I'm a bit neurotic {you think?} so reading C Jane's post about her sister's request for no plastic, no teenage pop singers and no exploited super heros for her kids for Christmas had me laughing out loud {some would say LOL, I wouldn't, it's not my thing}.
I, too, am resisting the Hannah Montana craze that surrounds my girls. I've gone so far as to tell C that I don't like Hannah Montana, only to fret for days about how I may have damaged her young psyche. So out of my guilt I bought her a Hannah Montana lolipop (guitar shaped, hey it insprires great music) as a 'treat' - which she promptly threw in the trash professing, "I don't like it! Hannah Montana is not good, right Mommy!?!"
Now I've confused the poor child and I am potentially raising a fundamentalist teenage pop-biggot. Good thing there are microphones, pink wigs and plenty of plastic awaiting her under the tree, she'll be good-as-commercialized in no time.
