Going Back to the Motherland
When all your baby cousins have more designer clothes than you
I went back to China this winter break to see all my family after not seeing them for about a year and a half. A lot can change during that time. The air is even foggier, my dad got fatter, and there's now a KFC or Starbucks on every block. My baby cousins either got cuter or more annoying but they all seemed to have developed quite an expensive taste. Decked out in Moncler, Cashmere sweaters and Burberry, I looked like a peasant standing next to them. Last time I remembered little kids were supposed to wear tacky clothing from Justice or Gap Kids. These kids arn't even going to have embarrassing outfit photos to show their kids when they're older.
