Day 4 of the Kids Fashion Week is all about the beach. Naturally, the kids were in their bathing suits. I pity them for wearing skimpy suits and exposing so much skin especially inside Dubai’s mall where it’s freezing.
The dressing room is far from the fashion show venue. The kids had to go out in the basement parking where it’s hideously hot and hellishly humid then come inside the freezing mall.
I captured a photo of the kids looking like this:
It’s really a wonder no one was sneezing as they came up the stage. I wish I had brought Pristine’s bath robe to cover her up. Poor girl.
But afterwards, the kids ran to the stage and maybe felt warmer. The fashion show started on time and the kids are getting used to the drill. They all wait for their turn to come the stage, amazingly calm as ever.
Can you see a hint of purplish-black spot on the right side of her forehead? That was the bump she had. Hadn’t been for the beige concealer, it really looked scary.
But the show must go on…
After the show:
The kids after the show, competing as to who gets to be in the center! Right after taking this photo, I saw my daughter getting elbowed and pushed back by butt (really!) by the girl next to her. Being non-confrontational (to a fault!) kid as always, she never elbowed back or said anything and just turned back in defeat and looked for another place.
My husband was so upset since he took the video and saw the entire kid drama.
Pristine had a long lecture that night. We (most especially, my huz) explained to her that she should not let people (even kids) elbow her like that. Everyone needs to stand up for himself/herself. She doesn’t need to elbow back but has to declare her own place without violence.
I just wish that girl’s parents gave a lecture to their daughter too. That hurting other people in order to reach the top (or in this case, take the center stage) is not a good thing.
