Spongebob Bathing Suit for girls... UGH!

I'm sorry, but I think Spongebob Squarepants is ugly and disgusting. I used to not let the girls watch it. I am good about saying no to things I don't believe they should be doing. But somehow Spongebob crept in thanks to some babysitters who will remain anonymous (you know who you are!) and I don't make them turn it when he comes on Nick Jr. So Kourtney is obsessed with the ugly square animated whatever the heck he is.

Which brings me to yesterday. Kourtney's current bathing suit isn't fitting like it needs to so I took her to Walmart to pick out a new one. I had visions of cute tankinis and sporty little suits. When we got there Spongebob Squarepants was plastered all over PINK bathing suits. There were, of course, other suits that were adorable. But Kourtney begged me for Spongebob. There was no way I was looking at that ugly creature all summer on my beautiful daughter. I'm sorry if any of you reading this have pink bathing suits with Spongebob on them. It is just not my style!

In the end she chose a full piece, blue, High School Musical bathing suit but only because it had silver sparkling stars. Not because she likes (or has even ever watched HSM). My mom told me they did try to watch HSM at Christmas but Kourtney wasn't interested. Oh well, I let her get what she wanted instead of the adorable tankini I had in mind. I have to let her be her own person. She is, after all, 5 going on 16 these days.
