    Default Do you ever accidentally...

    Dress in an outfit that matches your kid/kids'?

    I did it today - both in red tops and shoes and blue jeans I only noticed as we were walking out the door and it was too late to change. We kept getting comments - I felt so corny!!

    Tell me I'm not the only one!!

    Not with my kids but it did once happen with DH - it was a total accident and neither of us noticed until we had someone comment on how 'cute' it was that we had matching clothes - i was mortified
    Now when we get dressed i double check we are not not matching

    No, but DD has taken to wearing a purple ribbon in her hair to pretend she has the same colour hair as me.

    Very cute.

    It's happened a few times. DH will dress one of the kids, I'll dress another, then we'll get dressed and unknowingly look like the other kid. Jeans and stripes happen a lot. DH gets funny about it and says we should all get changed as we look like "that insane family that you can't figure out if its a cult or they are just punking the world."

    often! dd selects her own clothes these days, and a few times a week we will both have for example purple tops and black pants.
    she rocks her fluro pink gumboots though, while I prefer sneakers
