dressing daughters

...is the worst. The end

Just kidding. Mostly. But I'll bet some of you #girlmoms will relate so hard to this post. When our daughters were babies and toddlers, it was REALLY FUN to dress them, right?

white jumpsuits FTW

Nothing strikes fear into a mom's heart like an all white outfit. Because, KIDS, y'all. Kids have an internal radar for anything pristine, and will basically find, seek, and destroy. 

They will use Cheeto fingers.

They will use mud and/or dirt.

They will use snot and boogers. 

They'll use things I haven't even considered yet, because THEY ARE TINY SAVAGES
