I work from home. The only reason I get dressed at all is because I feel the teachers at kindy will judge me if I drop Miniway of in my pyjamas. 

Even when I go out in public the most makeup I ever put on is mascara, eyeliner and a little blush. It’s 2 minutes tops. 

Also my only skincare is washing my face with water ... I’m pretty fat though so that fills the wrinkles right in. 😂

Can I be BEC here? That is an outfit for a teenager. It’s not age-appropriate for either Allie or Alyssa.

I'm a bit confused. What isn't age appropriate about it?

Mainly the ripped jeans. Now that I think about it, I don’t like how the rips in the jeans match. It makes it clear that they’re not beloved well-worn jeans. The sandals also don’t look right for a girl Allie’s age. But I’m from Florida and I’ve seen much worse.

Ok, you don’t like the outfit. That’s a different thing.

If Alyssa were in a different lane, I could see her zooming down age-inappropriate for tots. Like a pageant mom level of inappropriate. I think she will stay clear of that, thank goodness. I don’t like bikinis on little girls and I don’t see her going that far off the rails.

Alyssa just turned 24 years old. She's too old for distressed jeans? Damn, my thirtysomething year old ass needs to throw some shit out...

Someone needs to tell my daughter who is Alyssa's age that she needs to toss some jeans out, too.

The only wrong item in the outfit are Allie's sandals. She can easily fall down or hurt her feet when playing.

But the jeans? Those are trendy and sooo normal. The blouses are nice and comfortable. The buns are great. Alyssa is 24, but even my skinny 54 year old boss wears ripped jeans and rocks it!

Hahaha right! I could replicate that look in 5 mins without leaving the house and Im closer to 40 then I care to admit! 

Also i find it weirdly satisfying (in a non sexual way!) when these women have their hair up! Wtf is wrong with me LOL

That outfit is fine for Alyssa. Distressed jeans do look weird on toddlers though.

I'll have to tell my soon to be 52 YO SisterIL who wears ripped jeans on the time-

I think it's a cute picture.

Yeah, I’ll agree with this. I think they both look fine, but the shoes and ripped leggings look isn’t something I’m used to on young kids. If she can run and play in that then I don’t have a real issue with it.

I’m also not really a fan of mom and daughter matching outfits (or sibling matching outfits*.) Allie seems happy though and I get the sense she’s the type of kid who would absolutely love to dress like her mom. If she’s happy and healthy that’s really all that matters. 

*This is nothing against other parents who feel differently. It’s 100% just personal taste. The only time I’d ever say anything negative about it is if it was a situation like the Bates or Duggars where all the kids looked like tiny Stepford clones of each other.

There is exactly one family photo of my sisters and I dressed alike (I came a decade after the two) and I feel so sorry for them. :pb_lol: I'm not big on matching outfits either.

I think the outfit is OK but in general I don't like the way Alyssa dresses those kids. It seems like "Can they run and play?" and "Are they comfortable?" are the last things on her mind.

While I agree the jeans look *a little* silly on a toddler, I wouldn’t think much if it hadn’t been commented on. How is that at all age inappropriate for a fashionable 24 year old?! I loveeee matching my kids 😂😂 they are 3 and 5 year old boys so they don’t reallt care at all what they wear. My husband likes to remind they aren’t twins 🙄

I hope she lets them evolve their own styles in a  few years. That seems important to her and potentially something that they could share interest in. That would be a lovely evolotuion of the matchiness.

Back in the day when my Mom made all of our clothes (in the 60s/70s), we matched all the time.  Gotta admit, I loved looking like her.

Alyssa would save a lot of time if she got a newer mini van. As a mom to littles, I occasionally regret not buting a mini van. It would make things easier with car seats. Mini vans are lower to the ground so the toddlers and older can get in by themselves. Plus you have more room to reach in the back seat to help buckle a car seat. You don’t have to put down a middle seat to do it (which is what I think Alyssa has to do). Plus many newer mini vans have doors that will slide open and closed by themselves. Which helps a lot when your hands are full of babies and their crap.

@JermajestyDuggar I think your autocorrect is correct (and a bit racist). Alyssa would save a lot of time if she got a Dominican. :pb_lol:

some of the SUVs will fit 3 across in the middle seat. I know mine will and so will my husband's. My old Caravan fit 3 seats in the middle seat too.

I bet it will. We can expect Webster #4 in late July/early August.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
