I found the mum of Eden (the girl who won the Ultimate title) to be the most adjusted of them all. Sure, she has spent over $60 grand (in her estimate) on her daughter in the pageants, and sure, Eden can be a brat, but then again what four-year old isn't? It also helped that she's been doing it since she was very young and that the mum has ways to help get her in line without disciplining.
The mum of the 5 girls was definitely revolting in how she treated Ashlynn-and when she won Director's Choice, I felt like it was poetic justice. It was almost like she got the castoffs of the two girls, like she was the whipping boy. I have to give that dad kudos for taking the brattier kid out of the pageant, but I honestly think that the mom may have helped feed the monster.
And for the mum of the two boys? No mum, in their right mind, should put their two-week old newborn on the pageant stage. Not even two months-wait until at least a year. Even then I am not crazy about babies on the stage-how can you tell the presence?
