Like Mother Like Daughter

One of the things I love about having a baby is dressing them up in nice clothes. These days I much prefer to buy Paige something new than myself. I think every mother feels the same way. Something changes inside you when you have a baby, you suddenly don't want to buy anything for yourself. A guilt washes other over and you get sucked into all the cute children's clothes.

Mark will send me into town shopping with strict instructions to not buy anything for Paige because he knows what I'm like. Time and time again I come away with loads of things for her and nothing for me. I don't do it on purpose it just sort of happens. Mark normally has to go into town and buy something for me without me knowing. I normally leave not so subtle hints for him around the house even thought he does know me pretty well.

He did this not too long ago with some converse. He knew my sad grey pumps were wearing out so got me a beautiful pair of bright pink ones that I love. I know wear them pretty much everyday and love them.

Paige had started to outgrow her old shoes so Mark decided to get some cute kids converse trainers so she could match mummy. 

Now we both have the same pair and look very cute in my opinion. Paige loves doing everything that I do so I think that she loves them as much as I love mine.

Do you feel the same mummy guilt that I do when buying things for myself?

Thanks for reading,

  3. I feel guilty if I ever buy anything for myself! I always see things the children need first. Those trainers are lovely!

  4. I bet it is so hard not to buy things when you have a little girl. They're so many pretty items about for little girls.
