So – what do you say my fellow mom’s (and dad’s)? How on Earth is it acceptable to wax a 3 year old child’s eyebrows? unibrow or not – just how is it acceptable? Why hasn’t the government or Child Protection Services or anyone with more then a milligram of brain intervened and done something? Maybe they have or maybe they haven’t…but one thing is for sure – you know what path that child’s life will take if she stays with her mom!
Honestly I think I gave birth to the most beautiful baby on this planet and know all my mom friends think alike. How can one mom then decide to wax her child’s eyebrows because she thought they looked unseemly – what next put her on a diet and treadmill because she has chubby thighs? or sent her to a fat camp to get rid of that (adorable for me) baby fat? What’s next? Our society needs to do something to stop this obsession with looks! Reality TV glamorizes little toddlers getting spray tans and curling their hair and people enjoy that crap. I mean really – is this what our western civilization has come to?
A few weeks ago I saw Leia stand in front of the mirror and suck her stomach in! I ran to her(aghast) and asked her why she was doing that – and she just said her babysitter’s name. Her babysitter is getting married in a few months and was on a diet to loose weight and maybe Leia saw her look at herself and started copying. At 2 she started imitating that, she wants to put on Chappix (chapstick) because mama does so, she wants to comb her hair (sometimes with a toothbrush – its a brush right) because mama says good girls don’t go out with messy hair (well when you have to bundle up your child and head out in the morning you end up saying things like that) but seriously we need to understand the implications of such things – our kids listen and react – and we have to be responsible here. Imagine what that 3 year old must be thinking – mama thinks I don’t look good (unibrow shunibrow what does a 3 year old know) so she hurt me (come on – waxing is painful)! I know its easy to judge others and being a mom I try to give others the benefit of the doubt – but not in this case. What do you think?
