When I found out I was expecting twins, I almost passed out on the ultrasound table. After I recovered, I decided I would not dress them the same so I could foster the idea of separate identities. When I found out they were boy-girl twins, I figured this was a moot point anyway.
Since their arrival I've changed my tune. I've decided that matching outfits, including ones that are the same style but different colors, are cute on twins, even on those who don't look even minimally related.
My grandma thinks so too. She enjoys buying the twins identical outfits.
Gender-specific, identical outfits.
Now, to clarify my views on dressing little boys in "girl" colors and vice-versa: I generally don't care. Isabella wore tons of blue when she was in her infant "is that a boy or a girl?" stage. And personally, I love pink polo shirts on little boys.
But then grandma brought over her latest purchase, and promptly dressed Nicholas in his.
Yeah, I'm wearing lavender. What of it?
(It says "pretty kitty." Meow!)
It seems I may have my very own Aunt Clara situation on my hands.
The ladies love me in lavendar. I wear it for them.
