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?
