We live in a very small country town. EVERYONE thinks he is a girl. I can have him dressed in jeans and a tshirt with with cars or dinosaurs on it and people will tell me how pretty my girl is. My husband wants to take him to town naked. Maybe then they'd figure it out! My 6 year old daughter has started telling people, "That's my BROTHER. He is a boy." The wal-mart greeter is the worst! Maci tells that lady everytime, regardless of weather Quinlan is with us or not. She is getting a little irritated. I want to find a SpongeBob shirt that says, "I am 100% Ma-Male!" for him.
I get so tired of telling people, "He is a boy." I wonder if they think I dress my "girl" like a boy sometimes too. My husband went for a haircut once and the lady asked, "Oh..only the one haircut?" while looking at Quin. That irritated me too. I informed her that she would not be cutting Quins hair. I wasn't all that nice about it either.
I wish people would stop putting "Musts" on people. Girls "Must" have long hair. Boys "Must" have short hair. Girls "Must" play with dolls. Boys "Must" like bugs. Quin does like bugs and cars and things but still...he likes to help me cook too. My daughter on the other hand would much rather help her Dad fix the car. Why can't people just let people be themselves?
