Vain or Not


Little Lea came home over the weekend telling me that her friend Juventis (if that is how it's spelled) had nail polish on her nails and it was so pretty. Normally I let my girls do their nails during the school holidays but not on a school term. I wasn't sure if the teachers in her Kindy would approve of it. Even they are not allowed to have coloured hair bands, clips and hair ties except for blue, black and brown. And I'm talking about Nursery and Kindy, not Primary School.

But Lea was adamant in wanting to be a Princess nowadays. She had become very girly girly lately, perhaps following her sis' footsteps. She is learning to like Pink stuff, Princess stuff and all that girly things Rae has always liked.

On Sunday morning, I came down and saw Lea on the floor, wearing a crown and painting her nails! Gosh my 4 year old is getting quite vain, eh? Rae wasn't even aware of things like these till she was about 5 or 6.. I cleaned out the nail polish on Sunday evening and she threw into a tantrum...

All little girls go through that stage. Aurora grew out of it when she was about 9 or 10.

Sorry to be so honest but I hate the sight of tiny little girls using nail-polish and lipstick! I mean, can you imagine what they will be whipping up when they are in their teens??? And they dont even know how to earn their own money yet, let alone spending them on beauty products! I apologise again if I offended you, but I think for girls, yes, they love looking beautiful, but there is a certain age to do certain things. I have an aunt who loves to dress up her daughters, and I dont see a good future for her daughter cos she now only loves to dress up and go out and dont bother about school. Choice of friends makes a difference as well. So as long as you are there to guide her, hope all will be well. Please dont be mad at me yeah?
