Reading Metropolitan Mum’s blog recently about her little girl and fashion made me think. Alright, so I’ve never been on trend and I have to agree with Metropolitan Mum’s theory, my children are far more trendy than me. However, I think this morning things came to a head. I thought I would try to smarten myself up a bit, in order to make myself feel a bit better. I got a nice pencil skirt out the of the cupboard and was going to team it with a casual but smartish (Fat Face) top. I had the following conversation;
Toddler Boy; ” No! Like Nana”
Me; “What you mean this skirt?” OMG I’m turning entirely into my mother
Toddler Boy; “Like Nana wear, you wear this” Points to crumpled up pair of dirty baby sick encrusted jeans lying in a heap on the floor.
Me; “Mummy wear this”
Toddler Boy; ” Noooooooo, this mummy!!!”
Me; “OK, then, do mummy’s only wear jeans then?”
Toddler Boy; “Yes, mummy wears this, mmm, mmm ROBOT mmm”
My children clearly don’t recognise or feel comfortable unless I am dressed like a bag lady. Perhaps this is a good thing? Any new mummy’s out there I would urge you not to make this fashion mistake, rotate your wardrobe and bin those jeans.
