Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi show….

It is official; I am a big wha wha mommy!

I just got home from the Puffy AmiYumi concert with my daughter and two of her friends. It was at The Showbox, which is a venue The Posies have played a zillion times as well as Big Star and about 50% of all of the other show I have seen in WA state. Every now and then they have an all ages shows early on Saturdays. My daughter is a huge fan and coerced me into taking her and her friends.

The show was actually pretty great. The lights, the energy, it was all pretty fantastic to tell the truth. Between songs Ami and Yumi had cards written out to help them with their English. They would read off of them little anecdotes about their tour in very broken English, it was precious. They ended the show with a really cool cover of that Greenday song that was so popular a few years back. It starts “Do you have the time, to listen to me whine…” Now that is a cover I would buy on a single. Adorable like kittens and bunnies!

So what do I do during all of this rocking out? About ten seconds into the first song, I look at my girl and her friends dancing and having a great times and look over the sea of kids their age and I get all teary eyed. It suddenly occurred to me that in a few short years it will be Darian and her friends going to this club to see shows. The torch is getting closer to being passed.
Where did the time go? It went so fast! My daughter is already double digits people, DOUBLE DIGITS!
I am so proud of her, she is everything I could ever wish for in a daughter and then some, but I am so dearly not ready for her to be a teenager and then an adult. I was crying at a Japanese pop show people! They sing cartoon songs!

One saving grace is that when I got home Ken called and we talked about little Aden coming to town soon. I get to play Auntie for her a couple of nights soon, so that will help me to put things in perspective. I am excited about seeing little Aden again. She is such a doll! I bet she is even close to walking soon! Her 1st birthday is coming up as well.

There is that time again, zooming on by…
