I’m the worst Dad…evah!
I read the site “Weasel Zippers” many times a day. Well, often when they run a story on abortion they run this graphic along with it.
I’ve honestly seen this pic 50 times or more. But last night I was looking at it and thinking that little girl doesn’t match at all. Not even a little. And then it hit me – THAT’S MY KID!!! Yup. That little girl in two shades of pink and the boots is my three year old daughter. And the girl standing behind her is my eleven year old. You can see my brown shoe too but I totally matched.
So, as you can see, I’m a terrible Dad who takes his daughter out in unmatching clothes and then doesn’t recognize his own daughter when he looks at her 50 times. But on the plus side, they wear unmatching clothes at pro-life rallies so I’ve gotta’ get a little credit, right?

I think it's great that you knew she didn't match. My husband would've thought pink and pink goes, right? 🙂

As far as I'm concerned, pink and pink DO go. It's not like she's wearing brown and black.

2 shades of the same color can look good, but it's always the unkempt hair that makes the "day out with Dad" obvious.

LOL at Katharine's comment. SO true!
On days that I get my daughters ready for school, when I drop them off their teachers always have this "Mmmmhmmm. Dad did your hair today." look on their faces.

She looks like she matches to me.

She doesn't match. She GOES. And if it were my kid, i don't think i would have recognized her either. When my oldest first started paying t-ball, i was taking pictures of his first at bat with that gigantic helmet on. It wasn't till he started running and I saw his number that I realized i had taken a hundred pictures of someone else's kid. All kids pretty much look the same when you can't see their faces.

If she wanted to wear her batman regalia it would be ok by me. Great photo!

I might not wear those two shades of pink together, but I think it's fine for a little kid! Don't sweat it 🙂

Like Amy said her outfit goes together. Heck, I would TOTALLY rock those two shades of pink together.

If I remember correctly the Batman mask was in the van waiting for her. I asked her to take it off when we got out of the van.

Haha, love the post. I think she matches too!

I think pink and pink look fantastic together!

Jackets are supposed to match?!? Or is it the…leg-thingies?
