I guess I am THAT mom



The kind of mom who thinks it's fun to dress her kids the same. Sigh. I know it's probably tacky, but I just couldn't help myself. It's just for a little while, before Fly starts getting all independent-like and demanding to wear only certain outfits. (Right now, he doesn't care what I put on him.) I mean, it's just a couple of shirt, right? And they have to wear clothes anyway. It's not like I dress the boys the same every day.

Yes, I sound exactly like a person in denial.

Someone please tell me this is completely within my realm.

Or direct me to good group therapy.

*ahem* I'll join you in therapy. I have 2 girls and 2 boys and I dress the girls and boys alike on occasion. They like it. Not every day, but sometimes it's fun. When they tell me to knock it off, I will. Maybe. LOL

I LOVE that they are dressed alike. LOVE IT.

I think those who DON'T find that cute are the ones who need therapy.

Totally allowed to dress them alike, I love it. I, also, can't wait until I have two of the same... three months to go ;)

Awww. It might become obnoxious if you dress them alike at ages 12 and 14, but wee little boys? So cute!

As long as you stop there and do have outfits for you and hubby to match. I have seen that ... the whole outfit, pants, shoes and shirt all the same colour and style to go out on a family outing ... tsk tsk.

I used to do that all the time with Evan and Harry. I don't have any immediate plans for that with my now three boys because quite frankly I am too lazy and it is hard to find matching toddler clothing and baby clothing.

My boys have picked out matching shirts to wear (2 and 5) and even wore them to Disney's Animal Kingdom. I think it is cute and who cares what anyone thinks. Love the photo of your adorable boys :)

Don't be silly, that's what mom's are supposed to do!

I love it! They are only young enough to let us do this once, so enjoy it while you can.

I have gotten Miss M and K Man matching pajamas and a few matching sweatshirts. They liked matching. I haven't done it in a year or two though. (You've got time!) ;)

I dressed my girls alike when they were little. They survived. No psychological scars either :-)

It is definitely okay to be THAT mom! They are so sweet. :-)

Totally within your rights! And when they're just a bit older, you can still get away with coordinating colors. Eventually, you'll be out of luck, so enjoy it while you can!

I like making them matchy matchy, but it isn't as easy when you have a girl & a boy. So far, it only happens with Christmas pjs.

First of all, I love those shirts! Where did you get them? Do tell! I'm not big into shirts with "text" on them, but that is a fabulous message!

Second, matching clothes are cute when your kids are little like that.

Third, your new little one is sweet.

Fourth, how is big brother doing? I recognize that expression on his face a little. It reminds me of the way my 2-year-old looked sometimes right after her baby sister was born.

Congrats again! I'm so happy for you.

I dress my girls alike now and then, too. They love it!

I can remember my mom making the two of us matching outfits to wear to a mother/daughter banquet when I was about 6 and I thought it was the coolest thing ever!

Don't worry. You're not off the deep end, yet.

they're adorable.

if you're still doing it in 7 or 8 years, then it's just sad.

or if you get a matching shirt. :)

I love it! But watch out for the Grammas - or they'll buy the boys matching outfits every chance they get!

They are adorable! I like matching on wee kids.

My son is 9 and he could care less what he wears, or how long he wears it (yuck).

I did that too! So good to see the pics of the new baboo too. Congrats!
