Would you say that she has a ‘crush’ or that she’s ‘obsessed’?
What’s the collective’s gut reaction?
My daughter is a tweener and I’m starting to think maybe her ‘crush’ is heading in an unhealthy direction. She’s in “Love” with Taylor Lautner. She has her entire bedroom wall-papered in his pictures, including the ceiling. She has a life sized cut out of him, she refers to herself with the last name Lautner or Mrs. Lautner, she has cyber stalked him (no I’m not even kidding) to the point that she asked me for my credit card number so that she could buy an Intellus property/e-mail/phone search. (um, no!) yet somehow she has what she thinks is a valid property/tax record with an address.
I took her bank out of her room when this happened and deposited every last dime into a her account (overdue to do that anyway) I was afraid she’d buy a bus ticket and head out to California. She has said to me with a straight face (though I can never tell if she’s pulling my chain) that once he meets her, Taylor will without a doubt fall in love with her… and then she smiles and I don’t know if she’s serious or not,
Once I told her that the chances of her actually meeting him and holding a conversation with him were so small, that she shouldn’t really get her hopes up. She looked at me and said with confidence, “you wait and see, Mom. I will get to meet him one of these days”
She’s still doing very well in school, she still has lots of friends, she’s doing well in every other way…do you think she’s obsessed and do you think it’s getting out of hand?
