Toddlers & Tiara's

I admit, I have to watch this show. It's almost too bizarre not too. I have to stare and marvel at the parents thought process, or lack of. My boys will even ask if I have any on dvr.

I used it first as a learning lesson. Example- If you keep treating your brother like that I will wax your eyebrows.
Only after a few moaning and groaning about watching it, did they quickly become open mouthed shocked zombies like me staring in horror and shock at the show. 

There are plenty of funny moments too, usually at the mothers expense in our home. It really shines a brilliant light upon me and my awesomeness when we see the crazies on the show.

Oh my gosh! The amount of money the parents put into this! It's just crazy. They are spending THOUSANDS of dollars for a chance to win a couple hundred. Yep. Makes total sense to me too.

I know TLC has gotten a lot of bad press for creating the show. I think what they are doing could, in the end, help people. I know if I saw myself on tv with all my crazy outtakes panned together, I'd take a step back and think twice about what I was doing. If I saw my child's interview saying they want to take a break from pageants, I'd listen.
They aren't creating it, they are just filming it to show you how crazy you are.

But then again, I'd never be dumb enough to spend that much money, fake my daughter/son up and parade him/her on a flimsy stage for a chance at $500. I'd take the $4000 we spent, buy them a crown, since that seems to be all they want, and invest the rest in the real world. Their education. But that's just crazy me.

Imagine my delight when I saw this video last week.

It's Leah Remini and Ashley Tisdale as a 'where are they now' of a mom and daughter duo from the show.
It has to be one of the most spot on mockeries I have ever seen.

Ashley Tisdale, amazing. We laugh so hard over her ney ney issues.
Leah Remini, how she kept a straight face, I have no idea. I'd love to know how many takes they had to do. Her expressions are priceless.



  1. This show astounds me! But when you start watching it, you just have to finish the episode for some crazy reason. And some of these moms wonder why their child is such a brat??? Have they looked in a mirror lately???

  2. I need to watch this. I used to own a sewing business and (it's terrible) but I would always cringe when someone bought a pageant dress or a flower girl's dress. People could get soooo mean about it--it was nuts.

    Thanks for your amazing comment today. It meant so much to me :)
    I LOVE your blog and am adding it to my list of favorites!

  3. P. S. The followers button showed up this time. I'm sooo excited!

  4. I have never watched this show, but one of my best friends loves it! It drives me crazy when I see these types of shows!! It is like watching a train wreck, and it's so sad when you see the parents treat the children this way! Thanks for your post! Great to visit from members to remember and vB!!

  5. Thanks Elisabeth! I thought I have been one of your followers for a while, I must have been a loyal stalker, Iam official now though!

    Kathy thanks for the visit!

  6. First let me say I love the title of your blog!!! I feel like that a lot of the time too: like I'm winging it.

    I watch Toddlers and Tiaras too, and I do so with gleeful horror. I love the way they put the show together. First a shot of the mom telling how her daughter loves getting a spray tan, and then the next shot showing the daughter screaming her head off saying she doesn't want a spray tan!

    Got here from Members to Remember


  7. That is so funny about threatening to wax the eyebrows. That show just has some really nutty parents. It's like watching a trainwreck--it's terrible but you can't help it.

  8. Momfever,Thanks! I think we are all just winging it! I can't tell you how many times I have been mistaken for someone who knows what I'm doing!
    I take the old saying just smile and nod literally.
    I love when the crazy moms are whispering to their daughter to behave because of the camera's. There was that one really crazy one a week or so ago, she was whispering it, so the typed it out for us then later when her daughter didn't do as well as she drilled her to do, she cried telling her it was her beauty.

  9. I catch it from time to time...the parents are more of a "SHOW" then the kids somethines LOL
    Stopping in with vB event Members to Remember for 10/5 - 10/6
