I consider myself fairly eccentric and when I became a mum I didn’t see that I would change this in anyway.
However, on a few occasions now I have had comments not to far from ‘you don’t look like a mum’. Now that could mean I look young, that’s fair enough but it makes me think about what people think mums ‘should’ look like or wear.
Is eccentricity acceptable?
I think a strong sense of individual style is a good example to set for your little ones. I’m happy for my son to start choosing his clothes/outfits (although I may draw a line at flippers to school).
