Dressing Like a Tween

Today I decided to get a little funky with my clothes.  I dressed up in a cute tween Christmas shirt that had big-eyed animals on it with sayings like, "All I want for Christmas is the cutest puppy ever, the coolest friends ever, the sweetest candy ever," etc.  I topped it off with borrowed candy cane earings from my daughter.

I actually went to a Christmas cookie exchange dressed like this. 

When my daughter came home from school she said,  "Awww.  I love that shirt!  Can I have it for Christmas?"  Then she noticed my earings.  "Did you take my earings?"

"Borrowed them."

"You look like me!"

Later that evening, a young lady came to the door with some kind of fundraiser.  I answered the door.  She looked at me.  "Hi,"  she said.  "Can I talk to your mother?"

She couldn't believe it when I grinned and said, "I am the mother!"



  1. Made me smile,too. Now I don't feel so old!


  2. Haha! Love it. I have to be careful of that, since I like to buy my jeans and tops in the Junior/Teen section of stores. I don't want to look like I'm trying too hard to look young. LOL I just like the styles!

  3. There are some cute styles, aren't there?
