This is What It's Come To

Waiting for my physical therapy appointment to start, I thumb through a recent issue of Us magazine. [No, I'm not making up a whole story to cover up the fact that I subscribe to or regularly buy Us.] There's a feature called "Who Wore it Best." I am in enough dental and doctor offices to know that this kind of feature pits two women wearing the same outfit against each other.


But this issue has one with these girls:






Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable that we are pitting two- or three-year-old girls against each other. Seriously? That's what it's come to?


Want to guess which one wore it best? You know, don't you? No fat is good fat, we believe. Not even scrumptdillyishous baby fat.


Thank you, society. I'm so sorry to be a member.

Plus, the cargo pants totally throw the whole look....
