  • Nope, they usually dress themselves.

  • Nope. My kids are individuals with individual tastes and styles. I would hate to stifle their abilities to express themselves. The closest to matchymatchy was the sweaters Grama made. Same pattern, different colors.

  • I only go matchy-matchy for family pics or functions like a wedding (which was the bride's request both times, as they had parts in the wedding). For day-to-day, no, I don't ever make them match.

  • Am I the only one? My boys are 20m and nearly 4. They only have a few actual matching shirts/outifts, the ones I couldn't resist. Otherwise I do coordinate them when we're out of the house, both in blues or browns, both polos or tshirts, that sort of thing. I can't stand my husbands plain tshirts and jean shorts (he refuses anything else and I haven't been able to change him after 10 years), so I make up for it on the poor kids. While I can, that is, I don't expect it to last. They'll get a say in it, once they care.

  • I have twins a boy and a girl and I tried not to dress them a like. That way they can be their own person, but one year for first day of school I dress my older son and my younger son a like.

  • My 4 yr old loves to dress the same as his 1 yr old brother. Not always the exact same outfit but in similar colors. And they always want to wear matching pajamas.
