Happy Birthday, Justin Bieber.

Today I got an email from Amber letting me know that today is Justin Bieber’s birthday.  I don’t really care too much about him, but the children all have Bieber Fever.

After reading the email, I spotted the biggest fan in the room, and asked her if she knew who’s birthday it was.  She shrugged her shoulders and asked who it was.  Here is the conversation that followed:

Me: Who is your favorite person?

Child: You!  Is it your birthday?

Me: Nope – I just had my birthday.  Who is your second favorite person?

Child: Mrs. T!

Me: Not her birthday… Who is your third favorite person?


Me: Yup, he is 17 today.

A different Child: He is sure growing up!  Soon he will be 18, 19, then 21.  Then he’ll be all grown up and he will go to high school!

Yet another Child: Are you taking us to his birthday party???

While I did not take them to his b-day party (which I’m sure he would have LOVED to have them at…) we did have a Justin Bieber dance party at the end of the day.

This is what I saw on the back of one child’s work…

I think this drawing nicely reflects his new hair cut...

I am mostly just relieved that I still beat him on the ladder of favoritism… WHEW!
