Fun Monday #15



OK so I wasn't going to participate this week. The challenge chosen by Julie was very good, she challenged us to post about:

"Your best spy camera photo and story about the photo".

I had a very busy weekend, I helped organise a fundraising event at my youngest children's school and celebrated a bit much to remember to even take any photographs. The next day I was too ill and busy to even think of looking for photographs. Yesterday I caught up with my poor neglected house and family and all thoughts of Fun Mondaying were far from my mind. Today I went into Dublin, hoping to meet Sabrina. Unfortunately it was not to be but I did come home with four large shopping bags (mostly presents for family members). As I was walking back to the train station I caught a glimpse of the perfect spy picture, unfortunately I was laden down with six bags and had no time to dump them and take a picture as they passed me by so instead I'll have to describe it:

A mother (about 40) and her daughter (about 10) wearing matching clothes. Yuk. The clothes were actually quite nice, a denim jacket, brown skirt, tights and black boots but purlease not both mother and daughter in exactly the same clothes. Definitely NOT a good look.

It always cracks me up to see moms and kids dressing the same, although it's kind of freaky if you ask me.

Robin said...

I did that occasionally when Rachel was young (Laura Ashley coordinating dresses), but she would croak if I suggested it now! Sometimes we have on the same general color scheme now, but since we own NOTHING exactly the same, she's okay with that...and it IS always an accident if that occurs.

Sounds like you might've been having fun lately...;).

Ughh, sounds horrible.

Amy W said...

I bought one outfit the same as Ashley once, but never wore it.

Good thought on the spy picture!

my4kids said...

I had a dress once that was the same fabric as the girls but never did wear it the same time as them. Never realy had occasion where I thought it would be "cute" or whatever...

Asha said...

HeHe!! Lucky that woman has a daughter who likes to wear clothes like her mom's or is it the mom is trying to be "hip"!!;D

Great post for Monday even without pics.

enidd said...

nearly as bad as matching husband and wife. yeck.

Tonya said...

I would have liked to see that.. I have never really noticed that happening before but I am not very perceptive.. lol

melissa said...

Yeah. It's probably better you didn't capture that one on film. ;)

Karmyn R said...

I've seen tons of kids dressed similarly, but not the moms - yuck.

Unless they had just been to a really crowded amusement park - then dressing the same would be good to keep track of each other.

Gag me with a spoon!

Pamela said...

I can imagine this just as easily as I can imagine having a spy cam!!
Ha.

ChrisB said...

This would have been worth seeing; what's the story about not meeting Sabrina?

Beccy said...

Nikki as I said, they were nice clothes but just too twee on the pair of them.

Ooops Robin, I hope I didn't offend you but I thought it made the mother look a bit old and sad.

It was indeed Hellojed.

Amy, I wish I had time to take a photo but they were past me in a flash.

Methinks you have good taste then Terri.

Asha, the clothes suited them both, just not at the same time.

I probably could have snapped a few of those Enidd!

Tonya, I bet you would have had your lovely new camera out ready to take photos.

Melissa, it might have given us a laugh though.

Karmyn, although I wouldn't do it I don't mind seeing children dressed alike, it's a bit cheesy when an adult is involved.

Consider yourself gagged Lisa!

Not a pretty site Pamela and a great reason to have a spy camera.

Mum, I couldn't get in touch with Sabrina to finalise our meeting, a shame but I got time to fit in some shopping!

Willowtree said...

What's the big deal? I dress like my mum all the time.

Tiger Lamb Girl said...

My daughter would kill me if I tried to dress even remotely like her. Though she does say I dress hip for a mother, and don't embarrass her with mom-jeans.

laurie said...

let's see--if i dressed like my mom, i'd have to start with giant white tennis shoes. then black pants. always black. then hot pink on top. then curly white hair..... nope. can't see it. but if i ever did, i imagine the spy cameras woudl be working double-time.

great post! made me laugh at 5 a.m., and that's tough to do.

frannie said...

I dress PapaT and the baby alike all the time. check out the pics on my blog from yesterday, if you don't believe me.

I am a dork!

Sally Lomax said...

I know, I'll take the curtains down and nake outfits for all seven of us!

Sally Lomax said...

Slick said...

Ha...you know the daughter won't be caught dead wearing the same outfir as her Mom in just a few years ;)
