Yesterday, coming out of the pediatrician’s office I saw a bumper sticker on a van not unlike the kid mobile we drive around in that said “Twilight Mom.” With a certain degree of futility, I thought to myself, “I hope we never have a bumper sticker like that.” Who knows what will be all the rage in 8 years (5? 10?), presumably not vampires but they do have a certain cyclical staying power. I guess it could be worse : See, for instance, Disney princesses and fairies.
Perhaps if we get to the kids early enough we can get some LotR fascination going. It would have to be the books and not the movies, of course, cause I don’t want my car plastered with pictures of Orlando Bloom if I can help it.
