In a stroke of genius, my inlaws Lucy & Simon bought matching jumpers for the four children. It took quite some effort to pose a baby, two toddlers and an 8-year-old together, and parents had to be in there too to settle them down, but here, see the cuteness that is my children and their cousins:

Four cousins and their mothers


We kept the jumpers on our two for the journey home. It's my experience that dressing them alike gets an "aww cute" reaction which gives us rather more slack for them being children in public. Anyway, the two of them in matching jumpers holding hands through the non-accessible bits of the underground was a sight to behold. If I hadn't been carrying a buggy up and down flights of stairs, I would have photographed it for you.

(In fact any way of playing up the "aww cute" is helpful, which I first realised during Eastercon when C was a toddler. We got a lot more approval and a lot less annoyed huffing when he was running around dressed up as dragon or spider than we did when he was "just" a toddler running around.)

Actually the other thing that strikes me more than usual, partly I think because of the angle of both your heads, is the similarity with you.

Yup - sounds plausible. A bit similar to me not seeing the similarities between me and my nieces that have caused several of their friends to instantly peg me as 'Xs aunt' without any introduction.

Aww. My Mum never dressed us the same, I think because we were twins.

Aw, too much cute in a single pic!

Ah. This might turn out to be a useful piece of information.
