Wrong on so many levels…
When I am out with Eli and he isn’t wearing something that is outright boyish or blue, I often get comments about how pretty “she is.” At first, I was indignant, can’t they see that this is clearly a handsome young man? I guess not.
I can’t tell you how many times people have said, “how old is she?” or “what is her name?” Lamenting about this with my friends, they often say, well in the defense of these kind strangers, he is a “really pretty baby.” I could continue to fight this issue or I could just give in and say, yes he is very pretty boy.
So Internet, I present to you, my pretty little boy. Eli, I am so sorry, this was not was totally my idea. You drew the short stick with me as a Mama my son….
Everyone always asks, “are you going to try for a girl?” Well, I think the answer is officially “no need to, I’ve already got a pretty little Eli.”
