the difference between parents and non-parents

It never occurred to me that Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime performance was anything other than pure entertainment . . .

Until some of my friends, who are are also parents, pointed out awkward it was watching Sunday's halftime show with their kids.


Mesmerizing, yes. Gorgeous, definitely.  But awkward nonetheless.

Check out this photo of my favorite California kiddos:

It completely slays me.

I suspect this sums up how a lot of people felt about Beyonce. 

I thought a beautiful woman writhing around in a leather leotard just made for great halftime but I guess for some parents, it also could make for awkward moments and uncomfortable conversations.

Not necessarily for Kelly - her boys loved the performance and didn't ask any questions.  She said they were more interested in Beyonce than they were in the game.  I guess they know a good thing when they see it. 

Good luck in the future, though, Kel, I'm sure the "talks" are coming.
