Clothes

We attempt to get ready for the following morning by having their clothes that they would like to wear already laid out. Alyssa has this down to perfection and I never have to worry with her. Even at weekends, she appears from her room as if she is on a catwalk with some kind of random creation yet it always seems to work. She is going to be one of these women when she grows up that would certainly look good in a bin bag. Or an actual bin.


Red hat, purple spotty top, jeans and stripey wellies. Perfect! (Timmy rocks the brown fluffy look all the time. Awwwwww.)






"Ooh bendy socks! " 

No Harvey, they are tights.

Harvey would gladly go out wearing 3 socks, 4 pairs of pants, swimming shorts and a princess dressing up outfit if I let him. Or he'd just go in his pyjamas. He's very much of a go-with-the-flow kind of lad. It's often a struggle getting him to put his school shoes on as wellies are so much more fun apparently.

If you've ever seen 'Notting Hill' where Spike appears in the kitchen wearing a diving outfit, that will be Harvey in 20 years. Guarantee it.

  1. We try to have everything ready the night before too however my twins always seem to wear something odd and not what we planned at all. I think my favourite selection of theirs were their swimming costumes in the middle of January. Kids are bonkers!

  16. I get things ready the night before if we have to get up early, but I like to let them choose some mornings which can lead to some bizarre outfits

  17. My now 11y/o has very her own pretty individual style but she always looks amazing - thing that if I tried to mix together would just look ridiculous!
