mother-daughter sweater hell

Well, all the 'IN' crowd go to therapists and you want your kid to have SOMETHING to say.
I'm really not a cat person. And that green would only look good on a tree frog. And the kid is extremely adoreable but the hood would be much better left to hang...
And I'm really bemused by the entire concept of a mother/daughter set, particularly when its this cutesy. I mean, i can sort of understand putting your child in a mock chanel jacket or such-like, but I do not know a single sane woman who would wear something reminiscent of an 8-yr-olds pajamas. And this is even out of date for the kid - all the 8 yr olds are dressing like pop-starlets these days.
And just to make a point, I include a full complement of hideousity (that is SO a word) in case you think i'm taking this out of context. Ok, i kind of understand why in some places this might be acceptable at Halloween... but isnt this woman just the Maude Flanders goody-two-shoes-breakfast-is-the-most-important-meal-of-the-day-i-always-bake-from-scratch type living down the street that has you itching to smack her within seconds of initiating conversation? or do I just have PMS...See here we have Maude again with her truly adoreable child. and i think these are almost excuseable as these two sets are clearly Halloween related (and while I do not condone people-who-dress-for-the-holiday, Halloween is acceptable). And while i realise they are just models who have been cast together because they look alike, this woman DOES look like a good mother. Like she's not above making herself look a little silly for her kid.
Blondie here on the other hand.. the kid is like "Mum, if you're going to flirt with the maintenance guy can you at least let me hide first." that boday language screams ESCAPE!
This is SO wrong. SO SO SO wrong. Again, fine on the kid, but the mother should review her meds if she thinks this is ok.
And this is all "Hey Santa, I'll ditch the kid and then lets look in your sack of goodies..."
Seriously, if you're going to pose for hideous holiday themed family related sets of really truly ugly clothes an 'I'm so hot, come and get it big-boy' pose is a leetle disturbing.. and ludicrous.

Happy Halloween and if you want to spend more of your time on this horror...

Very very very scary! Are they knitted, or sewn garments? Any mum who thinks this sort of thing is a good idea needs therapy!!

Call Social Welfare and the fashion police immediately - this is child abuse and a taste infringement!
