I seem to be having some new obsessions lately and this one is pretty fun.
On TLC there is a new show called Toddlers and Tiaras about children's beauty pageants. Its weird and funny and I can't seem to pull myself away. What I find interesting about it is that most of the parents insist that it is the kid who wants to participate but I think it always starts with the parents who want the kids to do it.
These pageants are insanely expensive not including the dresses, fake teeth, make up, coaches etc. etc. Sometimes, if they win certain things, they win the entrance fee back but more often than not they are more in the hole than before they started.
I'm not going to pass judgement on these parents because I'm not in their shoes. I just think it is fascinating to watch something that I am not really familiar with.
Edit: Would you let your child, girl or boy, enter these pagents? Would you want them to do glam, meaning all the fake everything or natural with no fake anything? Just leave a comment.
