Mommy and Me Outfits: Blue Hues Outfit ideas

For today’s Mommy and Me Outfits series, we are both in blue and share with you some blue hues outfit ideas.

One of Vivian’s very favorite things to do, in life, is dance when she hears good music! The song that can instantly turn her into a good mood is Kelly Clarkson’s “Heartbeat” song and I’m not sure quite why, but I suppose it is catchy. Apparently at school, whenever music is on, she looks to bust a move, and even at home, it can really light her up. I should probably take this opportunity to tell you that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Growing up, I was in ballet, gymnastics, figure skating, but most proudly Chinese folk dancing. I danced from probably age 4 through 15 and then taught dance to little kids when I was in high school EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT. Yup, in Ann Arbor, MI where I grew up, we had Chinese School every Friday night, it was always 2 hours of school and then 1 hour of extracurricular activities. All my other friends were probably out playing or enjoying family nights, but I was back in school. Luckily, I had a great group of friends at the school to make it better though.

It is my goal to be able to pass on Chinese traditions and language to my kids, in Utah, I know there are dual immersion programs and that’s something I plan to look into. And I hope that Vivian will enjoy dancing as she grows up too! I am a second generation Asian American (my parents were both born in Taiwan/China), and my kids will be third generation. It will be harder and harder as the generations go on to ensure that language and culture is not lost, but I’ll just have to try my best. Are any of you facing the same challenges with your kids? What things are you doing to ensure that your culture can continue to be cultivated in daily life?

    Your Vivian is like my Vivian. They both love to dance. She is so sweet and I adore her outfit. Also, what a stunning floral maxi. I love the long sleeves. =)

    Ahhh how cute is little Vivian in her little jumpsuit?! I love that she loves to dance too, that is precious. Jona really loves music too but he’s like his dad in that when I ask him to dance he says no πŸ™‚ That dress of yours is so pretty too–I really need more maxi dresses!!

    Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!!! She is the cutest little thing and you look gorgeous. You guys are so cute together and I’m beyond obsessed! Plus I totally agree with you babe. I’m second generation Asian (my mom is from Vietnam!) and although I don’t have any kids at the moment, I’ve always thought about the struggle of carrying on traditions so it’ll definitely be a journey. But, I’m visiting Vietnam in the next few months so I think travel is a big part in keeping tradition and culture alive!

    I hear you, Sandy!! My daughter is 17 and she speaks English as well as Spanish. And that’s it. Teochew (my dialect and, I suppose you could say, my native language-ish) is completely foreign to her. Growing up in Borneo, my brother and I were raised on a linguistic diet of almost 100% English. In fact, I’m surprised we’re still able to speak our dialect to begin with GRIN the same thing with my husband and my stepsons (22 and 18). My husband is first generation Italian but only the oldest boy can understand the language, and speaks it somewhat hesitantly. The younger is essentially all American. I suppose we could’ve tried harder, for all 3, when they were much younger and I regret we didn’t but it is what it is now. You’re very wise to plan ahead where Vivian is concerned though, Sandy, I wish we had πŸ™‚

    And if you haven’t yet, I do hope you’ll come by and join in the Project Sister Act Link-Up πŸ™‚
