Tomorrow (Friday) we are venturing out to Six Flags Over Texas! The kids have been bugging us and waiting to go, so tomorrow is finally it (we can't find anymore excuses NOT to go!).
So tonight we ran over to the "Stuff-Mart" to find bathing suits...
Can I just say that the people who make these things must think that ALL young girls/ladies are whores or strippers! I could not find one decent "one piece" bathing suit for my daughter. That's right you heard me a ONE PIECE!! Yes my youngest is 14, and yes she is a young lady, and YES she still needs to wear a ONE PIECE!! See, you must understand my 14 year old is well endowed (it runs in the family...gee, thanks MOM!!) and the 2 piece bikinis do not cover nearly enough for me to be putting my baby, sorry she's not a baby! My Chica in!! So until I say other wise she is in a one piece!
Anyway, back to my rant about the "Stuff-Mart"...
So after an hour of going through racks of 2 piece string and gauze sets (which are priced SEPARATELY...WTH!!!) We finally find some one piece bathing suits. Do you want to see the garbage that we found? Of course you do....
I'm sorry, maybe it's just me but "THIS IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE BATHING SUIT FOR A 14 YEAR OLD!!!!!" No, she did not pick that up, and surely did not want to be photographed holding it but I had to get a picture of what was available at the "Stuff-Mart". So Chica bought a pair of shorts to wear over a body suit (with a cover up on top), I'll try to post a picture later!
So for all you parents out there, and you concerned adults I have a few questions for you...
When did it become OK for the world to treat our children like they are adults??
When did it become OK for the world to tell our children that less is more??
When did it become OK for society to try and make our "CHILDREN" look, and act like adults??
As a parent,
I declare that my CHILD will stay a child until she is of legal age!
I declare that society WILL NOT determine her worth!
I declare that a child WILL stay in a child's place in my home!
I declare that she will enjoy her childhood!
I declare that she will not be forced, coerced, or tricked into being grown before her time!
I declare that she WILL have all the tools, instruction & knowledge that she needs to grow into the mighty woman of God that she is destined to be!
I declare that I will do everything in my power (with the grace of GOD) to ensure these declarations!
As a parent if I don't do my job then who will?
Peace, Love & Blessings
