Around here and the Jordan Knight selfie story
Anna was blowing bubbles in the house and Emily didn't want any in her room. That sign cracked me up.
No need to schedule my kids anymore. They can do it themselves.
A few days ago, Allie and I were scrolling through my FB feed looking at Turks & Caicos pictures family members had posted. My sister-in-law had updated her profile picture to a selfie on the beach. There were some joking comments regarding the fact that she had taken a selfie as she's not one to do so. We continued scrolling and came across a picture of Jordan Knight with a #selfie hashtag. Here's the conversation that followed:
Allie: "Who is that?"
Me: "Jordan Knight?"
Allie: "Do you know him?"
Me: "Well. . . yeah."
Allie: "Is he famous?"
Me: "He's kind of like Justin Bieber." (They know who JB is from classmates.)
Allie: "Oh. Okay. So he goes around putting selfies on the internet?"
Me: "Um. . .yeah, I guess you could say that."
Allie: "Why would he do that?"
It's called marketing. Or selling your soul to the devil.
