Our twins are 2.4 y/o fraternal boys. They are quite opposite in every way including the way they look.Including they both got different versions of their daddy's cute pug nose
Rarely, will I find matching outfits,especially since I almost exclusively shop at garage sales and thrift store.So that settles that dilemma for me,lol.Other than my children's great-granny buying them identical outfits on their birthday's,the only identical outfits I have received were the five outfits I received soon after they were born.These five outfits were actually selected by 11 y/o fraternal twin girls I knew from our local homeschooling group.These girls looked identical but their personalities were such complete opposites ( one was the full-on girlie-girl whereas her sis wouldn't wear a dress if her life depended on it).Which made it that much more interesting to me that they chose the gifts.Their mom told me they insisted on my boys having matching outfits.The girls told me"better put them in matching outfits before they get big enough to protest like us". The VERY few gifts that we have recieved have been either completely different or coordinating. I love coordinating/matching outfits and get potraits done of them whenever we receive them.If I could afford it, I would buy some matching outfits.Partly b/c lately they have been fussing over which of them gets to wear what.Our families lifestyle is similar to what I've heard here before...I'm too exhausted to care what they where as long as it's clean and over the summer they tend to be matching b/c they're usually wearing only diapers.
* For new twin families I highly reccomend buying identical shoes for two reasons: 1)you double your chances of finding a pair when only one child is going to where shoes.
2) when both children are wearing shoes they won't fuss over which child gets to wear which shoes.
