I Guess It's Hereditary

I thought I was obsessed with Twilight.

I thought I had a pretty bad crush going on Robert Pattinson.

I underestimated the devotional love of the 8 year old.

MY 8 year old.

This video is from last night, when my husband brought home a framed Twilight poster, autographed by all the cast.

As my mother always said "At least she comes by it honestly!".

I have boys, so that level of hormones and girly devotion REALLY freak me out! ha!

The poor dog is like, for the love of DOG, what's wrong?

I distinctly remember having a similar reaction to my very own Madame Alexander doll. Times have changed, no?

Keyona said...

Bad Christy said...

I LOVE the hyperventilating at the end! That is possibly one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

sstahlberg said...

LOL wow! Like you said, I thought that **I** was in love with Twilight, but clearly I am no match for your daughter lol. That was adorable though. And hilarious of course.

Did you have to make her breathe into a paper bag? Good Lord, the poor kid was hyperventilating! Obviously, DAD ROCKS FOREVAH will be the slogan in your house for a very long time...

Lynette said...

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

Dad: "Crap how am I going to out do this?"

Youngest Daughter "Can't Breath"

Oldest Daughter "I am holding out for a Car"

Dog: "I didn't do anything..I just know I gonna get Blamed"

Sue: " Hubby, Thanks for the Blog Material...maybe you will get a little sumtin sumtin"

Stepson " Whatever!"

I gave my husband a Master's flag autographed by Tiger Woods a few years back and he had the EXACT same reaction.

(I kind of wish it hadn't happened at his job, though.)

Jenni Jiggety said...

Too much! You have to get her to a Jonas Brothers concert!

By the way, I am going to see the New Kids on the Block in a week, and I may or may not cry like that.

Jillian said...

Awww, the dog was concerned. That video made my life. :D I'm hoping you plan on hanging it in her room.

Trackella said...

That's so funny! She kind of reminds me of Holly Hunter in Raising Arizona...."I lo-o-o-ve them so-o-o much!"

Jen said...

that is too funny. so I guess Daddy did really, really good! What a guy.

deconstructing jen said...

That's awesome. I love your older daughters commentary, she obviously came by her sense of humor honestly too, lol. That is too funny.

BabelBabe said...

So did he win it at an auction?

So I bet he's thinking all the way home, "Man, I can't believe I just spent $250 on a stupid poster autographed by some boy that my wife keeps cardboard cut-outs of. I bet if I wore one of those cutouts of his face around the house, I could probably get lucky... I can't believe I spent $250 on a stupid poster. Should I cut the eyes out of the mask so I can see what I'm doing, or would that ruin it? Damn, $250 would've bought several rounds of golf!"

Then he brings the the poster home, everyone goes crazy, and he's thinking "Autographed poster of Rob somebody-what's-his-name... $250, Family's reaction and bonus thank-you sex.... priceless!"

Terresa said...

As my husband says in a high pitched voice, "Twilight...it brings out the little girl in us all."

:)

Lindy said...

I love the commentary and the fact that she felt it necessary to focus on the only calm one....the dog.

Boy - Dad sure was the hero though!!

Gina said...

That is hilarious. That is one to bring out at family gatherings when she's a teen.

Lizzie said...

oh the poor thing!!! i feel for her, i reacted this way when my mom and dad got me new kids on the block tickets a million years ago. i was 10 and hyperventilating.

very sweet gift by the way :)

Marla said...

good stuff...

Michelle said...

Sorry but that is hilarious! My 9 year old wants to read the series but I am not comfortable with the sexual scences in Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

That was absolutely priceless!! :)

Elisa said...

Oh wow! Just wait until she goes to concerts. She will totally be crashing the stage :-)

Jennifer said...

OMG she is so cute! And so obsessed!

Lisa-licious said...

Fabulous footage...that is what happens to me when I get a dozen fresh Krispy Kremes!

And, having read this post AFTER your most recent, I can rest assured that you are indeed a hot blonde, and I will NOT be rooming with "CHAZ" at BlogHer! WHEW!
