Do I know you?

October 31, 2017

My mum has an original sense of style, so much so, that my bother used to pretend he didn’t know her when she came to pick him from school. When she cut her hair really short and dyed it berry red, he crossed to the other side of the street. So when my daughter very politely asks me not to wear certain outfits to school, I know not to take it personally. One day, she may embrace my style, much like my brother does our Mother’s. But she’s a a kid and she wants to fit in, not stand out. A bejewelled pink coat in the schoolyard is more spotlight than she’s comfortable with. “You can wear it anywhere else though, Mama.”
