It makes me wonder...


While at Wal-Mart today, an elderly gentleman approached to look at sleeping Hattie. He said, "He sure looks happy." Maybe I heard him wrong, but if I didn't, it's not the first time that someone has mistaken my pink-and-purple baby for a boy. I simply don't understand how people can miss the obvious clues...pink blanket, purple hat, bow in the hair, purple bib. But yet it still happens. I can understand if she's wearing blue, green, yellow, or brown, but this is inexcusable.

Ha ha, that's great. :) Maybe you should get one of those "It's a Girl" ribbons from your baby shower and tie it around her head next time. :)

I agree... how can people be so blind! My son Kaden gets called a girl all the time. I sometimes want to correct them by saying, "Did you not see the HUGE truck on his bright BLUE shirt?! He is a boy, not a 6 month old girl trying to be masculine... DUH!" Anyway Mel, here's our blog: spencandnanc.blogspot.com

Each of our boys have been called girls despite the complete absence of anything pink, frilly, or flowery. Denim & dinosaurs somehow can still be a girl... I guess we just have to accept that some children of God are not blessed with the ability to put two and two together. (this is Kerri posting as Mark fyi)
