Such Cuteness!

Have you seen this commercial? These firecrackers remind me of my older niece, who is usually seen dressed in something precious, just like these girls are:

Oh how I love my boys, but watching something like this I want to jump up and down and yell "I want a daughter, dang it! Gimme one NOW!"

Some people have commented elsewhere* that this is inappropriate - disrespectful, s*xy and materialistic. As to the last point, well, it's a commercial - of course it's materialistic! And on the first two points - I'm usually hyper-sensitive to kids acting older than they should, but I really don't see that here. Maybe it's too many years in Texas talking, but they're just cheerleaders, for Heaven's sake! And could they have more clothes on? I just don't see anything here but extreme cuteness.

There's my two cents. As always.

*Actually in the comments - I don't think Barbara is being overly judgmental - she just raised the question and some Scroogish moms ran with it.

I think the clothes in the commercial are really cute and would love to dress my girl up like that is I had the money. BUT, I don't like the commercial because of how sassy the girls are. I could never allow my daughter to talk that way to me. I think of all the little girls who will watch it and try to imitate. Not good. I didn't particularly find the girls overly sexy considering every inch of their skin was covered (it might be to sexy without the tights), I just didn't like the message the commercial was sending.
