Taylor Swift - from afar
I failed as a Mom on this one......
Had planned on getting Paula tickets to Taylor Swift. When it was time to buy the tickets...talk about sticker shock! $150 a ticket! That is $300 for the both of us...I couldn't do it! It seemed so wasteful. I explained to Paula that we can't just blow $300 for 2 hours of music....she took it well and didn't make a fuss at all.
On the night of the concert, we totally forgot about it....then heard on the news that Taylor was about to come out on stage. We decided to head down to the ballpark where Taylor was having the concert....knowing that it was an open baseball field, we figured we could park the car close by to catch some of her hits....when driving around to find parking, Paula spotted Taylor on the jumbotron and people hanging out on the street by a pub to watch. We decided to stay to watch!
We caught the whole show minus 2 songs. She cried and squealed with so much excitement...I felt so horrible...damn it. It was worth $300 to be inside...with all the fans screaming and the neon lightshow.....Taylor's fabulous costume changes....and the fireworks!!!! UGH, I felt soooooo bad!!! Next year...I promise, Paula!

Chi Tram...Paula really is such a sweetheart.The fact that you guys still got to enjoy it, will make it all the more special when it comes to the next artist she loves... That picture of her peeking in with a smile tugged at my heart...

I laughed at the idea that you thought you were a terrible mom for not spending $300 for a couple hours of Swifty. I wanna give you a hug. :)
