Pre-Teen Mean

Like that song from "Into the Woods" says, "careful the things you say, children will listen." Guess it was true. It looks like a world full of precocious piranha fish are now listening to their bitchy older sisters for cues on how to interact with their peers. Boys do the same thing, but they just flat out beat each other up. I think I preferred that.

And, really, is there anything more attractive than sarcasm and snark in the extremely precocious? Why, it's almost as quasi-charming as seeing them stumble around in their mother's high heels, dressed in her over-large silk blouse, with her pearl necklace pooling around their heels (not for the last time).

'Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon, who has her own stylist...' WTF? That woman's yearly income could support an African nation and she finances a stylist for her kid. Oy gevalt!

Her OWN stylist should be horsewhipped for that bad Farrah Fawcett 'do that's dyed the color of macaroni and cheese...

Some retro just ain't charming.

If Lourdes gets laughed at by other kids for what she's wearing, will the stylist be fired? Imagine if your job security was based on the whims of twelve year old girls.

I remember going through that phase. Wearing my Mother's heels and dress and scarves and a kick ass hat with matching clutch purse. Oh, how I got whipped but I enjoyed being a gurl.
