clothes has always been a been a way of showing the bond between a mother and
her child, and bringing them closer together. Sometimes, this is done very much

joy! Finding an outfit that is exactly the same for mum and daughter brings a
smile to your face, and is a simply way of having some fun with fashion.
mums and daughters, matching can be a sign of solidarity and strength, rather
than something for public attention.

‘Without change, there would be no butterflies’. Change can be hard to accept –

he was summoning a hug from her.

her Mantra Necklace through the day, knowing that Mummy has the same necklace
on. You’ll be holding yours through the day and thinking of her; while she does
the same. What a lovely way of sharing a moment, even when you are apart.
