THEY ARE SO COOL. WAIT. HOW DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS??”

Apparently there is this thing called Rainbow Loom.
You’ve heard of them?
So it’s like TOTALLY popular with all sorts of ages.
There are like, lines forming around corners of toy stores everywhere to get little hands on them.

This case was bought for my daughter by “Auntie Jen” and doesn’t come with the normal Rainbow Loom supplies.
And she personalized it which was so sweet and Annie loved that.
See all those little rubber bands?
THEY WILL BE IN YOUR HOME.
Be advised.

 

My daughter knew exactly what to do with the kit.
I sat there with a humwannahumwannahumwanna look on my face.

Seriously?
Is there a handbook they give teenagers when we aren’t looking as to what is cool and what is not?
AND WHERE IN THE HECK WAS IT WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER??

I have no idea how she made the bracelet.
She did.
Because secret handbook.
Oh yes and there were directions in the package.

Just go ask your child.
I am sure there is a bracelet or two or 1000 in their room right now.
Go on.
I will wait.

 

So here is where I come in to make you the coolest mom or dad on the block.
I am giving one of these kits to one of you.
Along with the secret handbook.
That was a lie.
I DON’T HAVE THE SECRET HANDBOOK, REMEMBER???
I am only giving away the kit.
You will have to go out and get a case for all of those rubber bands.
DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU.

 

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED

Good luck and you are welcome.

    I rarely enter contests, but I think Cheerio would like this. THough I'm not sure about the little rubber bands all over the house. Does it come with a maid?

    I'm not going to enter because I would be the one making all these bracelets, but what a cool idea! They remind me of those shaped rubber bands kids used to wear (what, five years ago), but when you put the cute kitty cat on your arm it just looked like a rubber band. Much cooler that you can make them in your own colors!!!

    I saw something about these on FB a while back that featured the Today Show showing them off. I shared the video with my girls and they begged to go to Michael's right away. My youngest, who is never really into the trends, jumped at the chance to come hope with this. We ended up getting it the next weekend and my youngest spent HOURS working on these. She made one for every cousin she has and sent them out via the USPS. They were a huge hit with the recipients. I just love this product and love it even more since it was a family idea and operation. Thanks so much for the chance!

    LOL. Funny thing, my son came home with a bracelet today that looks like this. He said a girl made one for him in their after school program. It looks like a lot of fun to make.
