It Happened!

Today someone mistook Kate for a boy.

We were in Hallmark getting Father's Day cards and one of the ladies who works there came over to coo at her. She was wearing her purple striped onsie that says "Sweetie" with a little flower on the chest and ruffly collar. The lady was cooing about "how sweet you are" and how with those blue eyes "you'll be a killer." I thought that was kind of a weird thing to say. Then she looked at me and said "A boy, right?"

Very nicely I said, "No. She's a girl." The lady continued to coo at her and said something about the barber cutting her hair too short. I'm not sure if she meant herself or Kate. We moved on to the cards.

I guess Kate will have to wear pink or flowers or a bow each time she goes out. Fortunately, she does not seem traumatized.

The same thing happened to me with Maegan around her first Christmas at the Nutcracker Market in Houston. The one day I didn't put a bow in her hair....shame on me! People are silly!

Haha, this will happen even in pink! Or at least it's happened to abi wearing a bright pink outfit (usually it's older men who mistake her??) Oh well, just wait till those curls come in!

I consider myself an expert in baby boys and there is nothing boy-like about that sweet little girl! Crazy people.
