The further adventures of JT

Madalyn likes Justin Timberlake. Likes likes Justin Timberlake. I am not sure how it all started. But she has had a thing for him for years. And years is a long time when one is only not quite eight years old to begin with.Two years ago, she asked for him for Christmas. Well. Actually. She asks for him for Christmas every year. And she's already asked for him for her birthday this year. But...two years ago I remembered that I could probably find a Justin Timberlake doll. Action figure? On ebay. One from his N'Sync days. Back when he kinda had a fro.

Madalyn loves her JT. I did a blog post about him last summer. When I discovered where she had been keeping him.

In her panty drawer. Because if you had JT. Wouldn't that be where you would keep him?

And then this past Christmas, I got her a Justin pillowcase. So, now the doll. Action figure? Stays with the panties. And she sleeps with the image. Remember. She's not quite eight.

And then last week. It seems that Justin found a new spot to hang out. He came out from under the panties. And into a basket. On Madalyn's night stand. And with him is some lip gloss. JT has the perfect place to store it.Hey. JT. Is that a lipstick in your pocket? Or are you just happy to see me?

Somehow. I am beginning to think that the Warioland Shake-it game may be the least of our worries.

So...what about you? Do your kids have celebrity crushes? Do you have an inappropriate celebrity crush? Do you remember your first celebrity crush?

Alright, that lipstick comment was EXACTLY what I was thinking.

We don't have celebrity crushes here. Thank goodness. It's bad enough that I already have 9 year old worms smiling their dopey smiles at my precious 8 year old!

lori said...

oh, i love me some JT! and I love that he lives in your house! hee hee!

Elena said...

LOLLLL!!!! Oh....sigh...good laugh. Kat you are a crack up and a half.

Elena said...

Whoops forgot my 1st celebrity crush. Ricky Shroeder and I dreamed (when I was in 2nd grade) that he met me in the bathroom and we kissed. While our lips were locked we spidermanned up the sides of the bathroom stall and could kiss above everyone so no one could see us. LOL!

Mom Taxi Julie said...

I think JT is hot too (NOW, not then lol).

Swirl Girl said...

when I was a kid - I had Bobby Sherman posters and David Cassidy everything all over my room.

My 9 year old squeels at the Jonas Brothers ..I don't think she even knows why, but she does because she thinks she is supposed to.

{I wish I had a JT dollie in my panty drawer too :)

LadyStyx said...

I'm with MTJ...*whew* the impure thoughts I get with that FIRST photo *sigh*

Growing up...mine was Shaun Cassidy for the most part.... although there were SEVERAL other guys gracing the walls of my room.

ChicagoLady said...

I agree, JT is much hotter now than he was back during NSYNC.

I'm trying to remember my first celebrity crush, and I honestly can't say whether I had one or not. I didn't really have posters of guys on my wall, that I can remember. Of course, I may have forgotten everything, now that old age has settled in.

Angie's Spot said...

That JT, you've gotta watch that guy. He's a player.

My first celebrity crush was River Phoenix. Oh, how I created many a notebook full of his pics from Tiger Beat and Bop and stalked him when he came to my city for a concert with his band. You've read my blog entry about that right? Anyway, he didn't live up to my expectations, but I'm still sad that he died so young. Sigh.

And yes, I am 100% inappropriately attracted to a certain young Mr. Pattinson. (Shh, don't tell anyone that I've started collecting a notebook full of pics from GQ and People) Ahem.

John Deere Mom said...

Is that chapstick in your pocket or are you happy to see me?! Ha! You are cracking me up. JT can come visit my underwear (drawer or otherwise) anytime he wants!

D said...

Well, at least Madalyn has great taste!!! I, too, have loved JT since his *NSYNC days!!!

Jen said...

So, I am thinking that he is happy to see you.

(Totally cracking myself up over here)

Brandy said...

I'm not sure if he was my first, but I loved me some Michael J Fox when I was young. I never missed an episode of Family Ties and I watched all of his silly movies.

I even had a framed picture on my wall of him.

Hey at least JT is hot!

Rhea said...

My boys won't admit to crushes yet. But they do watch Hannah Montana on the sly...and Donny admitted he thinks Ashley Tisdale is pretty. lol

You need to do a Flat Stanley kind of JT project. Send JT to Texas to visit us, see where he goes...then send him somewhere else...

Susie said...

My older daughter liked The Backstreet Boys for a while. My youngest is too young for that right now. My first celebrity crush was Donny Osmond. I loved his purple socks:-)

Darcy @ lwm3b said...

Hmmm... how does a 7 yo even know who that is, much less know about him for years? That's some impressive current event knowledge for a little girl.

