Some People...


I saw an 11 year old girl wearing this costume at the elementary school fall festival last week.


That’s some fine parenting, wouldn’t you say?!


I hope you will come back on Friday as Firehubby, myself and our kiddos are having a Halloween blogfest. Yes, the kids have blogs too :)

Now way! Yikes. Crazy parents. I will be back.

Valerie said...

That is just wrong on so many levels...poor Dorothy AKA Judy Garland...she must be rolling over in her grave! LOL

Mighty M said...

That is crazy wrong!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Oh my! Just think about how she will dress when she's older.

Brandi said...

I saw all kinds of disturbing costumes when I took my boys to Party City. I was shocked by the costumes for little girls!

Foursons said...

Yes, that is appalling. The people making those costumes AND the moms buying them are both at fault.

renee said...

i can't tell you how many kinds of wrong that is. ugh.

Just Breathe said...

Don't you just want to slap them. How could a parent buy that for an 11 year old! I want to say what Dr. Phil would say "What were you thinking?"

Ouch. 1. No mirror? and 2. No parents? Very sad. What ever happened to fairy princesses?

Jen said...

seriously!? She can't even fill it out. Well, I hope she can't fill it out. ;)

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Just wrong

Helene said...

An 11-yr old? Seriously? Wow! I'm speechless.

Well, in the fine words of Ellen Degeneres, Halloween seems to just simply be costumes for sleezeballs....Sleezy nurse, Sleezy milk maid, Sleezy maid, SLEEZE SLEEZE SLEEZE!!!

I will be back too!!! ;)

April said...

What??? You've got to be kidding, Julie! What in the world are some parents thinking these days? You know that I will be back! :)

I agree with all the others. Way totally wrong that your children have blogs. What the hell were you thinking???

I work in a high school health room - nothing surprises me anymore - but it's also very sad. I have been trying to promote self-esteem classes in my school for years because there is such a void in how the girls see themselves and what their needs are. Moms,aunts, teachers, sisters, friends - let the girls in your lives know they have value as individuals - that they are special - just as they are - be a kind voice. You might be the only one that day, that moment.

Did the costume look as risque' on the kid as it does on the lady in the pic?

How terrible. Why do adults even want to look like this in public? What a world.

I went to our daughter's Harvest festival and there were some questionable costumes there as well. Makes you wonder if the parents are aware of this or do these kids dress up in the bathrooms at school?

Wow, parenting fail! Maybe I was raised a little different, but I would've been slapped just for thinking about a costume like that at 11 yrs old! Of course...the parent's were dressed as the Scarecrow, right?

~*Michelle*~ said...

reminds me of those prostitots. (is that what people call them? LOL...I am so out of date lately)

Yeah,...that is a total drag on an 11 year old...


see you tomorrow!

Cheesemakin' Mamma said...

That is insane! Then people wonder why there is so much sexual abuse with children going on. Makes me glad I homeschool.

Brandi said...

Hey, Julie... award for you on my blog. Brian as well (hmmm, possibly his first mommy-blogging award?) J/K ~ I chose to pass along a "writing" award. Participation optional.

blueviolet said...

I seriously can't even believe it. I don't think it's appropriate for any age quite frankly.

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

What the heck is wrong with people!

Orah said...

Holy ill parenting... I don't even understand how all the costumes became so slutty and are outright marketed to young kids, but the parents that let their kids wear it - ugh.

Are you kidding!???
