Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi had to go back to her Jersey Shore roots to stand up to some Internet haters this weekend.
The 29-year-old star posted a photo of herself and daughter Giovanna getting ready for her dance recital. In the adorable picture, Snooki is applying mascara to her 2-year-old. "This is the best Mother's Day gift to me!," she added to the caption.
Some followers showed support for the reality star, and added their own mommy-memories from their daughters' past shows. Others, however, couldn't help but criticize the star for putting makeup on her young daughter. Despite the criticism, Snooki stuck to her choice to do up her daugher (especially considering it's a natural thing to put a little something on, regardless of age).
After the beauty session, Polizzi posted another photo with Giovanna just before she took the stage. "So proud of my little girl!" she wrote. "(instead of not posting my kids for the people who respect and appreciate their photos, I will turn off the comments section. I don't need assholes telling me how to raise my child and judge them. I'm a damn good mom and know what I'm doing. Well most of the time.) Happy Mother's Day to all you kick ass Mamas out there!
