After reading Hurrah for Gin’s Ordinary Moment last week, I couldn’t help but chuckle. Katie wrote about her little boy’s obsession with wearing red from head to toe. It’s very similar in our house; T1 wears red and T2 likes to wear blue. That includes pants, socks, t-shirt, jumper and jeans – in fact if one item of the right colour is missing we have a major meltdown.
When I take them out dressed in their favourite colours I get some funny looks (it’s even funnier when they’re on their red and blue bikes too!) I swear people think I’m a cruel mummy for dressing my twins in clashing colours.
I try my best to get their clothes out for them on days when we have to leave the house, so I can avoid the strange looks. But on this particular day I wasn’t up quick enough to sort the clothes out and T2 rummaged through his drawers until he created this wonderful combination.
My boys have true style. Or not. I can’t quite decide.
