Quoting she nan igans:" To be a basketcase bride, sure. But not a bride in and of itself. To be a bride you just need to get ... [snip!] ... to get married, lol. ALl you really need is another person and someone to do it. Las Vegas can manage that pretty fast, lol."
hey now I was married in Vegas LOL..I have only seen one episode of bridezilla. I would kick my kids ass if she acted like any of them. I am one of the few women who hates weddings anyways. I would rather spend my money on other things/

I'm allowed to make that joke because I got married in Las Vegas too, hahah. I'm so anti-bridzilla that I did that so I didn't have to make any plans or arrangements. lol
I know a few crazy bridezilla women and I'm always just, so confused. I guess I don't get the "I'm so wonderful, I'm a BRIDE" thing. It's like, you didn't really DO anything. . . Whats with the huge celebration of you? lol
personally think that babies in bikinis are adorable. especially when they're chunky :lol:
As for the string bikini - that's a bit much. I'm not a huge fan of zebra print anyway.
The thong I def wouldn't buy for my daughter. Even when I was a teen I never asked my mom for a thong. I was much too embarrassed & the thongs I did eventually buy were with my own money. After buying them I realized how uncomfortable they are & never wore them anyway.
The onesie I wouldn't buy - It's just not my taste, not that I have a problem with it. If she were participating in a wedding I'd let her wear it if the bride asked.
Quoting A❤T=P&W:" You might not view them as sexy, but bikinis came out to showcase and sexualize a woman's body."
Yes, sexualize a woman.
I don't sexualize children so I see nothing wrong with bikinis.

<blockquote><b>Quoting A❤T=P&W:</b>" I also take issue with pants with words across the butt, lol"</blockquote>
I love them, lol.
And i especially love ones with animals on the butt.
Quoting A❤T=P&W:" you don't, but others do. "
And what others think doesn't stop me from doing what I don't find problematic.
If some of you care, that's your thing, I guess. I, for one, think that if someone is going to view my daughters in a sexual manner, they'll do it regardless of the type of swimsuit they're wearing.
Quoting she nan igans:" And I agree, which is why I try hard not to force any of that on my kids. Does it happen? Sure! But ... [snip!] ... it hurt my daughter? Of course not, but it still is part of a system I don't like, which means I don't care for the shirt."
Like I said.
You have a boy, who likes baking - do we see button down shirts with cakes, cupcakes, rolling pins on 'em? Not really. I'm sure I could find someone to make it, or search endlessly online but it's not your standard stock in shops. A shirt with a sports ball on it - like hay in a haystack.
None of the children's clothes have real variety. Just because stuff doesn't have words printed on it, doesn't mean it's not falling within a stereotype
My child will be smart, successful and accomplished regardless of what she wears. Why? Because she's already talented, speaks 2 languages and is learning a third, and I have no doubt, will continue displaying ambition in being successful. She is really interested in travel, and asks me about the places I've been to all the time. The other day told me she was disappointed in me that I didn't see the Taj Mahal when I was in India. Even if she's got a shirt that she picked out, which says 'Daddy's Little Princess'.
The clothes a child wears, or for that matter, doesn't wear should NOT define their personality or future, and they shouldn't believe that they do.
Back to the aforementioned boy - should he give up his dream of being a baker if he cannot find the cupcake shirt of his? Should I buy him a 'future baker shirt', just so he'd believe he'll really become one if he wears it? Nah. I'll get the kid some cooking classes and he can wear a baseball shirt to them, work hard, study hard, and make his dreams come true.

Quoting she nan igans:" I don't view children as sexual either. However, that doesn't change that something is intended to be ... [snip!] ... of a reason for it on a child other then the fact that adult women wear them, and adult women wear them to be sexualized. "
Adult women wear them because they're easier to take off wet than a one piece. :lol:
I don't find them sexual in the least.
Quoting Tasha & Nika:" Like I said. You have a boy, who likes baking - do we see button down shirts with cakes, cupcakes, ... [snip!] ... the kid some cooking classes and he can wear a baseball shirt to them, work hard, study hard, and make his dreams come true."
You seem to be taking the statement to mean that a child in that will not succeed. I never said that. I said that the mindsets that lead to that are ones I dislike, so I dislike the items they create. That's it.
Quoting Tasha & Nika:" Speaking of practicality though, now that you mention it - we were at the pool last summer, Nika kept ... [snip!] ... getting frustrated with her one piece from Gap, because it was wet and hard to peel off when she wanted to use the bathroom."
I hate one pieces for the same reason. I also hate how they feel when they're wet and I'm not in a pool. :evil:
I really don't wear anything that doesn't please me first. One pieces, especially wet ones, do not please me.
