New Duet for Miley and Nick – Are They Back Together?

Miley and Nick

A few days ago, I caught an interesting tweet from Miley Cyrus and retweeted it here; Miley said she and Nick J. were “in a dark theater ‘writing’ a song together”.

Yesterday, pictures of Miley and Nick Jonas from a video shoot, and a new duet by the former couple that’s been leaked on YouTube, make it look as though they are back together! Is it all publicity or is it real? (They are an adorable couple, and if you listened to Miley’s last album, you know she wasn’t over him!)

The YouTube vid (it’s actually just audio) link is below.  Listen to it then post your thoughts in the comments.  Back together or just publicity, what do you think?  Do you even care?  Here’s what we think:

Mom:  I hope it’s real (but I’m a romantic!).  I think you’ve been able to hear their pain in their songs, and maybe these two cuties belong together!  As for the song, I’m not crazy about it.  It’s OK.  I’m more “interested” in what it says and what it means than “into” the song itself.

Sillycooper:

I personally don’t care for these two. I really don’t watch disney so I don’t know much about them.

PopStarPeaches:

I dunno.  Maybe they are.  I like the song, but I don’t know.  I really like Miley, and the Jonas Brothers– we saw them in concert, and they were all awesome!

Mom:

Will you buy the song when it comes out?

Peach:

Yeah, I would.  Whose CD would it be on?

We’ll have to wait and see.  Both for the CD, and about Miley and Nick!  Fingers crossed!

Update: Miley and Nick’s duet is featured on the Jonas Brothers’ new CD, Lines, Vines and Trying Times, to be released next week. Pre-order here: Lines, Vines and Trying Times

Fred: Funny, or not so much? That depends.

Fred-freaks-out Fred Figglehorn. Know who he is?  If you’re 12, you do.  If you’re 10, you do.  If you watch iCarly, you do.  But especially if you spend any time at all on YouTube, you do!

Fred is a freaked-out 6-year-old, who’s always… freaking out… about everything.  Like  cabbages.  He protects the neighborhood squirrels, and he hates Kevin, a kid that goes to his school….  Fred is also a character created and portrayed by 15-year-old Lucas Cruikshank in a homemade YouTube video, that’s turned into hundreds of YouTube videos… and made this kid a celebrity.  He does TV now, makes public appearances, and has an agent!

Sillycooper’s edit: I think Fred is one of the best comedians on YouTube. He is the number one most subscribed YouTube channel of all time, and has several other honors. All of his videos on YouTube have millions of views, and he also gets about 300,000 comments a DAY. He also will comment your channel if you are lucky. I hope he comments on my channel someday. He also accepts any friend invites that he gets, so invite him! You can watch his videos at http://www.youtube.com/fred.

Mom:  Silly got a Fred shirt from Fred’s website.  He doesn’t like to wear it to school, though.  Apparently Fred’s sort of a controversial comedian among middle schoolers.

Silly:  I think the shirt’s pretty cool.  And it’s comfortable too.

Mom:  So why don’t you want to wear it to school?

Silly:  Some people at school don’t think Fred is funny.  They think he’s dumb.  A few people liked it when I wore it to school.  They said, “Luck-y!”  But some people say it’s dumb.  So I’ll just wear it at home.

Personally, I think S.Coop should be able to be comfortable enough with himself to wear whatever he likes, but then again I know how middle school kids can be….

Fred's not all that funnyAnyway,  I sat with Silly and watched some of Fred’s vids today, and… I was laughing!  (OK, I was LOL-ing).  Until today, I had only watched a few seconds’ worth here and there, and the iCarly episode where Fred (Lucas) guest-starred.  Like iCarly’s Freddie, I had never seen what was so funny about Fred either.  In fact, I have this piece of flair on my corkboard on Facebook (right):

Also, a small percentage of what Fred does is not entirely appropriate, but unless you have a tweener who is extremely sheltered, or on the young side emotionally, there’s nothing there that should make you stop your kids from watching.  In fact, here, for your enjoyment, is the episode where Fred rescues the neighborhood squirrels.  Just so you understand the enormity of this kid, this video has over 6,700,000 views (yes that’s 6 MILLION), and over 62,000 comments.  What do you think?  What do your kids think?  Funny, or not so much?  Leave your comments below!

Sillycooper and PopStarPeaches get new beds!

img_4609Hi everybody. I’m Sillycooper and I wanted to say that I got a new bed! I had out-grown my twin size bed and I got a full now. I got the high box spring so it’s really high up! It’s really comfortable, too. I wanted to get a queen but I was convinced to get a full, and I’m happy with it. It’s about 11:20 at night and I can’t wait until I want to go to sleep so I can try it out!

Mom says: Both my kidlets are very tall for their ages, and it was time for full-sized beds.  We did manage to talk them out of queen-sized– thank goodness!  Queen sized would’ve totally overwhelmed their rooms.  We got them the Sealy PosturePedic Reserve Ultra Plush, and they are SO comfortable!  My husband was wondering how it happens that the kids now have nicer beds than we do!  Anyway, big hit with the kids– they are feeling very grown up!

We’re serving up… how about two scoops?

two-scoops-square-logoWelcome to our brand new blog, Two Scoops, where you will get the scoop on all things tweener – from two perspectives: a mom and her kids!  Tweeners are kids at that “in between” age – I put it from about 7 to 12.  They’re not little kids anymore, but they’re not teenagers either.  They’ve got their own issues and their own ideas – and their own opinions on everything!

You’ve probably seen a review of a kids’ book or movie by an adult, and wondered, “But what do kids really think of it?”  Or you might hear from one of your kids’ friends how great something is, and you wish you could hear about it from the kid’s parent to get an adult perspective.  Here, we’ll give you both.  We’re going to make an effort to “review all we do,” and that means everything from the latest Harry Potter movie, to a new pair of Converse shoes, to our first foray into Abercrombie (let’s just say, we sashayed right back out again)!

We’re going to offer many of the things we’re reviewing for sale through an Amazon affiliate link– but we’ll be entirely honest in our reviews, and you can judge for yourself on whether or not to purchase.  Any money earned on this blog – as with any money we earn anywhere online – goes toward our family’s next vacation!  (We don’t get out very often, so thanks in advance for anything you do purchase through Two Scoops!)

We look forward to your comments, and hope you will enjoy Two Scoops!
