I am swamped, but here

I seriously thought I could do the whole add yet another blog to my list, but I am finding it extremely difficult to keep up with two review blogs. Plus, add in the fact that I have been sick the past two weeks and today is the first day I even feel remotely alive, and you get slackerness major! I don't want to see this blog die, I just want to be able to keep up without everything suffering because I am over doing it! So if the posts are sporadic and here and there, know I am working on getting you great products for giveaways, and trying to keep my sanity! LOL

To dress alike or not to dress alike?

That is the question of the day. I am wondering how many twin parents dress their twins alike. Matchy-matchy or same clothes different colors kind of thing. Or are you more of the "No way in h*ll will I dress my kids alike"? See I fall in the middle. While I LOVE seeing the boys in adorable matching outfits, I also know that if I dress them differently I will get two things-1) They are identical so it is soooo much easier to know who I am talking to if they are wearing different clothing, and 2) They are gettig a chance to express their own personalities.

I swore when I was pregnant with Connor and Colton, that I would NEVER dress them alike. Then my SIL bought the boys matching outfits for their hospital pics. I was hooked. Didn't even fight the hook at all, just got reeled right on in. (Can you tell I have been playing Fishing Master on Wii?) I switched to the "Until they can tell me whether they want to wear it or not, they will dress like I say!" I stuck by that too. The moment one said "Not wanna" to a shirt or pair of pants, we went to letting them have options.

I did an experiment with them when they were around 15-16 months old. I let them pick their own clothes out. I would bring in two outfits. I let them choose which they wanted to wear. Everyday that week they wanted to wear the same outfit! I repeated this experiment last week (in anticipation of this post), and they picked differently each time.

I feel confident knowing that my boys are ever growing and developing, and that I am a mom am doing something right. At least for now. LOL So now I also feel confident that no matter whether the boys dress matchy-matchy or completely different-they will always be alike and different at the same time. Okay that has nothing to do with dressing alike,a nd it is a post for another day!

What camp do you fall into? I want to know people! What are your thoughts on matching or not?

Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month

Today starts National Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. And while I believe focus should be on it everyday day of every month of the year, it is wonderful that there is a month out there for recognizing pediatric cancer. I'll be hanging my yellow ribbon this weekend around the tree in my front yard. And we will be having a cause party to raise money at the end of September, combined with a Cookie For Kids Cancer bakesale! I can't wait!

How will you support pediatric cancer? Host a bakesale yourself? Auction off an item on your blog? Have a yard sale and donate the proceeds? Or even just writing a post on your blog to let everyone know? Please do what you can!
