I used to be one of those moms who always, ALWAYS dressed her twins alike. I know it’s frowned upon. I know I should be pushing them to be their own unique selves. But they’re just so darned CUTE in their matchy-match clothes! I even had matching pajamas for them, just in case I decided to take pictures at the breakfast table, I guess.
Something changed within me, though. I started to let my kids pick out their own clothes. It happened a few months ago, and I’m not even sure what led to it – probably just the kids getting older, I guess. They just hit the dresser and put together outfits that THEY like – and I’m totally okay with it! We even go out in public dressed in crazy, weather-inappropriate attire, and it doesn’t bug me at all. They’re loving it, and I love not obsessing over their clothes anymore.
What are your feelings on dressing kids alike? How often do your twins wear matching outfits?
Note: I wrote this post way back on August 15th, but stupidly hit “save” instead of “publish” – and now I see that another of our talented authors has written a post about dressing twins alike. I swear, I’m not copying, teacher! I couldn’t see “wasting” my post, though, so here it is.
