Some kids put the fun back into being an adult too, right, Miley Cyrus? I didn't watch the VMAs but I sure heard about them. There are more worthwhile things to blog about, but as a mom to small children, I don't get out much.
The first post I found on Facebook was MamaPop's This is Not My MTV . In a word: awesome.
I loved reading HuffPost's Dear Miley Letter and also BuzzFeed's What Miley Cyrus was Trying to Do Vs. What She Did.
These writers were thoughtful and for the most part encouraging. A friend brought up the point that our reaction to Miley Cyrus at the VMAs may reflect our parent's reaction to Madonna in her first heyday. I remember rocking her tousled hair bandanna headband and black jelly bracelets for a solid year. Or more.
So now I am a mama, and I have different standards, this Miley business...ugh.
As I read and watched a variety of accounts of her desperate performance at the VMAs, I suddenly realized what I needed to do to live the wild life myself. I need to once again embrace what is apparently trendy and GO FOR IT!
Won't my husband be surprised when he gets home?
