what we're doing for our kids

***Update: This is an April Fool's Joke :)

Many of you know that I am obsessed with the show, "Toddlers and Tiaras." 

If you're not familiar with the show, watch this inspiring short video clip.

I've been thinking a lot lately about getting my little girls into beauty pageants like this. (They are 6 and 4, and I don't want them to get any older before they've won their first pageant)!!!

A little secret- I've already ordered them each a flipper (the mouthpiece they wear to really make their smile sparkle) and a wig (my oldest had her hair chopped about 2 years ago, and we used that hair to make a custom wig for her so that her hair will match perfectly).

I just figure that since I'm soooo into sewing, I know I can make all their costumes and dresses.
(And they will be way cuter than what any other contestants are wearing). Heck, it would give me sooo much to blog about! I might even make a few to sell in my Etsy shop.

I.am.so.excited.
{squeal!!!!!!!!}

And I hope, I really really hope....

APRIL FOOLS!!!

For the record, I saw about 5 minutes of that show one night. I just about died. There is NO WAY I would ever subject my children to something so sad, indulgent, and... creepy. I apologize if your views are different than mine, but hey, that's my opinion!

And I'm soooo glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!! Check out what Tom Hanks and Jimmy Kimmel did...


So did I fool you, for even a second?

  2. You had me wondering about your judgement...but this is also the first time I've been to your blog.

    Would never have done that to my daughter, but wouldn't sewing the dresses be fun?

  11. Yep, I bought it. I kept thinking about how you just really never know people as well as you think you do, and... well, your girls are super cute, but WOW.
    I had seen the Tom Hanks thing a long time ago, but had forgotten. Thanks for the reminder!

  13. Oh my, I was reading that thinking, "I have to stop following this blog, otherwise I'm going to say something I will regret" and then you delivered the punchline and I was so relieved that my judgement wasn't wrong and you are an awesome person. Great April Fool's Day joke--totally had me for about 40 seconds :)

  19. Have to admit that I was creeping out as soon as I saw the little snippet on Facebook. I think these pageants are right up there with cruelty to animals, child abuse, and knocking old people off the sidewalk into the street when buses are passing.

I was about to die! :) (That mom on the first video... wow... I couldn't bear the part when the little girl was crying, and her idiot mom just kept sprayin her... :( )
