Do you normally dress your kids or does yoru SO? If SO does it, do you lay out or tell him what you want them to wear or does he pick it out?

It really depends on the day and how I feel.

If it's a day I work, I'll lay clothes out for DH so that he can dress Caleb in hte morning. If I'm too tired and completely forget, DH picks out his clothes.

When I'm home and don't work, of course, I pick out the clothes.

Haley dresses herself, and we both dress Tyler, depending on the day. Whoever dresses him picks out the clothes.

I "guide" Kaylee with what to wear and I'm pretty much in full control of what Vanessa wears.

If DH has to get them dressed...I lay out the clothes. He does OK on his own...but I'd rather know they look OK if they are going out or something!

Ditto!

I dress Marshall during the week because Justin is already gone when Marshall gets up and we usually do it together on the weekends, but I usually pick it out or work with Justin to pick it out just to make sure it is okay.

Just depends, sometimes my 12 year old will dress my 3 year old (if I am too busy) but i usually dress my five month myself.
DH sometimes dresses the 3 year old and baby girl.

Well he's been dressing himself since he was 3 or so, he's been picking out his own clothes since he was 4 1/2 or 5. I used to lay them out for him and he'd get dressed now he just grabs what he wants. I buy shorts and shirts that can be interchangable and still match so that he doesn't have to match like colors with like colors and he can choose what he wishes. In the morning he eats by himself, brushes his teeth, makes his bed, gets dressed, puts his socks and shoes on, and then I tie his shoes before we leave, but tying his shoes is the only thing I do. Makes our mornings go VERY smooth which is nice!

Well things like brushing own teeth and getting dressed alone are on the Kindergarten requirement list, so he isn't advanced, they are normal things for his age. Kids should be able to do basic dressing by 2- 2 1/2 years so he was on track in that aspect. ARound here if it's something we feel he is capable of doing we do not do it for him, he does it himself. I don't believe in catering, being a maid, etc. He cleans up his own room, his own dishes, trash, toys, etc. Like I said if it's something he is able to do he's required to do it.

I completely agree with your philosophy. We have Marshall help us pick up his toys everyday in preparation for cleaning his own room and doing more advanced things and we let him help us with basic things around the house just so that he can start learning the concepts and he likes to help so much!
