HE came out of MY vagina, I change HIS diapers...don't tell me "NO...that's a girl!"***update with sightly older pic***
Ok..maybe I am a little frustrated. But seriously? I cannot stand when random people argue with me when I tell them my son is a boy and not a girl. Like really? I am his mother for Petes sake!!!! I think I would know my childs gender! In all level headedness, I understand to an extent that people would be confused. My little dude has big green eyes like his daddy, Long dark eyelashes like me, And long (we are talking mid-back and very curly, to his little tush when wet) hair. He is very...pretty so to speak. But we dress him very masculine...camo pants and monster truck shits, shirts that say " mamas little man"...very boyish themed and very boyish colors. Most of the time I get the whole, "Oh what a sweet little girl!" or the casual "look how cute she is!" To which I simply smile and say "Thank you...HE is a very sweet little BOY" or "Thank you, but when HE is at home HE is not as cute and well tempered as HE looks." I don't get offended or get upset...I just see it as an honest mistake. Sometimes it is just "Thank you!" a smile, and I walk away. Now keep in mind it can be a little irritating when he is with us and both his siblings...his brother dressed like him and his sister dressed to the teeth in pink and glittery things, but I usually don't mind. What irks me to the core is when I have people try to tell ME that MY SON is a girl after telling them otherwise. I have heard things like "ARE YOU SURE?!?!?!" or "NO, I KNOW A GIRL WHEN I SEE ONE!" First off, yes I am quite sure. I have had 2 years, almost 3, of diaper changes and baths, and a birth certificate to prove it, also ...I know a penis when I see it. Secondly..obviously you do not know a girl when you see one, because HE IS A BOY. HIS NAME IS DONALD. Then come the dirty looks and very unappreciated "advice". "You need to cut that poor kids hair!" "you are making your son gay!" "only girls should have long hair!" no...no I am not, and how dare you make such a homophobic statement....and that is wayyy off from true. And its not just older people...it is people of all ages. Not everyone is like that...the ones who are smart enough to see the boy clothes and see him for him think the long hair is awesome and adorable...just as I do. I get a toon of compliments on how healthy his hair is, how well kept it is, and what beautiful lashes he has! He is my bruiser lol. He beats up his older brother ( which really needs to stop and time outs are NOT working) and plays in puddles and mud. He is a total Manly kid :) I don't know...I usually don't let it bug me, but some people really irritate me about it. His brother daniel has very short hair. He doesnt like it in his face and prefers it short, but his father has long hair and he thinks his brother Donald's hair is awesome long. It is how He likes it. We cut 3 inches off and he was PISSED! He wouldnt talk to us for 2 days! Do any of you have a boy with long hair?
*update....this pic is right after his last cut...have more on my phone but cannot upload. dunno how.
