The if you had twins would you dress them alike? question
I think it's fair to guess that mostly women talk about this.
1)You always have your people who are so so passionate about why it just...disgusts them just...eww...just drives them crazy.
2)Then you have your I don't know-ers, or I just don't care enough to think about it-ers ---> this was my category.
3)Then you have your absolutely's, your it's like my obsession, or your definite just yes-ers with no explanation-ers.
I totally forgot about this until a few days ago! And I just want to put it out there that it's okay if you're in the first category, I get it. But now that I have been a mother to triplets for a little over a year now, here's why I choose to.
It's for the same reason I try really hard to not wear pajama pants to the grocery store. (leggings/yoga pants don't count as pajama pants fyi) I won't look put together, I will look messy.
To me it feels like they aren't matching when they aren't dressed identical. When they are dressed the same they match! It makes me feel like I have it together. Since there are 3 of them, and they all have brown hair when they are not matching it looks messy to me. I realize most people won't even notice this. But it just looks a little more nice and neat to me. And the weirdest part is if you know me well you know I'm more of a non-matcher with everything else.
But when we are home, alone, where no one can see us... we don't match and I personally wear the foulest looking ensembles, the more comfortable the better.
Also, say you bring them to a BBQ where there are gonna be lots of people and amongst those people are salt of the earth saints who love to play with babies, or at least pretend to so a couple of exhausted parents can zone out or interact with the humans outside our house or work for minutes at a time. Only to come up for air and do a quick headcount every now and then. When they are matching that headcount goes so much faster. There's much less work for your brain to remember who was wearing what and look for that color, all while trying to stay tuned into the conversation.
P.S. I will neither confirm nor deny if I have ever worn pajama pants to the grocery store. But if I have, the reason I would've stopped is because I would've ran into WAY too many people I know whilst wearing them. I hear it's a hard habit to break if you're a gambler.
If you see us out and about and they are not matching it's cause we are very tired, and we don't care if we look messy. Kinda like when one would maybe wear pajama pants to the grocery store.

|Finn loves his first sport! He wears his hat even when he has his pajamas on. He is such a good kid and I have to say is turning out to be quite funny. I love hearing his view on things. He sure can talk though wow!|
