6 Hilarious Signs You're Dressing Too Much Like Your Kids

Do you want to dress like her?
We've all heard about the mom wardrobe. She carries a giant bag. She wears high-waisted jeans! But ladies, there's another fashion faux pas in the same vein that no one seems to want to talk about.

I'm referring, of course, to the mom who dresses a little too much like her kids. And by kids I mean people who are still in short pants and have an affinity for sucking down massive amounts of ketchup. Ladies, I hate to break it to you, but it's just not working for you.

I know this may sound strange coming from the Mom who once spent two days dressing like her daughter to see if it was possible to do without looking like a complete spaz. But that's just it: most of time you can't pull this look off!

And yet moms do. All. the. time.

Not sure if I'm talking about you? Behold the signs that you are one of the moms who dresses too much like her kids. And please, get help!

Which one of these describes you? How about your friends?

    Unless you're a train conductor, why don't we leave this one to the Osh Kosh B'Gosh set, m'kay?

    I don't care how cold it gets in your house, that is what they invented socks for!

    Sweatpants to the bus stop? OK. But anything more stopped being cute when you were 7.


  • Your T-Shirts Are Broadcasting Cartoons

    When it begins to appear that the Disney Store threw up in your closet, you have gone too far. One or two shirts with cartoon characters on them is understandable. No one needs 20!

  • And Of Course the Cartoon Shirt Has a Stain

    If you don't have a shirt left in your closet that doesn't have some sort of stain on it, it's time to ask yourself: do I really eat like a third grader? Do I really not know how to find the laundry spray?
