Wow! I know kids are growing up faster these days but this seems a bit much:

"Tinker Bell, at least, is timeless: in March, Target will introduce a collection themed to the Disney character by Pixi cosmetics. The same month, the chain will begin stocking Willa, a beauty line aimed at the 7-to-14 set."

I only have boys but I'm definitely going to look around my youngest son's classroom next time I'm there to see if I spot any 1st and 2nd grade girls with makeup on- eek!

Well, hopefully I won't get flamed for coming out of the woodwork and saying this but.... my 6 year old girl wears lipgloss. I finally relented after she was the only one left of her friends who wasn't allowed to wear it.

I don't think lip gloss is a big deal.
