Fashion Police!!

Remember when I used to dress the twins SO cute? Adorable matching outfits? Coordinating colors. Just precious! For the past year, Nonnie and I snagged sale items - little cargo shorts, Bermuda's, etc. all in anticipation of another great Successful Fashion Summer!


But, none of it, none of it is getting worn.

Because Frick and Frack have started dressing themselves.

All. the. time.

And despite the many, many clothing options available to them, they basically rotate out the same three or four basketball shorts and number shirts.


This is Logan's all time standard "go to" outfit. He'll either wear his Red number shirt or he'll wear Austin's (creating quite the chaos when he throws people off)!



I thought Austin was pretty cute this day (butt picking aside)- sleeveless tank, khaki dress pants and work boots (minus socks). He sorta had a look going on!


And some days, the superheroes come out!

And yes, we leave the house like this.

It's just too much to fight. And besides, the costumes get a lot of attention. Cute, right?

But then, there are times. Where the cuteness factor may not be so ah, evident...and well, it's hard for me to swallow that folks might think that I. did. this.
...or this....


And while Logan's pairing of black soccer socks with white tennis shoes isn't exactly overly offensive...

And while we can all appreciate a good tucked in shirt...

I'm thinking the bedroom slippers, "....just like in Polar Express, Mom" may be a tough sell!

Ok, I have to admit, I have always admired your boys clothing as I tend to do the same thing. However, I did notice your (or their now that I know the truth) lapse in judgement on the post a few times ago with the Guatelama soccer jerseys and the socks and shoes. This is sooooo funny!

Love the slippers too!

I just laughed SO HARD! Out loud! Hahhahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

All the laughter aside, I feel like a horrible mother now because I make CR wear the clothes I pick for him on the weekends when we are out and about and he is not in school. He would wear those ugly damned crocs every second of every day if I didn't put my foot down!