My boys? Unless it's a Disney/Pixar character or someone from Star Wars, they've never heard of 'em. My boys wouldn't even know who JT is. They did finally ask who Hannah Montana is after seeing her on clothes at the Wal-Mart. But they don't seem interested in girls. And even if they were, they girl better like Legos, swords or Cars. :)

I think I'd like to keep it this way for another umm... 10 years, maybe?

My first celebrity crush? Hmmmm... I think Karate Kid. Maybe? Oh wait... Lee Montgomery. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Google him. ;)

Brian and Staci said...

My boys are so oblivioius to anything other than Star Wars right now :) Seriously, we are going to have to talk about boys and girls and that there are really a lot of differences :) So, that would be a no on my kids having celebrity crushes...I don't even think they notice Princess Lea??!!! Sheesh! Do I have an inappropriate celebrity crush, hmmmm...I do love Patrick Dempsey's hair :) But my husband's hair is pretty excellent too :o I reeeeally thought Kirk Cameron was going to marry me if he could just meet me when I was about 13!!!! He had pretty great hair too. I am guessing hair is a big thing for me...who knew? I didn't :) Your Madalyn CRACKS me up and your lipstick in your pocket comment sent me to the floor :) (Like your little Longaberger basket for JT!)

Shannon said...

I don't think either of my girls have crushes yet...

My 1st celeb crush was on Joey McIntyre (from New Kids on the Block!)

I'll admit Robert Pattinson as being an inappropriate celebrity crush of mine.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Do your kids have celebrity crushes? Hmmm... nothing overt yet.

Do you have an inappropriate celebrity crush? I don't think there's anything inappropriate about my love for Hugh Jackman.

Do you remember your first celebrity crush? Hmmm... Ricky Schroder and David Hasselhoff.

Romi said...

Last year I had a crush on Julian McMahon. This year I do not. Don't know what happened...came to my senses maybe?

The crush that never goes away is Jamie from Outlander...if only he were real.

Your daughter's crush is absolutely adorable. My 19 year old niece has the same crush. She met J.T. when he was dating Cameron Diaz. He was in an ice cream shop in San Diego and my niece flipped out. She talked to him and hugged him and said he smelled absolutely divine. She said he was incredibly nice and told her not to be nervous because he was just a working guy. She said he was everything she hoped he would be and more. Another fan was so nervous she dropped her ice cream upon seeing him and he went inside the store and bought her another one. Nice guy.

I knew I liked lipstick for a reason:)

Heather said...

You are HYSTERICAL. Did they make that pillow case with a Zac Efron? I need one. I really do.

Rachael said...

Hilarious! My first celebrity crush was Jonathan Brandis when I was in middle school. I used to watch SeaQuest and it was my favorite show, I was totally "in love" with him. Somewhere, I still have the posters I had up tucked away in a magazine because every time I find them I think they are too hilarious to get rid of.

My inappropriate celebrity crushes? I THINK they are both legal now, but Jesse McCartney and Zac Efron.

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Okay that is funny! No celebrity crushes unless you count my son's love of Minnie Mouse and my daughters obsession with Tinkerbell. Thankfully they haven't been exposed to much else!

Becky P. said...

Please allow me to introduce myself. The future mother-in-law of Nick Jonas. Yep, that's the celebrity crush du'jour at my house. My son doesn't have a crush yet though.

My celebrity crush was Shaun Cassidy (I promise my daughter's name has NOTHING to do with that, just a coinky-dink) and Andy Gibb.

Maggie said...

I had a mad crush on Joey McIntyre from New Kids on the Block and River Phoenix.

Today I'd have to say I am crushing on Edward Norton and Clive Owen.

Nessa said...

Ashley, my nine year old, is in love with Zac Efron. Her "Troy" doll died and we had a funeral. Girls are so fun!

She also has it bad for "Edward". And Harry Potter.

Love the pillow case btw. I wouldn't mind sleeping on that!

Lynette said...

too cute
we did not have action figure dolls for our crushes
but peter frampton was mine!

sassy stephanie said...

My six year old told me one day that she "loved Troy (Zac Efron)" but not to tell her daddy.

Thank God JT got rid of that blonde fro.

Ashley said...

My first ever celebrity crush: JTT

Jonathan Taylor Thomas

Those blue eyes melted my heart!

Oh to be eight years old again! Haha!

Jill said...

My 4 & 6 year old girls LOVE and WORSHIP Hannah Montana. They get giddy whenever they see anything with Miley Cyrus on it... and honestly, I think it's adorable.

I can't remember any of my former crushes - so I'm living vicariously through my munchkins and seeing the world in a different light. :)

American in Norway said...

