'You look very summery' My kids dressed me part 2
The campaign is now starting to snowball which is fantastic. Pippa at Story of Mum has been in The Cornishman and we have all also been featured in the Daily Mail online!
Part 2 at The Bear and Miss Rabbit HQ
I first let my kids dress me on Feburary 8th, on a Sunday, safe from the school run! But – on a cold but sunny Friday morning, infact, this morning – I did it again!
I have to say; I think I got off quite lightly. But, it was still a great insight into the minds of my kids.
Their process of dressing me works like this:
1. Choose clothes we like
2. Choose more clothes we like
3. Put them in a pile
4. Mummy puts them on
They seem to select clothes they like based on colour – they like colour, and design. So today was about scarves (yes – plural as I am wearing 2 of them), shiny red shoes, and a top that they like as they like the lace on the shoulder.
However, there is no consideration from them on weather! So despite it being a glorious sunny day, the outfit consisted of no warm socks or a coat!
I think I have got of lightly today! #mykidsdressedme
2 scarves as they couldn't decide on one they both liked!
Shiny red shoes!
Some bling – available on the top of a cake from a bakers near you!
And of course – some princess jewellery
I did get a few odd looks on the school run! However – I think this is because I was a blast of colour on a cold February morning! As I entered the classroom I saw a sea of parents in hats, gloves and dark coats….
I appeared like a springtime flower! 'You look summery' was the most popular comment.
