S@*t Little Girls Say

– Posted in: Mommyhood, Power of Words

There is a series put on by two guys called “S@*t Girls Say” which is hilarious as are the many spin-offs that I have seen (including that of my friend, Unknown Mami). But I don’t think anything is crazy as the things my kids say. I’ve shared before but I’ll have trouble topping this edition.

My soon-to- be five year old daughter has become boy crazy. She has discovered Justin Bieber which definitely falls under the WTF category! But it gets worse, as you will see…

Bieber Fever — My Little Diva was introduced to Justin in the intro to the film “Arthur’s Christmas”. She leaned over and said he was handsome. I should have known that the rabbit hole had begun but I didn’t.  I just thought it was cute. She then found “Never Say Never” on Netflix. (Lord, help me!) The other night she ran into the living room. She had been wound up and to help her calm down before lights out, we had let her watch Netflix in bed. Usually that involves a Veggie Tale but it seems that she traveled over to Bieber-land. This conversation followed:

Little Diva: Mommy. I was trying to go to sleep but every time a song came on, I just wanted to get up and dance. I guess I can’t go to sleep to Bieber.


The next morning, she told me that she had a dream wherein she had a half Princess and half Bieber room. (Okay, I know you are all throwing up a little in your mouths — I do apologize!). She then went on to say that she really wanted a mostly Justin Bieber room. (I’m telling you now that is NOT happening!)


Lest you think that Bieber fever is the worst with which this momma has to deal, she has noticed real boys, as well. All I can say, is “Pray for me, people. Pray. For. Me. ”

Two days after Christmas, my daughter rushed into our room. (Yes, she does a lot of that. Everything is very dramatic, hence the name Little Diva.) And as you read this, know that I am thinking, “where is my camera when I need it?”

Little Diva: Mommy, I have found true love.

Me: (stifling giggles) You have?

LD: No, seriously. “T” and I have true love. We’re going to get married.

Me: (in pain trying not to burst out with laughter) You are? Well, at least “T” is a nice boy.

LD: Yes, he loves my singing. He says I have a beautiful voice.

My only consolation in the above conversation is that at least she picked him because he thought she was talented, not because he thought she was pretty. Pretty cold consolation but consolation, none-the-less.


She hadn’t brought boys in a few weeks and I was hoping that she had moved on. Two nights, however, she started a conversation this way:

Little Diva: “B” thinks he is going to marry me.

Me: He does?

LD: Yes, every day. But I’m not going to marry him. He’s my boyfriend but I’m not his girlfriend.

(Inappropriate laughter from husband and me)

Me: Then, whose girlfriend are you?

LD: Nobody’s.

Me: (Sigh of relief) Good. (Remembering previous conversation) But what about “T”?

LD: Oh yeah, he’s my boyfriend.

Me: Oh…

LD: Can we stop talking about this boyfriend/girlfriend thing?

Me: Yes, yes, we can.

And this is just the beginning.

I know! AARGH!

Way too funny! My goodness, the drama with little girls. My son has been loved and then dropped (DROPPED!) by at least a few girls in his class.

Imagine if I gave him the Bieber cut.

The Bieber thing cracks me up. I do not see it all. But I bet your little man is good with the ladies.

Ah true love! My mam frequently reminds me of my first love …… I was 2, he was 6 when we declared our intention to marry.

Traci January 24, 2012, 6:21 pm

Well, I guess I can be happy we made it to four then — haha!

One of these days, you may end up wishing Justin Bieber was your main boy problem. Ha. :)

Traci January 24, 2012, 6:21 pm

I fear you are correct!!!

Bieber fever is out of control, I really feel for you.

And, your daughter is WAY TOO CUTE. But if she’s boy crazy now? I fear for her teenage years!

At least she picked T as her boyfriend because he recognizes her talent!

Traci January 24, 2012, 6:22 pm

I know! I am terrified. Start lighting candles now — heck, light up a whole church because I am going to need it!


Traci January 24, 2012, 7:02 pm

So sweet. (At least now it is) My 4 year old niece is boy crazy too. It’s so funny and I’m so happy that she feels comfortable to speak her mind about it (like your daughter he he.) Hopefully they both will stay on the trend throughout their life (I know it sounds horrifying to know the things she may say, but imagine the girls who don’t talk to their mothers.)

Traci January 24, 2012, 7:38 pm

I agree! I would much rather her tell me things that I don’t want to hear than for her to only tell me what she thinks I want to hear.

Here’s to our “chatty Cathies” (may they always remain so.

My daughter has (so far) not ventured into boy crazy land. I’m thankful EVERY.SINGLE.DAY for that.

Sending lots of prayers your way!

LMAO! Oh my goodness Traci!!!! Little Diva reminds me of my granddaughter. I’ll be praying for you as long as you are praying for me too! LOL Emma is 7 now and seems to be moving on beyond the Bieber Fever phase…. but oh my goodness!
