I watch a lot of reality tv and I think it's all gross and stunts and I love it anyway. But I stumbled on this show the other night and it really spoke to me. Has anyone seen this? It's about babies who convince their parents to let them do pageants. And so these parents, because they only care about their babies happiness, sacrifice everything so that these kids can fulfill their dreams of winning Grand Supreme. And then all these kids do is cry and whine and act like they'd rather be home watching Sprout. So ungrateful! They have no idea how lucky they are and I feel like they could use some straight talk. This is going to seem harsh but they can't be coddled forever.

Sami Jo, I know you are a baby. Yeah, I get it. But seriously what is with the crawling on the floor during Beauty? Why do you want to punish your mother like that? All she does is love you. And by the way, your mom was right. You were "horrible" at Beauty. If that stings, I hope it just motivates you. We all know what you can be if you just apply yourself.

Alexis, I didn't notice until your mom pointed it out but you do have "really small and closed eyes" so suck it up and wear those fake lashes. However, I love that hot dogs are your favorite food. They are mine as well and so you are my Grand Supreme favorite so far!
Ugh. Sami Jo you were such a bitch after Beauty. Can you not go one day without a morning and afternoon nap? Thank God your mom had some "special juice" (Red Bull and whip its) to get you pumped for Fancy Wear. Alas, you didn't do any of your "moves". WTF Sami Jo? You are really going to have to bring it for Talent. (Didn't).
Hmm. Alexis, I don't know about your "Cleo Patrick" portrayal for Fancy Wear. Having your "slabes" carry you out on a daybed made me uncomfortable. That being said, your robot during Talent was legit.
Girls! Yes, this is a tough business. But it's the choice you made. So when you feel like you couldn't possibly take one more sip of Mountain Dew and all you want is your Nuk and blankie, keep in mind my motto: try harder, run faster, be better at everything. Your parents deserve it.
