7 Things I Am Way Too Old For

When I was a kid, maybe a teenager, I remember hearing my mother say she was too old for a certain type of clothing. If my memory serves correctly it was a sleeveless top I suggested that she wear in the heat of the summer and she said she was too old for sleeveless tops. I remember thinking, in my infinite wisdom of youth, complete lack of understanding, that if I was hot I was damn well going to wear a sleeveless top so I could cool off and not sweat myself to death!

    How To Stop Your Kids From Catching Bieber Fever

    Belieb it or not, Justin’s behavior can be a big influence on your kids.
