Don't Worry, She Won't Be An Anorexic Waif
So apparently my daughter talked to The Bulletin for their weekly Kids In The Hall, where they ask school kids a question. This week, they were apparently at my daughter's school, and asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween. Her answer? "I'm going to be a model, because my cousin and I decided to both be models." (link behind The Bulletin paywall). She says "model" but it's more like "Glamour Girl" (at least that's what we discussed before), as while my daughter is built like a model (tall and skinny, despite eating like a horse), encouraging her to be a model is something we're just not going to do. She's eight-years-old, for cripes sakes -- thankfully she doesn't know the difference (and is smart enough to realize the problem if she did). Same thing with her cousin. They're both smart, bright, kids who eat plenty and will both do something great with their lives, thankyouverymuch.
But thanks for the concerns sent my way today. Now can you get on with your life and quit being so concerned about my parenting skills? Get a hobby, folks. Thanks.
