Justin Bieber ruined my day.

It's not the gray hairs that suddenly appeared and started mulitiplying last year, because let's be honest, who didn't get grays from the craptacular that was 2010.

It's not the lovely new denotation of advanced maternal age, that was added to my other million and one pregnancy risk factors.

It's this picture of Justin Bieber and his parents at the Grammy's.
Both of which, come to find out, are YOUNGER than me.
Which made me realize I'm old.

Cry cry cry.
Baby baby baby.

*I also realized that my kids are slackers.

  4. Oh dear. I'm not going to ask how old you are, because that wouldn't be nice, but I want to ask how old Bieb's parents are, so I know if I'm older, and I'm pretty sure I am....

  7. That's so funny that you posted this because I have had the same problem. I'm so sad that I think I've raised a bunch of useless humans. I don't mean that I don't love them, but I really feel like I've failed them in teaching them to work and to participate as a family. And that picture, which I saw earlier in the week, didn't help. Those parents are so young.

  10. Get those kids out there earning their keep RIGHT NOW.

    In all seriousness though... that is depressing... on SO MANY LEVELS!

  11. A. You are right that 2010 was craptacular.
    B. If I had kids when I was 17, I could easily already have grandkids. Instead I have a 5 and 7 year-old.
    C. You have a home filled with 2 parents, lots of love and the Lord and that is worth more than a teen pop star any day.

    But I'll keep my three little slackers!!:)

  16. oh my goodness I just rolled on the floor. Thank you that was great!

  17. Hahahaha...my friend and I JUST talked about this today too!
    My bff said.."she's the SAME AGE AS ME".
    Then we tried to figure out how our kids are toddlers and her son is 'the Biebs'.
    Don't think about it too much ~ it's not healthy.

  19. I think your kids need to start making some YouTube videos! ;D

    Thanks for the laugh!

  20. Hilarious! I may have ruined my keyboard since I spit water all over it when I read that your kids are slackers though! Totally worth the laugh!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Laughed out loud. Maybe even snorted when I just read that. Thank you, now back to my regular programming..LOL

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well crap... that makes me feel old! Here I am older than the Biebs parents & I still have one in diapers... sigh...

    Thanks for the laugh this evening!! I needed it! :-)

  23. when your kids grow up to be rock stars, please keep your girls covered a little better than JB's mom

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am always bothered now when I go to the doctors and the doctor is younger then me.. that is what makes me feel old.

    ReplyDelete
  25. i just want to say...
    phew, mrs.bieber is older than i. but, not by much.
    secondly, every day i wake up i feel like i'm 20, so it doesn't really matter.
    thirdly, her boobs are about to pop out of her junior's prom dept. dress, so don't worry 'bout it.
    you would never let that happen.
    hugs!

  26. Laugh out loud funny! Even read it to my hubby ~ which is a blogging risk factor ~ but can only be done when the post is Hi.Lar.I.Ous.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I had to go find their ages... yup... I'm older than them (and have the gray hairs to prove it!)

    ReplyDelete
  28. okay you may be older, but you look WAY BETTER than her! seriously if she takes one breath her dress looks like it is going to fall down!

    ReplyDelete
  29. OK . . . the funny thing is that when I looked up their ages, I felt relieved and said, "whew! I'm younger than them" . . . but then I remembered that I just turned FORTY, not THIRTY!! Seriously . . . I keep thinking I'm thirty! I guess that is a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Even worse? My oldest child is far older that JB...I'm just old...I must own it. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  31. seriously funny !! thanks for the laugh, i needed it today.

    ReplyDelete
  32. he for sure hired those people with his gazillions of dollars. they don't actually LOOK like him. that's what i'm choosing to believe.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Biebers momma is fugly! You are one HAWT momma Julie, advanced maternal age or not!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I HEAR YA!
    Taylor Swift made me cry too...
    not sure if it is the "I wish I had done that at her age" thing, or the "holy crap I am old and have nothing to show for it" thing, or the "my kids are so unmotivated" thing"

    or perhaps it is ALL OF IT

    but we still rock, sister
    no one is going to hand us a Grammy, but deep down...we know WE ROCK!

  35. Hysterical! My wrinkles are my joy marks!! Bring em! My kids are wonderful slacker too!! Wouldn't have it any other way!

    ReplyDelete
  36. great, now my day is ruined too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This was too funny!! From a mom who just had her 4th baby at age 40 I completely get what you're feeling. Best thing I ever did though, I feel younger than ever!

    ReplyDelete
  38. LOL! I actually laughed out loud at your comment about your kids being slackers! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. YOU made me LAUGH OUT LOUD!!! I also added a CLAP because you called your kids slackers!! Ha ha!

    Have a GREAT DAY!

    ReplyDelete
  40. This very well could be the funniest thing I've ever seen. I love "my kids are slackers" I love this post, it totally made my day. (it's a nasty day, thank you)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hilarious! If it makes you feel better, I'm right there with you.

    ReplyDelete
  42. LOL This post is hilarious!!!! But don't be sad, you're not alone: I'm turning 31 today, 22 weeks pregnant and suffering from gestational diabetes. We should go out and drink away our blues (after we deliver our little angels, of course). :-P Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh geez ... that whole "advanced maternal age" thing.... blah. We are thinking about having #3 but I'm 37 now ... nail biter. I think about that "being old" thing every day. Good times.

    As for the Biebs ... can you imagine the pressure of being his mom? Wowza

    ReplyDelete
  44. That is so funny! I just keep getting older than everyone...and I remember when I was younger than Olympic gymnasts!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ha ! I needed this laugh ! I can relate ... Except that I'm even older ...41...and 18 weeks pregnant . My doctor promised to take the AMA off my chart ! Best of luck my fellow AMA buddy ...hope you are feeling well ...and pooey on those titles. ! Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks. I needed cheering up. Grrrr.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow! She's just one standing ovation away from delivering a set of "twins!"

    ReplyDelete
  48. How old were they when they had him? 12?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hahaha! Don't blame it on the Biebs, hot mama! Bieber fever has hit this house hard :)

  52. LOL! Julie - you crack me up. ...people always think my dad is my boyfriend and my mom is my sister -- and then stare blankly when we must correct them. awkward.

    ReplyDelete
  53. oh, and I agree with Heather ... put the girls away, Mrs. Bieber. away!

    ReplyDelete
  54. That is sooo funny! Now, I've just spent the past 15 minutes googling their ages. I feel old too.

  56. I thought I was a loyal stalker to your blog but did I miss something or are you keeping something from us that is none of our business to start with? :) This comment has me wondering..... "It's not the lovely new denotation of advanced maternal age, that was added to my other million and one pregnancy risk factors."

    ReplyDelete
  57. You are hilarious! This was an entertaining post. lol

    I just have to add, some of the comments here are immature.

    It doesn't do any of us any good to call his mom ugly. Its rude and childish. She looks great but the cleavage is ridiculous. Whatever happened to modesty?

    ReplyDelete
  58. He has ruined many of mine too. Why don't any of my children play drums on that darned kitchen chair?

    ReplyDelete
  59. you are hilarious! and that is so crazy. they look like sibling!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh, you are too funny! This made me laugh...then I had to go find out how old they were! Just a teensy-weensy bit older than me, phew! But I have babies and they have a 16 year old heart-throb, I can't imagine! Hope you are feeling good! Take care of yourself...and those slacker kids oh yours! ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hahaha I love this! Made me laugh out loud :)
    And you have the most beautiful family EVER!!
