Do you know what I don’t like to see

when parents dress their toddlers like a “miniature me”

little boys in bow ties and suits

or rough denim jeans and big cowboy boots

there’s plenty of time for him to dress like a man

so for now dress him like a little boy while you still can

little girls dressed in chic designer wear

straight from the hairdresser with newly coiffed hair

I’ve even seen painted fingers and toes

what was mama thinking, goodness only knows

Let them dress like children, those years go by so fast

before you even know it, their childhood will have passed.
