How to make a 13 year old girl happy

    We have had a crazy summer.  My sister had her knee replaced and Sarah and I helped my sister at the farm when my brother in law was at work.  First night in, a goat caught her arm with his horn and injured her growth plate.  Before I had to leave my job, I had paid for Baltimore Raven's cheerleading camp for her (awesome week, where they actually get trained by the actual cheerleaders, and get to cheer a pre-season game.).  She had done it the year prior, and LOVED it.  Unfortunately, she was in a cast and could not go.  They gave me a full refund.

    I had been planning on taking her to Ocean City, Maryland for a weekend trip, but started playing around looking at StubHub for Justin Bieber tickets.  I spent a little more than I had gotten back in the refund, but oh my God, the reaction was so worth it.

    So, off to DC we go in the beginning of November...with the wrist recasted, because she injured in it gym...dancing to Bieber.

    Wow!  I didn't think it was possible to make a 13 yo girl happy...I thought they were just generally bitchy!  Way to go Mom!  

    At least you won't have to do with Bieber what I did when I took my little brother to a Blue Oyster Cult/Rainbow concert when he was little:  a valium, ear plugs and a cocktail, I slept though all but the part where the 21 yo sailor on my other side kept poking me to ask how I could be asleep!
    Bite me, cupcake!
