Perhaps this has been discussed before and I missed it. So much has been said about JonBenet's exceptional beauty. Don't get me wrong, she was a pretty little girl. But as a mom of two girls, I find so much more beauty in pure innocence than in made up and dressed up girls putting on a show. My youngest, she is 5, looks a lot like JonBenet. Her favorite clothing consists of a pair of Mudd jeans or some overalls, and an I LOVE DADDY shirt of some sort. Also included would be one of her silly hats. There is nothing more beautiful than a little girl in denim and a hat chasing a butterfly, or blowing bubbles and then trying to catch them on her face. Yea, she likes to dress up, but it doesn't last long before she is back outside in her denim. The greatest thing about being a parent is just standing back and watching them be them, grow and develop into themselves. Sure they need guidance and structure, but they need to be themselves too. They need to be free to discover themselves and learn for themselves what they like. I have a lot of doubts about JonBenet wanting to be in the pageants, doing so many dance lessons and voice lessons. Girls that age have such short attention spans. They want to have fun and do their own things. I have seen a ton of professional photos of her, and a few "candids" but not that many of the second. Ofcourse there is all of the video of her, but has anyone seen any video that isn't from a beauty pageant? I wonder what she was really like, who she really was. I wonder if Patsy even knows. I don't think JonBenet ever got to know herself and just be a kid. I read that she was kind of bratty and spoiled. I don't think that was it. I think she was unhappy, and wanted to be herself instead of who Patsy wanted her to be. I don't think she had a say in much of her own life. That's enough to make anyone bratty!
