Why sit back and watch your children live out your dreams?

I know i had this exact outfit when I was a child. I kid you not, right down to the hat. And it wasn’t a costume, it was a school outfit that I had to wear. I know I got a pic of somewhere…
are those TAP shoes???
I’m going to go with mother and daughter both taking dance at the same academy. My eight-year old girl is in dance classes, and when they have a recital every girl involved has at least one outfit this goofy.
From the creator of Toddlers and Tiaras?
Well, no one looks happy to be in this photo.
Kid looks annoyed that mom made her wear that and mom looks annoyed that the kid is annoyed…
That … headdress … on the child is quite … eye-catching? If that is the term I want. Mom sure has a great figure though. You don’t get that sitting around playing your Wii.
you said wii!
It’s Sarah and Piper!
It’s the picture title that does it for me! Read it and laughed out loud! SO GREAT!
need more cowbell tooooooooooo!
Mom and daughter both took seperate dance classes……but met up for the photo shoot!! I actually think this one is sweet and not horribly awkward. All out-dated dance costumes make us cringe but the photo, itself, seems sweet. Momma wanted to dance, too!
This is MY MOTHER & I circa 1987 or 88. ENJOY.
your mom is a hottie.
The girl’s leggings look modern but is that hat even from this planet?
Talk about your stage mothers…
Sadly you know that picture is huge, and hanging above a fireplace… So everybody can feel welcome, and awkward at the same time.
I think this picture is sweet.
Wait? Isn’t this the same girl who’s holding the goat in the picture below?!?
Little Mrs. Sunshine?
I didn’t know Susan Sarandon danced as well as acted.
Dammit – I love you…
It’s just a jump to the left……………………
And then a step to the right
What a guy. Makes you cry. Und I did.
Mom and daughter dance probably. And I’ve seen these costumes recently, so not 80′s throwback
Ah, yes, the mother-daughter jazz performance photo, complete with shiny, sparkly 80s outfits. If I recall correctly, my mother opted out of the paired photo option, leaving the oh so awkward solo picture of me “smiling” in prominent view in family photo albums while her solo shot somehow managed to get buried. Our costumes had a gold theme rather than hot pink, though. Nothing like seeing your mom in gold lame shorts (a la Richard Simmons) with a matching hat with a little net. (As I said, this photo has not seen light in many, many years, and I don’t blame her.)
Isnt this the same girl and Mom from the fringe costume picture?
That was my thought too. The girl sure looks the same!
I’m pretty sure this is the same mother/ daughter in ‘razzmataz’ on june 3rd 2009. I was looking at archives and just thought they looked too similar, the redundancy makes it even more awkward
It is. For sure.
Yes! U are RIGHT! It is the same mother /daughter!!! B/C its ME & MY MOM!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHA
seriously? what happened to your brothers?
It is the same! These people get around!
It’s Little Miss and Adult Mrs. Sunshine.
i think mom is getting pissed that her little star won’t shine bright enough.
“Missy, if you don’t smile like you mean it, I swear, I will wear your little butt out as soon we get out of this K-Mart!!!”
It doesn’t seem awkward to me…maybe because it’s pretty much every dance picture from the 80s. A lot of schools have adult classes and I used to love that my mom participated. I even had that costume, just in green!
Yeah, it’s only moderately awkward to me…I take adult dance classes at my kids’ studio. When my adult classes have performed, my husband’s always taken a photo or two of me with our kids in costume (we don’t perform together, though-back to individual classes for that), and they actually tell me they think it’s cool I worked up the courage to do it (major stage fright right here ).
I don’t have kids, but I take an Adult Hip Hop class…and we do recitals too! It’s really alot of of fun to dance as an adult. My class has a blast!
Well, there you go. The entire decade of the ’80s was awkward.
Incredibly so, yes.
If by awkward, you mean
Thanks, Andy Bernard!
I could NOT AGREE MORE!!!!!
Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion.
Great DD reference.
That is such an obscure qoute!!! Why was the second movie so bad?
This picture could use more jazz-hands.
Curse you Craig!
*shakes tiny fist*
What, no Jazz Hands?!
my thoughts exactly! I feel cheated!
The Jazz hands are ‘implied’
that is awkward
That was the very first thing that I said, and planned on commenting……I think “awkward” is truly the only way to describe this…..
