She explained that dressing them in the same outfits simplified the process and eliminated the need to choose separate outfits for each child.
Dressing triplets in the same clothes is a cliche. Many parents want to avoid it. Meg Korzon thought the same when she was pregnant with triplet boys. “I thought it was cheesy for sure,” Korzon, 31, told TODAY. She was also afraid that she wouldn't be able to distinguish between her children if all of them wore the same outfits. These thoughts of never repeating outfits went out the window when Korzon and her husband, Tom, a captain in the U.S. Army gave birth to Leo, Elias "Eli" and Oliver. These triplets joined their elder sister, Piper, 4. "Suddenly I was buying three of everything," she said.
Korzon posts about her kids regularly on TikTok and often her viewers tell her that she does not treat her triplets as individuals because she dresses them the same. She decided to dedicate a video to respond to why she chose to do so. “My first reason is decision fatigue. As a parent, I spend all day making decisions, and the last thing I want to do is to think too hard about what they need to wear,” Korzon began. She discussed that while shopping it becomes easier to shop for the same kind of clothes for her kids. “I don’t want to have to figure out two other things that I like, so I just grab three of them,” Korzon said.
“If I were to dress them individually, what I think their personalities are, I feel like I’m putting them in a box. I feel like that would be me deciding who they are and who they’re developing into,” Korzon expressed. “When the day comes and they want to express themselves with their clothing, I am here for it,” she added. She shared that in parks especially she likes to dress them in similar onesies. Korzon shared that families on vacations usually wear the same bright-colored outfits so that it is easier to keep a headcount. She likes to follow the same principle when it comes to her kids. “When we're in a public place, it is much easier to scan and see three of the same outfit,” said the mother of four.

Currently, the triplets are 2 years old. Korzon shares that around the same age, her daughter had opinions on how she would like to be dressed. “At this age, my daughter was starting to push back when I picked out certain things. She had opinions about clothing, but not these guys,” she said.
“Whenever I make content I think of it through the lens of what I would have liked to have seen when I was pregnant and scared of what my life was going to look like after kids,” Korzon shared, discussing the kind of content she likes to put out. “I want others who feel the same way to know that yes, it can be chaotic — but it’s really wonderful.” Korzon enjoys the connection and appreciation her social media posts have brought her and she does not get affected by criticism. Her account is filled with beautiful family moments at local farms and in their neighborhood. It is a delight to watch her share her life with her viewers.
