Utah Bow Size Disorder (UBSD)

So we all kind of know that the size of girls baby bows is a little out of control. Especially in one state.... Utah. We've all seen it. The first time we see it we think "That mom's crazy". Then the next time we see it we think "Well maybe it's helping the baby with neck strength, and her core muscles".

And we continue to lose our own good judgement. Before we know it we are asking "Where did you get that bow", then we are suddenly wanting to learn how to make those ridiculously large bows. At the peak of this we begin to buy the bows from Etsy shops all over. Then one morning we wake up to find that we have about 50 lbs worth of bows.

I call this disease UBSD. Utah Bow Size Disorder. And I too have fallen into this trap. BUT since I am all about keeping up with the newest and greatest trends, I have started my own. It's now not about size, it's about quantity. Laney will be the hippest girl on the block. And yes the first time you look at this picture you will think "Is it safe for Jennifer to be parenting". But before you know it you will be wanting to know how I came up with such a brilliant plan.

It does take awhile to get the bows on just right. This will help teach your child patience and good head control.

She may not lovee it at first, but this helps teach our daughters that Beauty is #1. And as you can see, they eventually love the look. Ahh yes Delaney, your bows will take you far in life. I can see it now!

Are you just trying to cover up the fact that Tommy gave her an unscheduled haircut?

elizabeth said...

Oh my gosh. Those pictures cracked me up. She has enough hair to attach all of those bows?

Oh silly me! I just made a second bow holder when really all I need to do is put more bows on Sariah's head so I don't have so many to store!! Genius!!

THAT is too funny. Especially considering while we were at Disneyland everybody...I mean everybody commented about my girls' flowers/bows. I came home thinking it must just be a Utah thing. I guess it is!
Your Delaney is a cutie pie, by the way!

Sie said...

Are those bows attached to a hat? Like a nice warm beanie to keep her little head warm in the winter? Seriously Jen, soooo funny. Best part of my day!

This made me LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!! I have long thought that Utah women had all kinds of disorders (excessive makeup...big hair...too tight of shirts, etc) but that's just me. Meanwhile, i continue to laugh over this post!!!!!!!!!!!

Meg said...

Thank goodness for your post...I thought you were DEAD. Come to find out you've been making bows!

Denae said...

Amen to that. Okay, well sort of... I don't think I'll ever give in to the bow thing, but they do look less & less ridiculous to me.
Thanks for the hilarious comment on my blog my friend. You are just so funny & great & wonderful & lovely & rosy & good smelling & all around perfect. Our friendship openings generally have been in the out of town department & I am not sure what we have in local availability, but I will check on that & get back to you. I'm sure we could finagle around a bit though & squeeze in some pant peeing for you.:) Thanks!
