Do you like twinning? Until fairly recently I’d always thought that twinning was something that towns did with another town in France or Germany. When I was a child the only people who dressed their kids the same were people who actually had twins.
It has to be said my husband hates the idea of me dressing the boys the same. There are five years between them and he just finds the whole concept a bit strange. I on the other hand think it’s quite cute.
I’d never go so far to make them dress like their dad or like me! But sometimes getting them to look like each is other is appealing.
I have two reasons for liking it:
- Sometimes for safety. If we are out and about having them in matching coats makes it easier to spot them in a crowd.
- They are only little for a very short amount of time. The eldest is nine now, so I know I’ve got to enjoy it, while I can!
Twinning at Christmas
Christmas is a great time to twin the kids and I have perfected doing it subtly so it doesn’t annoy hubby. Cute matching sets of socks or Christmas p.j’s. Coordinating Christmas jumpers and matching chinos are the looks I go for.
Not completely matchy – matchy as that might look a little weird. Plus, that is really hard to do as now the eldest is nine he’s fallen into the next age range of clothes.
We have had a tradition for doing a Christmas card with a photo of the kids on since the eldest was born. On the first one we did, we had the tiniest little Santa in a premi outfit on the card.
So this year I’ll be doing my suitable twinning and dressing the boys in these super cute waistcoats from Dobell for our Christmas cards. Not exactly the same as one has reindeer on and the other gingerbread man. I think they’ll look lovely and they’ll definitely be back on for Christmas day.
What do you think? Do you twin your kids or even twin with them? Let me know in the comments.
