Playing Dress-Up, Twin-Style

We don't have a lot of dress-up stuff. We have a bag of necklaces and bracelets that Isabella will occasionally use, but although I've meant to get some, we don't have actual clothing for the kids to try on. We are a princess-free household (full disclosure on this coming soon), so we don't have the requisite pink and purple gowns, high-heels, and purses many homes with toddler and preschooler girls have.

However, what we do have are aprons. Lots and lots of aprons. These have come from baking sets Isabella has received as gifts, and some I've purchased for her to wear when doing messy craft projects.

On Saturday morning, the twins channeled their inner Jamie Olivers:

Nicholas especially loves playing dress-up. We've been hitting the library a lot this summer, and the children's room has a huge supply of costumes. This is the exact costume, down to the bandanna and the kerchief, that he picks out each and every time we're there. I have not the slightest idea what this costume is. One of my friends suggested Nicholas looks like a Communist from the Old Country. I think he looks Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof.

You do not want to be the one taking this costume off of Nicholas. At any point. When it's time to take off the costume and go home, we leave a scene of mass destruction and shattered eardrums in our wake.

Luci loves the library's dress-up stash too. Here, she samples what life is like on the right side of the law. Unfortunately, I suspect this is a side she will not see often in the future.

Would you ever try a pole-dancing class? Would you enroll your five-year-old daughter in one? Classes with names like "Sexy Flexy" and "Promiscuous Girls" are available for young children and tweens in a pole-dancing studio in Ottawa. Check out my latest blog post on my health and wellness blog. Let me know what you think!

    You need to get some dress up stuff! Gymboree right before or after Halloween is a good source, as are re-sale shops.

    I'm not sure what they are, but they look adorable. However, you really need to get Nicholas a more masculine apron. :)

    The pole dancing thing? Too disgusting for words. Truly. Anyone who signs their child up for that should have to take a very long, very intensive, parenting class.

    "communist from the old country" omihat I've been snorting for several minutes after reading that. The cuteness factor is HUGE!
