making comments about skids
fyi- i don't have kids, i'm 29 and really don't understand the sun shining out of your kids ass concept.
soooo monday night- BF's daughter, who is TEN, is in a singing competition exactly like american idol except for a little town. i didn't go to the show but he sends me a picture of her after wards with flowers. my jaw dropped. she was wearing a black mini skirt, black ripped stockings and a black belly shirt (this is not a skinny girl we are talking about either)- not only was the outfit WHOREndous, she looked like a baby prostitute. i texted back and said i'm so glad she did well and not trying to be mean but don't you think that outfit is a little inappropriate for a 10 year old? well he flew off the handle. we literally fought the entire next day. i didn't say anything mean at all, just that in my opinion the outfit was inappropriate for a 10 yr old.
i told him sorry i am not allowed to say anything that isn't absolutely glowing about your precious children- can i not say anything that isn't positive and wonderful about them? it is so frustrating. of course my mom tells me you can't say anything negative about any one's children- no matter what it is they will be offended. i can see a friend or someone i am not close with- but my boyfriend? i told him i would say the same exact thing to my sisters if my niece's wore that outfit at age 10.
should i just keep my mouth shut and stick to the rule "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all"? i'm having a difficult time finding my place, especially because i don't know what it is like to be a parent.
