October Brings… A One Direction Concert!
I can't believe October is here! Where did September go? For that matter, where did August, July and June go?
My "baby" is 18 now. That's another "hard to believe." She had her birthday in September. And Wednesday night, I did what was probably my last concert chaperone duty. I drove my daughter and two friends to a MARTA station. We took the subway into Atlanta. Had dinner at the CNN Center. Then I dropped them at the Georgia Dome for the One Direction concert. No, I did not splurge on a 1D ticket for myself. And I did not want to further damage my already-not-so-great hearing (I once blew out a set of speakers in my car when I was a teen!)
So, I parked myself over at the Georgia World Congress Center with other waiting parents. I had brought a printed manuscript to read through. Well, about the time I started to read, a mother at the next table and I spoke. I can't even remember what was said. But four hours later, we were still talking!
We had such a good time. So many things in common with our daughters as well as our older children. As we talked, our girls sent some photos. Actually, her daughter was better about communicating than mine was! Although, I did get a text or two. :) Near the end, we moved outside where we could hear the music (and the LOUD, WILD screaming fans) rocking the Dome.

It was a gorgeous evening in Georgia. And the girls had a fantastic time.
My daughter agreed to share some photos with me so I could share with you.

And two of the crowd favorites with the girls (on the big screen during the show)…
And Harry Styles...

Despite the crush while riding MARTA and arriving home at 1:40 a.m. on a school night--during midterms, we had a wonderful time. I wouldn't trade these opportunities for anything! Those of you with younger kids, time really flies by. Enjoy every moment.
NEWS FLASH! My new book, The Guy Next Door, is finally available in e-book format as well as print!
