Taking one for the team

On Sunday, my brother and sister (I know it's SIL but she's my sister.) came over for brunch. My husband commented on how he's making sure he's up with all the 'new music' so that he can embarrass our daughter in the future.
This lead to an interesting discussion on how our Dad took us to a million concerts and events and how he probably wouldn't have taken us to them if not for us being his offspring. In other words, parents do things for their kids they wouldn't normally do.
Shell out $$$ to see Disney on Ice, not once but three times, in our memory.
Taking us to any 'live action' show based on a Saturday morning cartoon.
Taking us to see a Dirty Dancing tour.
Taking us to see the New Kids on the Block, Debbie Gibson, Kool and the Gang, Herman's Hermits (it was a phase), REM, Rolling Stones, The Monkees and a slew of other shows. I think he may have taken me to a Cure show too. Man, that's love.
TG has already experienced her first musical theatre show and play. She's been to more outdoor concerts than most 1 year olds and she's scheduled for her first indoor seated concert next month. Who knows what DH and I are going to take for the team.
Jonas Brothers v3.0? Some large stuffed animal on ice? Standing online in the cold to get an autograph of the latest Zach Efron? (That's how you spell it, right?) Man, I'm starting to feel old.
