My daughter has caught a case of “I want to dress like you Mommy!” And I have to admit that I may have a slight fever! There is often angst among parents when it comes to dressing like their child in a matching outfit. Is it corny or cool? Well, the masses have answered and the vote is “cool”! Dressing like your mini-me has even gotten some celebrity street cred these days with top stars donning matching outfits with their kids.
“Mommy and me” fashion gives both parents and their kids enjoyment. As parents we know that this phase may be oh so short lived and since your kids thinks you’re cool right now it’s your obligation to ride that until the wheels fall off.
