Farrah- From Teen Mom- Waxed and Tweezed Her 3 Year Olds Uni-Brow

Farrah from teen mom waxed and plucked her 3 year daughter Sophia's uni-brow and blogged about it.


So here I am faced with a standout historical moment in motherhood when I can confirm to myself that my little, adorable,most cuddle-able cutie, baby girl has a Unibrow :( , I felt bad for her...

So I told sophia (my daughter who is a late 3 years old) of the little issue on her brow...so I tryed to wax her, the second a dab hit the Uni, she touch it with the towel she had in her hand, 

So now sophia was freaking out,
You don't say...
PLOT TO END THIS: Sophia feel a sleep, I got my tweezers and Pluck-pluck-pluck......soph was now saying ouch or anything and still was asleep, I got most of it off...
Plucking is torture ... for me at least
Ah I feel like a good mom:) other moms tell me your ideas!  
*Facepalm*

Leilani was born with a mustache, a uni-brow and three bright red marks on over each of her eyes and under her "uni-brow". I remember telling my sisters I didn't know what to do about it when she got older. " I don't want her to be hairy," I told them "but there is no way I'm going to put chemicals on her face.

Time passed and I did nothing. Not because it didn't bug me, not because the spots and hair went away-which most eventually did- but because I FORGOT about it. I was too busy dealing with real life altering decisions and situations to l have time to spare to worry about something so minuet.

A three year old doesn't understand what a uni-brow is and if they do its because they are taught what it is and whether its bad or not.

Fast forward six year and Leilani asked me about her mustache and we dealt with it.

It's very sad that a beautiful young woman like Farrah is so insecure in herself. An even more sad that she is projecting those insecurities onto her three year old daughter.

I don't think Farrah is a bad mom. I think she is a young woman who had a lot on insecurities, got on television, had them broadcasted to the world and possibly picked some more up along the way.

Remember we are our children's keepers. It is up to us to teach them how to love themselves and to make sure we aren't-knowingly or unknowingly- projecting our insecurities on to our children. Little girls already have enough to worry about with unrealistic images of beauty being pounded into them at a young age.

What's your take?

  1. I can't believe she did that?! That is beyond! LOL. The wax is hot and it hurts. Ouch! And the tweezing hurts too. But, I wonder... is this that much different from piercing a daughter's ear? I don't have a daughter, but I think I would def pierce her ear if I did have one.

    1. I have to loosely quote someone who replied that question in a way I really agreed with. They said that it's not the act of tweezing/waxing or piercing the ears it's the reasons why a parent chooses too. People generally don't say my baby/toddler NEEDS to have their ears pierced to make them look better. The piercing of ears is also a cultural thing and does not warrant as much up keeping as hair body removal.
      Leilani has her ears pierced and so did I at a young age.
