Boy or Girl?

I feel bad when I can't tell when someone's kid is a boy or a girl.


Are you usually good about telling the difference?

I usually just pull the "aw, your BABY is so cute" instead of your little boy, or little girl is so cute. haha

That's a safe answer! Most of the time I can tell but I worry that I will be wrong so I usually just say "how sweet" or something along those lines.

I am terrible if they are wearing neuterals. I usually just dont say anything or I say "awww how cute." or something along those lines. I feel terrible when I have called people's babies the wrong gender. MY BAD! Thats why I dress my sons in BOY clothes so there is no confusion! LOL

I try to stay gender neutral. That way I don't hurt anyones feeling.

haha. I dress my girls in pink and people still confuse them for boys.

Tough one! I was with my mom when she did it a few weeks ago. She said "She is so beautiful! How old is she?" The mother said "actually he's a boy, and he's 3 months old" My moms comeback- "OH! Well he's just too pretty to be a boy!"' smh...
