I realize this is an ongoing challenge that will not end today, but the hardest part of any goal is deciding to do it, right? So today I’m deciding to document this wonderful new year through photography. Plus, this will hopefully add some color to my blog.
THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR MATCHING
I love my fake Uggs. I love matching fashion with my 2-year-old daughter. I wonder if we’ll look at this picture in 10 years and share a good chuckle over wearing such ugly foot attire.
But in 10 years, she’ll be a tween. She'll be raging with hormones and mood swings, and she'll probably hate me by then. So instead of finding the humor in our matching ugly boots, she might just shriek that this photo is proof that I have been depriving her of haute couture her entire life (because they are clearly Ugg impostors and our jeans are clearly off-the-rack). Or she’ll rip it up to destroy the evidence that she ever deigned to dress like her old, fashion-challenged mother. Or, and this might be the worst offense, she'll refuse to even share the moment with me because spending time with a parental unit just isn't cool.
These visions almost convince me that the Terrible Twos aren't so bad. Almost.
I will continue to enjoy dressing my toddler like my very own mini me. I need to do it while I still can.
