All moms have a part time job to annoy their children.
Yes, you have to eat that.
Yes, you have to clean that.
Yes, you have to wear that.
Well, my first memory is my mom teaching me to skip (Awwww!) followed closely by the memory of my mom forcing me to wear this dress for a picture. There was definitely a tantrum that ensued because it was itchy and had weird sleeves.
What's this mom to do but to now torture my own girls with the itchy dress!
We all survived the two hours of itchy dress torture from our moms. And sometimes our mom's really do know best, because I love all my pictures of my girls. All taken a the same age (5) and with all the same poses, it's fun to see the resemblances and differences. When it comes to mother-daughter traditions we all know, "No Pain, No Gain"
