(Not even) Wordless Wednesday - Don't they grow up too fast already?

Auntie Em recently visited with the girls and gave them little goodie bags of stuff to take home.  One item in the bag was a set of  Disney stick on nails.  They are similar to these.  (My image isn't very clear, so I thought I'd give you a link too.)  While they are probably harmless, I just feel like the kids grow up too fast already.  I don't think they need nails and heels at such a young age.  What is your opinion?

*Note - I don't like nails and heels for the girls, so I don't buy them for them.  However, when others do, I do let them wear them.   I don't want them to seem "forbidden" and therefore more exciting.  I am more of a "everything in moderation" kind of gal.  


  1. I'm like you, more of an "everything in moderation" kind of mama. I have gone through this same thing with my twin girls. We've made it through some tough years, and have come out on the good side because they now appreciate their natural good looks. They are thankful that they don't have to rely on lots of make-up, artificial nails, designer clothes, etc. to be themselves.
    BTW, love your blog....I'm a follower!

  2. I'm so sad to think about my little girl growing up and having to make those decisions!! She is 2.5 and when I went to buy her sandals this summer...MOST of the sandals at TARGET were "heels" whether wedge or otherwise...for a two year old!!

    I'm guessing I'll be somewhere in the middle when the time comes. *geez*

    Happy WW :)
