Francesca has always been so gorgeous, in my opinion. And I love both the Affleck girls (& the entire family). So excited for them to bring another child in the world!

Am I the only one who thinks some of these kids are too young to wear long necklaces like that? I don’t let my kid put anything around her neck just in case it gets caught.

It happens–a classmate of mine in high school had a baby, and one day while she was in school and her toddler (he was two or three) was being watched by his grandmother, he hanged himself off the back of a chair. He had something around his neck, fell or jumped off the chair, as kids do all the time, but the cord around his neck got caught. His grandmother wasn’t far away, and he was old enough not to be watched every second. Or so they thought.

It was a terrible, terrible thing. My classmate, who had managed to come back to school after having a baby in 9th grade, left and never came back, I think she moved away to live with relatives. So sad.

Catca, I agree! I wore beaded necklaces as a child and so did every other girl I knew. But, why spend $150 on a beaded necklace for a kid? For me, the best part was making the necklace myself (the tackier the better:))

Frannie is so cute! I was once told that kids shouldn’t wear necklaces under the age of 3 – which means Zuma perhaps a bit young, but he’s not my son….

Silly me, just realised Zuma’s just turned 3, about a week ago?!, so scratch my earlier post, lol.

I have never heard of children having to be three before they can wear a necklace. Didn’t know there was an age on it……..where did you get that from? I know many children who wear them younger.