I have to admit... I L O V E me a little JT & it makes me feel like a DIRTY OLD WOMAN... Rrrrrrrrrr

Dane really REALLY likes Miley... I promised him if she goes on tour in Europe.. we will go to see her.. Could be a very expensive promise...(but I would like to see the show too...)

Glad to have you back...miss your posts!

Teri said...

I have a celebrity crush on Johnny Depp. But it is not inappropriate at all. Because he is totally into me. You know?

Karen said...

Hehehe ...I thought the same thing about JT and the lip gloss as well. :-)

I have a crush on Johnny Depp. I think Taylor mightbe developing one as well, as when she came over the other day, we both watched all three of the Pirates of the C movies. (It was a lousy day outside.) I also have a bit of a crush on Viggo Mortensen.

When I was growing up, I was seriously crushing on Sean Connery, Cliff Richard and Charlton Heston (especially in El Cid).

Taylor has a crush on all three of the Jonas Brothers and my Sacha (grandaughter) is into the blond guy from High School Musical.

Jennifer P. said...

Oh--so good to be reading you again. I hate how busy my life has become--and it feels wonderful just to laugh :)! I remember panties JT -- hee hee hee!

I can remember being 5 and telling my mom that I was "going to the tennis club to play tennis with Shaun Cassidy and Leif Garrett". And now of course, we're both a little unnaturally obsessed with a certain Mr.Rickman. Mmmmm.... :-X

Michelle said...

Wow, that picture of JT swimming with the underwear, looking like he's trying to grab onto some of it... priceless! And the chapstick? yep. Yep. Yep.

My first crush? I'm ashamed to admit to it, but ummm I sorta had a thing for John Denver. And I'm only 33. Think about how uncool he was when I had a crush on him. Fortunately, I moved from him to Andre Agassi. Slightly better crush.

Lula! said...

Mine is no secret.

I LOVE ME SOME JASON STATHAM. And there is NOTHING inappropriate about that.


p.s. Libbey's boyfriend is Keith Urban, and has been for 4 years. We took her to see him perform live, in Atlanta, in June of '07. It was a GOOD time.

Anonymous said...

Hey Kat, does she know that JT is on Oprah today. You may want to record it for her. (<:
Rhonda P.

Tam said...

First off IS that a Longaberger Basket that he is in. LOVE Longaberger...good home for JT! My boys are still young.

As for ME HMMMM I do not ever remember having a celebrity crush.

I don't really have one now.

Hope all is great!

Mama Dawg said...

Hey! LOML has those same exact blue panties.

Mine has crushes on older (I mean OLDER) celebrities. She takes after her mom that way!

However, she did watch Twilight and now has a crush on Robert Pattinson. I can't seem to break her of it either.

Her main crush is Zac Efron. I can handle that one.

She also LOVES Jason Mraz. THAT one I can get behind! ;)

My inappropriate celebrity crush is Shia LaBouf. For real.

My first crush was Bo Duke. When I got a bit older, it was Fred Savage.

Linda said...

I was just watching JT on Oprah. He had the studious, nerdy look going on. Not too bad.

My first celebrity crush ... holy crap this will date me ... Shaun Cassidy! Does anyone even know who that is anymore? LOL

Lauren Horsley said...

TOO FUNNY! But ya gotta give the girl credit for good taste! That boy is aging well. (And that is not a "kinda fro" - that is some wicked stuff. I can imagine he wants to junk-punch the manager that made him rock that 'do.)

I had it bad for Christian Slater from age 11 on. Kissed my poster of him goodnight every evening. And if there had been a CS doll, he would've resided in the panty drawer, where all important stuff is kept safe from burglars and nosey sisters.

Nissa said...

Melodie loves Barack Obama. Anytime she sees him-on TV, the internet, a newspaper, magazine-she chants "Brock Abahma, Brock Abahma!!"

I think my first crush was Shawn Cassidy from the Hardy Boys. I was only 5, but I had a poster of him on my wall. So I certainly can't judge Madalyn for her JT obsession. I was a New Kids on the Block freak as a teen.

Aubrey said...

*choke*
Wait while I stop coughing! That comment was too funny! Is that lipstick in your pocket....

Ok.
Anywhoo...
Johnny Depp! Oh how I loved him.


My son has Megan Fox plastered on his computer screen and my daughter is like your typical tween (or cougar LOL) and loves the Jonas Bros.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I wanna sleep with JT......

Rachel Ann said...

WOW!! My niece's name is Madalyne...I've never seen anyone spell it even close to her name!! She doesn't use Madalyne very much though...she is a Maddy!
