Toddler & Tiara mother may lose custody of daughter over pageant clothes
Before seeing this show for the first time, a child beauty pageant (to me) consisted of a 'spur-of-the-moment-stand-in-line' event at the mall to have a photo of your baby taken against a faux backdrop.

After paying the $5 sitting fee, you received an uncentered polaroid picture to take home as a souvenir. Usually in a cardboard frame which identified any picture inserted as being the 'world's most beautiful baby'

These pictures then became a semi-permanent addition to your refrigerator hall-of-fame photo gallery...usually held in place by a very ugly butterfly magnet.

Boy, how times have changed!

I've only seen a few episodes of the 'Toddler & Tiaras' reality show, and quite frankly, I was shocked by what I saw.

Young children being spray-tanned. Adorned with feathered hair extentions, flipper mouth pieces. Fancy little cocktail dresses with so many sequins & bling...Liberace would be envious. Spending more time in hair and make-up then I did on my wedding day. Deprived of their naps. Fed huge amounts of pixie-sticks & energy drinks to keep them 'active'. Bribed with candy, kittens, money, fame & fortune to perform on stage for 2 minutes. To talk this way, to walk this way, dance this way, twirl this way, smile this way.

And if all that wasn't bad enough, I had the priviledge of watching the moms (and sometimes a high-paid pageant coach) pantomime the routine in the audience, helping the child complete the well-rehearsed & choreographed dance number. While simultaneously making a complete fool of themselves lip-syncing an old Shirley Temple song while dressed in gray sweat pants and a tshirt that's 5 sizes too big.

Most of these kids are total brats....most of these moms are repulsive....and the entire notion that any of this is healthy or positive for their long-term emotional stability is laughable.

For these reasons, I'm sharing this news article I found today.

The now 6-year-old's mother dressed her as Dolly Parton, complete with figure-enhancing padded bra and sculpting underwear, on a now-infamous episode of the show. If that sounds outrageous to you, you're not alone -- the stunt sparked plenty of controversy back in September of last year. And now it looks like it could cause Maddy's mother Lindsay Jackson to lose custody.

One more comment please:

I didn't mean to infer that sweat pants & tshirts are bad. Quite the contrary. I love staying in lounging clothes like that, especially on the weekends.

It just wouldn't be my first choice of clothing if I knew that I was being filmed for a television reality show that may/may not be seen by a nationwide audience.

Just wanted to clarify that! thumbs
