  • No pagents here. I have a hard enough time with all the glitz and glamour of dance recitals! I really think we have little girls growing up too fast. JMO

  • My daugher and I were watching that show together. My 9 yo actually used the B word to describe some of the mothers! I couldn't believe it. But she said, MOM the kids are brats and the moms are Bi8ches. I did NOT find that funny, but she was right.

  • I had two daughters and allowed both to enter one for the experience. Neither one wanted to repeat the experience. however, youngest did get 3rd runner up and Miss Congeniality

  • My daughter would not be one of those cute girly girls...lol. She would not even be in the running for Miss Congeniality, and I'm betting she would have undressed herself before she even made it to the stage.

  • I think it's sick, IMHO. Why would you dress your 4 year old up to look like a 30 year old?

  • Their may be like one here in the UK. But i can assure you it gets fuck all recepetion. I think they're sick. They make these little girls look like barbie's even fakers sister. TOO much make-up that no grown woman would wear, spray on tan and vile puffy dresses i wouldn't have a bridemaid wear.

    The one thing i have seen all these girls have in common is that half of them hate it and all of their mothers are very overweight.

  • I think it is a way for parents to live through their children. I would never have my child in a pagent until they are old enough to decide for themselves that it is what they want.
