going on from the 'matching' thread, I fear I may have permanently (sp?) damaged my children for life.
I dressed them matching when they were small, and I still buy them matching outfits now (not that they wear them at the same time anymore.....tis just that if I buy yhem clothes, they always prefer whatever it is I bought for the others so I still find I have to buy the same).
am I odd and should I be flamed???
<<hangs head in readiness of the rotton tomatoes flinging my way>>
Yikes, mine are probably damaged too - I buy them matching outfits too, not to dress them the same at the same time, but if I find something I like I may as well get 2! And as psycho said, the older one invariably wants what the younger one has (little one doesn't much care yet), so it makes life easier. They almost never wear them at the same time though, although I confess to having dressed them in similar outfits (different colours though) for weddings etc <hanging head in shame with Psycho>
missed the thread you are referring to, but my sister (3 yrs older than me) and i used to be dressed in a lot of the same outfits and we used to wear them at the same time. we turned out ok, although i do have a bit of a complex about the fact that i would always get the blue version and my sister the pink version of an outfit - why couldn't i be the girly one for a change?!!
