of weird to take a toddler to get a mani-pedi?

This girl I went to high school with has a daughter who is 2 or 3, and my former classmate just posted a Facebook picture of her kid at a salon. I suppose if a kid is old enough to more or less dress themselves, I guess they are old enough to want to have pretty nails, but the idea of taking a toddler to a salon is strange to me. Aside from the obvious feminist issues at hand, how do get a little kid to sit still that long? Why would you bother to spend that kind of money on a toddler? What kind of weird chemicals are you exposing your growing child to?

I'm not freaking out about this or condemning my classmate in any way, but I just saw that picture, and I was like, "Wait, what?"
