    An 11 Year Old That Acts Like An 11 Year Old

    I took my baby to the children's museum tonight. When we got there, I was a little worried because there seemed to be a lot of small children there. Was this a big oops? My baby had a ball!!!! She played like she was still an 11 year old. It saddens me to see little girls trying...

    Make Up

    Actually I guess it is not really a little thing self esteem is really pretty huge...and I am thankful that my daughter has enough self esteem not to wear 10lbs of make up. She is rocking the natural look with class instead of looking like an indian preparing for war
