The teenage mothers from MTV’s “Teen Mom” reality show have done some crazy things, but Farrah Abraham may have just worked herself to the top of the list after she talked about waxing her 3-year-old’s “unibrow” on her blog.
The 20-year-old decided to go through with the modern-day torture technique because she "felt bad for her" daughter Sophia.
Keep in mind that this is coming from a young woman who is not even old enough to legally drink and has already spent $16,000 on plastic surgery, including a breast augmentation, a chin implant and rhinoplasty.
The reality star admitted on her Sulia blog that she "could not ignore" the fuzz that her little girl had in between her brows, so she decided to help her daughter out by getting rid of the extra hair.
"So here I am faced with a standout historical moment in motherhood when I can confirm to myself that my little, adorable, most cuddle-able cutie, baby girl has a Unibrow :( ," Abraham wrote, and then added, "I felt bad for her, and I started asking friends.... is this hair just going to fall out... is it just hormones at this age? Well the hair didn't go away and others started saying it was here to stay."
Instead of letting her daughter walk around with some extra baby fuzz, she decided to remove their hair and potentially set the toddler up for body image issues in her future.
She explained the process to the readers of her blog:
“So I told sophia (my daughter who is a late 3 years old) of the little issue on her brow, and I showed her how I waxed mine off, so I tryed to wax her, the second a dab hit the Uni, she touch it with the towel she had in her hand,
“UHHH so now, wax was in the towel, and I yanked it back ASAP, but fuzz was not stuck to the wax stuck to her Uni, OMG moment, So now sophia was freaking out, so I had to act like it was a cool science project to get the wax off.
“PLOT TO END THIS: Sophia feel a sleep, I got my tweezers and Pluck-pluck-pluck......soph was now saying ouch or anything and still was asleep, I got most of it off and then finally she woke up..I went to sleep .
“The next morning I showed her and told her how well she did and she didn't even know, She was more intrigued now to be ok with upkeeping her non-unibrow. I could tell she was proud.”
She ultimately ended the post with "Ah I feel like a good mom:)."
Was the child really proud, or was she just happy that her mother seemed relieved? It seems highly debatable whether Abraham was a “good mom” for waxing her 3-year-old’s “unibrow.”
While there were some mixed reviews in the comments on her blog post, most people were appalled that Abraham had decided to wax Sophia’s face, with many saying “you’re insane” and asking whether she was joking.
