Little Monster

So some of you have wanted to know why I call my daughter Little Monster. 

Is it because she is, in fact, an actual little monster that clawed her way out of my womb much like the demon baby in Breaking Dawn?  No, of course not (sometimes).

She is known as Little Monster because she is Lady Gaga's biggest fan (okay, let's be honest here...I'm a huge fan, and it might have kinda sorta rubbed off on Little Monster).  And we all know Gaga calls her fans Little Monsters.

And I'm proud of that.  It's fun to talk to Little Monster about Gaga, and how she likes to pretend but it's always to make a statement, and make people think about issues and feel good about themselves.  Little Monster loves looking at Gaga's costumes and performances and thinks she is just beautiful.  And she is, inside and out.

Her new song Born This Way is so emotional because it inspires me to talk to my daughter about loving herself and respecting everyone, no matter who they are.  And I think Gaga is a perfect example of that.

So Gaga fans, young and old, put your paws up and love yourselves, love your neighbor and always know: you are special and were born this way.

I love her too. I think it's really neat the your little lady loves her so much! She's a pretty cool chick with some good messages. Awesome stuff!

I'm just jumping in to say that I have no idea if that's the Breaking Dawn poster.

I found the original link and am going to post it- it's a fanart manipulated image.

Ooh that breaking dawn poster is kinda creepy. But Gaga rocks. I love how she doesn't care what people think of her. :)

Definitely a good reason to call her Little Monster!

Gaga sings Born This Way? It's been stuck in my head. I don't really listen to mainstream radio music. Or the radio in general. Although, I was in the car yesterday with my friends, and the announcer said "Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner!" Of course he said winner in an extremely ridiculous way, and I spit my gum out. ;D But I do love Gaga, too. Good for the little monster!

I'm always a little creeped out when my preschoolers tell me how much they love Lady Gaga. But I'll withhold judgment on you and LM because I already think you're awesome. :)

I love the GaGa. So I guess I'm a little monster too!

Talli Roland said...

I don't know much about Lady Gaga, to be honest! Maybe I should find out more!

Hope you have a great weekend.

It's so awesome that lady gaga opens up conversation between you and your daughter. I mean, so many times parents forget to just TALK to their kids and the fact that Lady Gaga actually encourages you to talk to Little Monster is a great thing.

Oh LORD! That picture of Bella with the hands in her stomach is creepy....

Jennie Bailey said...

How long before you're taking Little Monster to her first Gaga concert? The two of you dressed up together - I can't wait for those pictures!! At least she's not begging you to take her to Hannah Montana or the Jonas Brothers. Not that there's anything wrong with...just that she's already showing great taste in music.

Christina Lee said...

AWWW Sweet! And I haven't seen that Twi poster--I'm scared ;-)

Creepy picture of pregnant Bella. Hopefully little monster out grows her name. We called my one son, Nuke, when he was little because to the destruction he caused in any room he entered.

Lovely post - I love the nickname "little monster" but I never would have guessed its origins LOL! New follower:)

Regina said...

Gaga is such an original. I love her and everything about her. What a great talk you had with your little monster. I think it is great.

I often wonder where parents are in the YA books I read, of course it’s worse when I read books for toddlers like Max and Ruby where the parents leave the only-slightly-older sibling in charge of a three-year-old. Hmm…
