"Pageant child"

The dialogue in this news clip about the "toddlers and tiaras" trend is predictable, banal, and not very informative to the extent that I wound up muting it.  But the behavior of the child is interesting.  Perhaps she's just a normal five-year-old girl acting up when she sees a camera or monitor.  Or maybe she's been in a few too many pageants...

  1. Haha! That's a five-year-old who sees herself in a large live monitor for the first time. Any kid that age would probably do the same, or worse.

  2. Looks like a normal five year old to me, other than the big hair, make-up, etc.
    If I am ever interviewed on tv I'd probably do the same thing. :)

  3. Reminds me of one of my students - bright, talented girl who just can't sit still - and she's nine! Just a normal, non-shy five-year-old.
    But plucked eyebrows and makeup? Sad.

  4. That was my 4 1/2 year old kid... exactly. Just a girl, with more makeup than he usually wears.

  5. Think the Mom should be slapped up side the head. The poor kid is probably ruined for life.

  6. that seems like a normal kid excited to see herself!
