Thanks to the three children that surround me every day, I am the witness to brilliant comebacks and hilarious retorts.
And today, a selection of what could turn out to be an inspiring thematic: #DressUpYourLife:
“Moment of loneliness when your 7yo finds your Batman cape way better than his but it’s actually your lawyer’s robe #DressedUpAsALawyer #DressUpYourLife”
“Moment of loneliness when your teen tells you that you really look like Harry Potter in your lawyer’s robes #DressedUpAsALawyer #DressUpYourLife”
“Moment of loneliness when you’re wearing jeans and your 7yo looks at you and says “oh, you’re not dressed up as a lawyer today, Mom” #DressedUpAsALawyer #DressUpYourLife”
“Moment of loneliness when your 7yo notices you’re wearing eyesahdow and goes “oh yes that’s a part of your costume!” #DressedUpAsALawyer #DressUpYourLife”
“When my son was 4yo he thought my job was to eat because that white thing on my lawyer’s robe is obviously a bib #DressedUpAsALawyer #DressUpYourLife”
“Moment of loneliness when your 7yo calls the restaurant waiter ‘Mister Batman’ because he’s wearing black #TopEducation #DressUpYourLife”
“When you realise that your son is wearing his swimsuit over his jeans as he runs out of the house claiming that he’s Superman #MyDreamLife #DressUpYourLife”.
“You make the effort of wearing dresses, heels. And when your son draws you at school you look like Mrs. Potato #UhumExcuseMe #IsThisAJoke #DressUpYourLife”
Strangely enough, I don’t think that this childish logique of dressing up, cross-dressing or role-taking is very different from the adult logique that unravels when we choose our clothes every morning. Knowing what we must face that day, we often try to select an outfit that fits our obligations and our mood that day.
