to dress the boys

10 Nov

I’m getting bigger and bigger everyday.

And, while I should be thinking about the boys’ health and how we’re going to handle two at one time (oh believe me, I’ve been thinking), I can’t help but think about how I’m going to dress them.

You see, my mom gave me pretty much free reign over my wardrobe from a very young age. I do remember choosing my clothes in kindergarten. It was an easy way for me to have some independence that didn’t really matter that much. I appreciate that and I’d like to pass on the same decision making skills to my kids. I think it’s a good way to learn how to make decisions from a young age…and really, except for stupid pictures that people have scanned and put on facebook, who cares what you looked like in kindergarten.

BUT…all that does NOT mean that I’m not going to have fun dressing them when I get the chance :). I am super excited about this. There are all sorts of cool, fun outfits for boys (some from google, most in my head). I don’t think we’re going to be dressing them too much the EXACT same. We’re pretty sure they’re identical, and we want them to have their own identities and personalities. One way to make sure that happens is for mom and dad and others to make sure we call them by the correct name. That becomes much harder when they look and are dressed identically. But…I have no problem with COORDINATING outfits. In fact, I’m super excited about that.

I especially love these from Miranda at one little minute.
