    I don't think it's cruel. My Mum dressed us three girls the same when we were little - mainly because she had a bolt of fabric shipped to the small coral atoll we lived on in the Solomon Islands and made several outfits from the roll. I reeeeaaaaly didn't like being the same as my sisters from the age of around 3. But if you like it and they like it go for it.

    Meh, I've done it. Back when the girls were little they had a couple things the same. Often if one wore something the other would ASK to wear it too. Just because they liked that item.

    Even now they both have a dress the same. They're 10 & almost 7. If they choose to wear them on the same day, I wouldn't care! They are at an age now where its THEIR choice. They were both with me when I bought the dresses & were both happy, even though DD1 hates DD2 copying her.

    I also used to buy the same outfit, but in different colours. & I still do that on occasion. Again, sometimes they just choose to wear the same thing. And even as young as 2, they can make that choice!

    I don't like kids dressed the same either TBH but seriously, this is an issue why???? Silly woman.

    My girls like very different things, and with their different colouring suit different colours, but every now and then they will both choose the same thing. If that's what makes them happy then I just accept it.

    Just wondering though. Does that make us very, very cruel when not only do we dress our children the same as each other, but also the same as every other child in their school class???

    My sister and I used to love wearing the same clothes. Whenever possible my BROTHER would get in on the fun. I'd love for that woman to have seen our family....

    Lol my boys (7yo & almost 2yo) love it when they match. Also I knew some twins who when then were growing up deliberately wore the same clothes, just to play tricks on people! Lol

    My girls pretty much pick their own clothes everyday, I just add or take off what I see appropriate for weather/place sort of thing. If DD2 sees what DD1 has picked she will generally want the same or something very close. It really has never crossed my mind at all that someone would ever think that if my girls were dressed the same or similar that it is cruel. Maybe she had to and only has bad memories. I also wonder if she would be inclined to think that 90% of what DD2 wears DD1 use to wear?

    Oh well, like I said, wont stop me or my girls as long as we are all happy, I don't give two hoots what she or anyone thinks.

    That is just the height of cruelty. Nothing could possibly be more cruel than that

    You bad, cruel mum ;P just kidding. Lucky you clothe them, perhaps if they weren't she'd justify the cruel comment. Weirdo!!

    In what way is it cruel exactly??

    My sister and I used to like dressing the same when we were little and we would love it when people mistook us for twins (even though I was 2 years older and a whole head taller, but it happened quite often anyway...)

    How rude of her! What business is it of hers anyway??? I can't believe someone would say something like that to a mother.
