Cute Or Totally Tacky?
This weekend was my cousin's wedding. My son and I flew over to Seattle for the wedding Saturday night and then back home to Boise last night.
We did some clothes shopping last week since I needed some clothes that would fit my new smaller body (thanks Idaho Fat Loss) and my son's larger one (he's been on a growth spurt). While we were shopping, he decided that he wanted a shirt and tie like mine. I actually suggested a few other options, but he really wanted to do it, so I thought it was all good.
We got matching slacks, shirts, and nearly identical ties (as close as I could). He loved it. I thought it was pretty cool too, but it was met with either "that's so cute" or "wow, that's kind of strange." Did I mess up? Was this obnoxious to do? One friend told me "it's a bit of a ego play to make your kid look like you."
So I would like to know what you think? Did I make a bad move? Is it acceptable? We both enjoyed it.
