When we found out we were having a girl the first time around, Jay was pretty insistent that we go with more color neutral themes for everything. We got fish bedding that could easily work for a boy, painted the room a boyish purple, and put the word out to all family and friends – NO PINK.
And most people listened, or at least tried to hide their chuckles when Jay opened a bright pink outfit. We diligently bought a unisex carseat and bouncy seat, and then, when needed, bought neutral sippy cups, spoons and plates. You know, for when we had our boy.
Then Sam came along and the pink hit the fan.
We have pink clothes for long car rides.
Pink PJs for playing with cousins.
Pink hats for playing cowgirl, y'all.
Pink snow clothes for going outside for 2 minutes and wanting right back in (ehem, Sam).
And even pink blankets, pillows, and dolls for playing house on the stairs.
