Once upon a time,
there was a sweet little girl named Erin.
She loves music and loves to watch the Nickelodeon channel.
Her favorite show is "Big Time Rush"
She loves all 4 members of the group,
but her absolute favorite is Kendall Schmidt.
She talks about him all the time,
reads all the magazines and watches the shows
over and over and over again.
She hoped that someday, she would get to meet him.
Through the eyes of my daughter,
I wistfully remembered what it was like
to be a star-struck little girl and to wish
for your dreams to someday come true.
Recently, her older sister Ryan had heard the group
was going to be at our local radio station.
So I called my boss,
who happens to know everyone and has a big heart,
to see if he knew anyone who could help.
And like magic, my boss was able to grant Erin her wish.
So last night, I whisked Erin to the studio,
where not 10 feet away from her the group performed
an intimate 2 song concert.
With only the help of a guitar,
these boys can sing, for sure!
During the songs, Erin kept whispering,
"Do you see him keep looking at me?!"
Afterward, they posed for pics taken by
the professional photog at the studio.
We were told that was it,
they wouldn't be able to pose for personal photos
with all the fans that were there.
But the group was in no big-time-rush to leave (get it?)
so we walked back to where they were standing and
snapped a couple more photos.
Here is Carlos:
Sadly, James was very busy, so Erin approached Kendall.
As she walked up to him, she told him,
"I am your biggest fan!"
And hearing that, Kendall swept her up in his arms
and said, "No, I'm YOUR biggest fan!" :::sigh:::
He then put her down and told her he liked her hat,
she wears them all the time because he wears them.
And then he took the hat off of his own his head
and put it on her:
And with that, he hugged her, told me she was adorable.
I thanked him profusely for making her dreams come true.
These young men were so personable
and made themselves so available for their fans.
It was such a beautiful thing to experience.
As we walked out of the studio,
Erin turned to me and said,
"I feel like I just touched God."
I hope this Valentine's Day will stay with you forever
my sweet angel.
Thank you, Kendall Schmidt.
And thank you, Big Time Rush.
