My eldest daughter Nataleigh surprised me today. We were at a thrift store to buy the kiddos new shoes when Nattie says
"Mom, I want this."
It was a dress. It had no sleeves. It was sparkly.
"No!" I cried indignantly. "That is not modest!"
"What's wrong with it mama? Its so pretty!"
It attracts attention to your busom! I replied fervently. An elderly woman behind me laughed and said "That child ain't got boobs"
It doesn't matter. My daughter was not going to wear sparkles or sleeveless things because it attracts attention to her body. I don't want anyone looking at my baby with lust.
No pants. Long skirts only. Sleeves to her elbows. NO SPARKLES. No open toed shoes.
My daughter won't be a harlot.
