“The Shining,” Presents and the Leopards. Rules for Dressing Twins.

“There are two to kiss, and two to hug and two to love with all my heart.” ~ Unknown

People always ask me if the minis have a special twin connection and the answer is yes.  Today though, we will keep it light and lovely and I will focus on just one thing that’s fun to do with twins….dress them alike! That said, there are some rules to follow:


1. Do NOT dress your twins like the twins from the movie The Shining – “Redrum Redrum” –  creepy.


2. Do NOT dress your twins as presents, they may never forgive you.



3. Do NOT dress your twins as Leopards or they might be confused with the Ikki twins and captured for further studies or protection.

4.  You can, and although  I rarely do this, but some days, like when Daddy brings the outfits to my bed just before he leaves at 6:45 am, dress them the same as I did today.  Choosing something adorable like their Restoration Hardware onesies that we literally bought when they were the size of a peanut!   And, now that they finally fit,  I am pretty sure it’s one of the cutest things ever.  A ‘newfavoriteday’ indeed.

Getting this photo was like herding cats...but I did it and here are Q and E sporting the same outfit in blue and pink...so awesome.

Hope today brings you all bright and cheery smiles….and today is ‘yournewfavoriteday.’

Linking up with “Thoughtful Thursday!”

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon

  2. Elastamom Says:

    That definitely brought a smile to my face!!! So precious.


  3. Lisha Says:

    I dressed my older boys in “coordinating” outfits until the oldest was about 6 or 7. Then the rebellion started. 🙂


  4. Y'vonne Says:

    Seriously could they be any cuter.


  5. Janice Says:

    Those are cute kids! I think you should do The Shining thing one Halloween when they get a little older. Just throwin’ that out there.

    I have a friend who dressed her non-twin boys the same for a while. Then the older boy hit second grade and started rebelling, and so that was the end of that.

    Great blog!

      Thank you! I should, I would have to do the boy girl version but it would be hilarious. They could carry signs and the whole thing…although I must say I was (and maybe still am) terrified of those twins! My sister and I were dressed the same all the time, but once we were old enough we shut it down…thanks for coming by Janice, I really appreciate it!


  6. Katy Says:

    Love love love.

    Aw gorgeous photo! Just stopping by your blog – it’s lovely – after you stopped by mine. My cousin’s son has Cerebral Palsy, we’re at the tail end of raising money for him to come to the States for an SDR operation – they fly out in March, hurrah! So, I have a little understanding of CP and the trials it brings. I wish you all luck on your journey and I’ll be checking back to see how you go with your transition to WAHM too!
