Nous nous habillons mutuellement tous les matins. Nous nous habillons tous les matins. I am curious as the need to say we dress each other. Gives me thousands of ideas. Votre question m'amuse beaucoup. Ron

Would you say "Je t'habille" to say "I dress you"?

Bonjour Priscilla ! Yes, you are right. In this case, the verb "habiller" is not reflexive any more, and will accept a direct object pronoun (to dress *someone*): "Elle habille sa poupée." (She dresses her doll.) Reflexive cases are when the reflexive pronoun refers to the subject of the verb: "Je m'habille." (m' refers to "je") I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !

Bonjour Mphoentle, The question was "which of these forms is correct?" You only chose one form but another one was correct as well, so you only got partial credit. You have to choose all of the correct answers in order to get full credit.
