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