My daughter is going to be 11 this month. However she both looks and acts 15. I blame much of this on the YouTube videos she is obsessed with. See for yourself at JuicyStar07 . Now these aren’t harmful by any stretch. They just involve make-up and a young fashionista. My daughter is not allowed to wear make-up out in public. It’s just something she is playing with and having fun doing in her spare time. But she spends a tremendous amount of time organizing her lovely new vanity and jewelry box. I will have to take photos of this and add them in later (since I am at work).
She is particulary obsessed with M.A.C. cosmetics. Something she will get to indulge a bit on our trip to NYC for her birthday. It is fun and I can understand the “collecting” aspect of this newfound fascination. And I will admit, I love that she’s so about organizing her room…so thank you to Blair Fowler (Miss JuicyStar07 herself) for that.
But I must admit, it makes me really happy when her friend comes over and they play with their dolls. After all, those American Girl dolls need some love too. And I need to see my baby acting like…well, like a little girl. At least once in awhile.
