    What beautiful and happy looking children! In some photos of K&O, they look so alike, and in others they look so different! I like how relaxed your family is with allowing your daughter to sit at the table sans clothing, and I was wondering if you had any guidelines regarding nudity as your children grow older. Will you allow your daughter to sit around nude when the boys are teens, or will it be something you plan to stop at a certain age? No judgment here, just curious, as I too am raising young boys and girls, and always open to parenting ideas! Happy Thanksgiving.

    If I am forced to choose, then I would choose the Fridays out with the twins, twinny shopping and Meera’s pink birthday party!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
