Do You Heart Nick?

I imagine, at times, it's hard to be my daughter. As she's talking about a boy, I always ask if he's cute. She always pauses for half a second before she answers no. I tease that she never gives me an inch. But, I think the truth is more like she just isn't into looks, neither hers nor a boy's. Maybe that will change. Maybe not.

I embarrass her when I try to get her to be more friendly and speak up. She has two friends (that I know of) who are boys. One is just as shy & quiet as she. The other, well, I don't really know him. What I do know, I like. He knows how to spell her name (as does the other friend, that is very important to me). He asks about her auditions when she's never told him that she's had one. One morning, he was in the car in front of us at school. I told Lamb to hurry so she could walk in with him. She slowed down. I told her when she got out to just holler out "hey" to him. She stared at me through the window until he was too far away. I had the audacity to suggest to her to say hi to him at Bubba's Sis' son's band concert. Luckily, BFF supported me (so she could meet him).

We tease her that Nick Jonas is the perfect guy for her. They have a lot in common! And during baseball season, before Craig Biggio retired, Conor Biggio was the guy for her. She just laughs. She never really plays along. Although, one time, when being teased about Conor, she wondered how she could marry Nick if she were dating another guy.


Yes. She never gives me an inch. It's become a sort of game between us. Imagine my delight when during Thanksgiving, I made the comment that Lamb was in love with a vampire and a salesman. And she laughed and said, "I know, right?!"

So, of course, she had to get some "gag" gifts. ;)
Who knows what lurks in that beautiful mind of hers? She'll never tell.
I wonder what she'd say if she knew I was secretly arranging her marriage? ;)

Those are such great photos of her! My daughter is 12, and she's rather shy. She hearts Edward, too, but she prefers Joe to Nick.

We so need that T-shirt at our house!

Was that Rosalie's choker?????

Ok, I don't heart Nick, but I TOTALLY HEART Edward, and the tshirt, of course. ;) And I, just so you know, am also a brunette. And I love Lamb for her boy attitude... it seems kind of like mine when I was that age... to me, talking about boys I liked made it real, and that made it a possibility that nothing would EVER come of it... so I kept much to myself when it came to boys. I still do. Except for Edward. :)

She's such a cute and cool girl! I remember when my Mom would tease me about boys...yikes...it is tough!

forgetfulone, I think she prefers Nick to Joe because she likes to be different. Everyone likes Joe, including me! ;)

Valarie, good eye! That is an "authentic" Twilight choker complete with the Cullen crest.

Library Girl, I love her attitude also. I also think she'll keep to herself. I just don't see her as the "flamboyant" type when it comes to her actions around boys. We shall see tho...

"Wilma", thank you! I happen to agree with you. :) And, I think I'd die if she teased me back about boys. I'm not ready for that stage quite yet.

The shirt came from cafepress.com. They have a lot of cool stuff!

Hahaha, that's hilarious!! She has a great personality - she'll make you proud one day in her choice for a husband I am sure!! I love all the pictures. She's so pretty in blue! =)

I thought I was all about Edward etal but GASP! I didn't catch the locket until the comment section!

Lamb rocks. You're a pretty cool mom too.

Those gifts are great. She's a doll to play along.

Misty Dawn said...

I ♥ her! She's just amazing.

Oh she is stunning! What cute gifts and how fun she is to play along. I want so much to get into my sons' heads and know what is in there (I am assuming something is in there!). My daughter freely opens up about guys - not so much the boys. But how could they not be swarming over Lamb looking so gorgeous. I hope that arranged marriage works out for you!
