Mom-Crushing

I have Mom-crushes. Some people define a Mom-crush as being a middle-aged woman sexually fantasizing about young men in their 20's. That's not a Mom-crush, that's being a Cougar.

My idea of a Mom-crush is having a fantasy about being a Mom to celebrities in their 20's. These fantasies include having them come for a weekend sleepover, cooking their favorite dinner, watching their favorite movie, pulling out the waffle iron to make them breakfast and then a trip to DisneyWorld.

The following young actors and actresses are my current Mom-crushes.

He's Chris Colfer and plays Kurt on Glee and he's 21. The first season on Glee I kept getting teary about this young kid coming to terms with being gay. Every time someone hurt him I wanted to reach into the TV and give him a hug. When he came out to his Dad I was beyond teary, right into weepy. I wish nothing but continued success to Chris.



This is Damian McGinty. He's 19 and a sweet Irish lad. I first saw him sing with Celtic Thunder at age 14. This past summer he was a co-winner of a reality show called The Glee Project. Starting Nov 1st he'll be in a 7 episode arc of Glee. When Damian comes to my house, before I make him sing for me I'm just going to sit and listen to him chat in his Derry accent. 
 My newest Mom-crush is on Zooey Deschanel. She's 31 and yes, I'm old enough to be her mother. She is funny/quirky, she sings with She&Him, she's pretty and I love the way she dresses. We watch her play Jess on The New Girl and we laugh out loud.  If you need a bigger dose of Zooey, she is one of the co-founders of http://hellogiggles.com/category/special/authors

Do you recognize this pretty girl? Maybe if I show you a more famous shot of her...

It's Abigail Breslin when I first fell in love with her. She's 15 now and growing into a beautiful girl. She'll be seen again in the movie New Year's Eve where she'll play Sarah Jessica Parker's daughter.

If I'm having all of my Mom-crushes over for dinner and sleepovers I need to work on getting a bigger apartment.

Your fantasy kids are a great crew! I'd take home the kids from Modern Family in a second.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this idea! I am totally stealing it for my blog. I will give you props. Now I just have to come up with my list.

I love that fantasy. It's way better than the cougar one, which I must say always grossed me out.

I love all your choices too! A mom-crush feels so much more appropriate than the alternative.

Love them all! Such great pics. I feel a question coming on, "If you could have any celebrity slumber party..." ;)

I meant picks, like celebrity picks - not pictures.

I need a nap. ;)

I have a mom crush on Lilly, the little girl in Modern Family.

I'm so outta the loop. The only one I recognized was Abigail Breslin. Maybe cause I never watch GLEE?!

What a fun idea!

I like your list. Joseph Gordon-Leavitt is on mine.
