Some mothers

Randy and I went to help out a friend yesterday. He was learning to use a new computer software for photography that we've had for a while. He had a contract to do the photos for a cheerleading squad and wanted to make sure he had help, if things didn't go right.

After spending three hours with a room of cheerleaders (ages 10-12) and their MOTHERS, I was ready to scream. Can anyone explain why a 10-year old needs to wear more make up than a supermodel? One of the mothers was totally overboard. Her daughter had on so much eye make up you couldn't see her eyes. Then the hair and nails..... The mother was demanding and expected everyone else would just wait until she had her two daughters' photos all taken single and together. The girls didn't want to be in the same room as each other, let alone the same photo. The contract was for one single and a team photo. Did this woman care? NOPE!!!

What is wrong with a little girl looking like a little girl in photos? They're little cheerleaders, not porn stars after all.

I guess I just have a different idea of what is truly important in life. The "perfect" hair, make up, clothes or nails mean absolutely NOTHING in the long run. Who really cares? Of course, I may just be the freak.
