I just found an unopened package of girls' underwear in Maya's closet. (I apparently bought it a long time ago under the foolishly misguided assumption that she might have actually needed it last year. BWAHAHAHAHA...) Anyway, I found and opened the package today. Now remember, this is underwear sized for a THREE year old girl. Not a 17 year old slut, a THREE year old girl.
The first two pairs were cute, just multi-colored stripes. Fine. No problem. The third pair in the package? Not so fine. This one said "Teenager" on it in bright sparkly letters, RIGHT ABOVE A PAIR OF LUSCIOUS RED LIPS! I'm sorry, but WTF!!! Why in god's name does a THREE year old (did I mention that she is ONLY THREE?!?) need a pair of sexy lips in the middle of her crotch?!?!? I am so completely skeeved out. Now, Maya goes through underwear at a fairly fast rate (what? accidents? no, of course not...), but still. I just can't see myself putting this Lolita-esque disaster on a preschooler. Yuck! Not that anyone but her family, and her teachers, and whatever random strangers happen to come and knock on the door while she's wandering around in her skivvies are ever likely to see it, but still...
Why on earth would someone even make something like this? Why on earth should a 3 year old have any undergarment even remotely reeking of something sexual. Now I'm not a particularly paranoid mother, I don't see pedophiles around every corner, but this just really strikes me as wrong. Just plain wrong.
Am I crazy or do you agree? (Or both, can't rule out that possibility, can we?)
