God must have know what he was doing when he decided to give me a little boy. Why? Because I am so picky when it comes to my own clothes, can you imagine how hard it would have been for me to dress a little girl?
There are a couple of things I'm not a big fan of-
I'm not a fan of the " Daddy's Princess" , or the other cheesy saying type of clothes except on maybe a newborn or young infant, then I would be nice and let that rule occasionally slide. I mean Ethan had a few things that had quotes and stuff on them, but it is mostly few and far between and they tend to become his "play clothes" that I don't care if he gets dirty. Like I said sometimes its cute, most of the time its annoying.
Same thing for the character shirts- I can't stand this for either gender. I mean its one thing for the kid to like the show, but its another to be a walking billboard for it. Why does your kid need Yo-Gabba-Gabba or Mickey Mouse everything? Really? No thanks. I do have one firm exception to this- Superhero shirts. Not the ones with 10 characters on it, but a good ole fashion Superman or Batman t-shirt are totally ok. I'm pretty sure I only feel this way because I had a boy first, had E been a girl I don't know if I would feel the same.
( yeah yeah, I know I just said no Mickey Mouse, but they're the official ears, they don't count since he doesn't actually wear them)
Also why do people- ie clothes makers feel like little girls should live in pink and purple, and if I'm lucky maybe throw a little yellow in there? I mean they can wear green and blue,brown and orange and red too, I promise, it won't kill them. Don't get me wrong I love pink and purple, but don't plan on ever having a little girl dressed head to toe in either. Little pops of it here and there sound good to me.
I see kids all the time at work breaking all my "little girl fashion no-no's" and can't help but inwardly cringe. If I just bashed your daughters entire wardrobe, sorry... we can still be friends right?. Like I said, there is a reason I have a little boy and not a little girl.
Of course when the time comes, knowing me I'll probably break all my no-nos. Oh well.....
