Ok, so I know I've already told you guys a little bit about meeting One Direction in New York City last weekend -- but please bear with me because I'm still being the biggest dork about what a fun experience it was.
And initially, I think I was really just freaking out about meeting them because I knew it was something my 7-year-old son was going to remember for the rest of his life. I mean, the kid has a One Direction toothbrush that plays "One Thing," for crying out loud, so he's more than a bit of a fan.
But somewhere between the beginning and end of our question and answer session with the band, I became a total "One Directioner" too -- and I'm not the least bit embarrassed to admit it.
And it turns out I'm not the only non-teenage female who is crazy for these dudes.
While chatting with Niall Horan and Harry Styles, I asked them whether or not they've ever had encounters with moms who are just as wild for them as their daughters are.
Their answer was yes -- and Niall even told me that he had a mom give him her phone number one time. (True story. No, it wasn't me.)
OMG. Can't you just picture someone who is no doubt an "old lady" in their eyes trying to slip one of them her digits? Priceless.
Although, after Niall told his story, Harry piped in with, "Sometimes they're worse." He talked about how sometimes at their concerts he'll look down to see the moms flirting with them and then look over at the daugthers and they have their heads buried in their hands out of sheer humiliation.
OMG. Can you believe that moms throw themselves at them more than the young girls? (Oh man. Guess I'd better behave myself if my son and I ever wind up attending a 1D show. I wouldn't want to ruin his night.)
But I can't lie -- it's really hard not to swoon around these dudes. They're just so ... dreamy.
So, there you have it. Some of us moms love 1D just as much as any screaming 15-year-old girl -- and we're not the least bit ashamed about it.
Or at least I don't care what anyone thinks about me going gaga over a boy band. (Call me, Harry.)
Are you a One Directioner mom?
