I'm a Good Mom!

My Erin will be 13 this year. I can't believe it! I had to think of something to give her that she would never forget. And I found it.

She and I are going to the Drake Bell concert. Just the 2 of us.

I'm a good Mom, right? Or am I going because I want to relive the Bobby Sherman concert Anne and I went to in 1969? Am I going because I never got to see the Beatles up close in concert? Or am I going to remember the time I saw Andy Gibb or Shaun Cassidy or even, dare I say it? Frank Sinatra!!!

I asked Anne if it would be okay if I listened to something else on my iPod at the concert or if that would be RUDE!! But really. Can't I listen to "Shadow Dancin" or "Julie Do You Love Me" or whatever Shaun Cassidy sang or "All the Way"? I mean -- you know -- to take me back?

Nah. I'll enjoy it. He's cute (really -- look at him!), talented and Erin LOVES him. She and I will see him together and she'll never forget it.

Neither will I.

I cannot believe that you didn't include your favorite soft-rock singer, "the performer of his generation," the man against whom you judge all other concerts. Yes, I'm talking about Gino Vanelli.

Aw, you sound like a great mom. I took my son to see his idols (Alice in Chains) three times in the two years before he left for college. We had a blast, and I know he'll never forget it. I loved it, too. (Because of my son, they are my favorite band as well, so it wasn't exactly a hardship.)

As for Drake, I happened upon this post because of a Google alert. I adore him myself, even though I'm well beyond his demographic, I'm sure. I actually really love his music. I'd love to go to one of his concerts! I keep checking to see if he's adding any more dates for this summer. My 23-year-old daughter also likes him, so if he is touring anywhere near us, she's going with me as my beard. ;)

I do think it would be a bit rude to listen to something else during the concert, though. hehe

Have fun!
