I picked this up the other day at Borders and I literally read it in under two hours. I was laying on the couch reading and M.D. was sucked into his little playstation world ( I so do not get it but that is a rant for another time). I was laughing so hard he kept looking back at me like I was crazy. I really picked it up because it looked funny and I have this kick that I am on right now that she also addresses.
I can not understand first off why any parent thinks it is okay to buy your 10 year old pants that say "HOTTIE" or "JUICY" on the ass but then for the parent to also wander into the juniors section and buy the matching pants. WHO DOES THIS??? As a parent you have to wonder what kind of attention you are looking to attract with these pants and outfits. 10 or 12 year old boys? It is wonderful if you can fit into a size 2 again after children. Yes we are all jeleous but please do it with respect. I can speak for myself and say I can never once remember thinking I hope my child wants to wear skanky clothes because I will encourage it and match it. Clothes like this lead to rumors and rumors lead to actions. I can promise that I will do everything in my power to keep that child from sex and drugs and all those wonderful things. Can I totally prevent it? No, but I will go to sleep everynight knowing that I did all I could do. Top of my list will be to beging practicing the words HELL NO for when she asks for some hottie pants. "Sorry baby mommy can't fit into those too so we will need to look for another option."
