  • Leave him in what they dress him in. Why is it your job to re-dress him? Unless they specifically ask, I wouldn't.

  • I think you are way to worried about what other people will think. Why would you care what they think? Do you really judge people on what their toddler is wearing? As long as its clean I figure its good enough.

  • Maybe one of the parents is color blind? Or maybe they are just sooooo stressed out in the morning, they just grab anything? Believe me, I've seen my dd walk her 3 year old out the door to go to his preschool, still in his jammies because he refuses to cooperate and get dressed! So she throws clothes in his bag and tells the teacher. They are more than willing to re-dress him!

    I don't see the problem in any case. I think you're more concerned about what people are thinking of you than anything else. If you're THAT insecure, just casually mention that you babysit the child and sometimes the parents dress him silly. Big deal, really!
