More about Walmart and Make-Up for Little Girls

Remember about a week ago, Kate and I went on TV and they asked us to talk about how Walmart is launching a line of make-up for little girls ages 8-12? And we were like "OH NO THEY DIDN'T". Well, the other times we'd been on TV, we had a chance to prepare and think about what we were going to say ahead of time.  Not you could tell. But this last time, we spoke completely off the cuff. 

We talked about it a lot afterwards and while we regret nothing, I decided I had more to say. 
If you'd like to read it, it's right here in our column Maternal Ammunition in the Washington Times Communities.

Special thanks to the hilarious and supremely talented Mommy Shorts for sharing her mad graphics skillz with us once again.

  1. Excellent points ladies! I was just thinking the other day how I may have been a hottie back in the day, but I was so self conscious I had no clue. Now I get it. And it's so much more, like you said, of being happy with who you are. You guys say it so well, thank you!

  2. Really REALLY great post. Well stated, and with some definite Mommyland Flair. Thanks for encouraging healthy childhoods, and reminding me to appreciate myself too :)

  3. If I've said it once, I've said it a bajillion times. I effing LOVE you ladies.

    Carry on.
