Thanks to a far more in tune friend than me, I was able to get my girls tickets to see Selena Gomez in concert on October 28th. I’m pretty excited about it, because I feel a little “mom-of-the-yearish” right now. Hello? It’s Selena Gomez. That’s like huge if you happen to be 7 and almost 9. So here is my dilemma. At first I was thinking I would surprise them on the 28th. You know. Let’s go for a drive girls and then “Oops, how did we end up here. Let’s go see what’s happening inside?” To which, I’d be greeted with shrieking and cries of “You are the best mom ever!” and then I’d roll my eyes and be humble and say “Yeah, I know”. Then I started to think, maybe I’m robbing them of the fun of the anticipation. You know, the build-up of excitement. Two months of listening to Selena Gomez non-stop. Talking about Selena Gomez non-stop. Discussing what to wear to aforementioned concert, non-stop. I mean, that’s fun too, right? So, I’m stuck…in the moment…bahahahaha, see how I did that? Stuck in the Moment? Selena Gomez song? Anyhoo, I’m stuck in the moment on what to do. Tell and let the build up begin so that they’re frenzied Selena Gomez fans on the 28th, or not tell and surprise them into shock. Tell? Not tell?
What would you do?
