I give up. When a four-year-old has a "Not Manly" rule, it's time to throw in the towel. Especially since those rules apparently are legion, mysterious and unpredictable. In the future, I will just ask. All the time. Rue the day, you freaks!
Thats the best thing about being a kid- breaking the rules and getting away with it! Can't wait to see 'em...
..."the dinosaur mittens, which were never worn as they are "very scary mittens"..."
*laughing out loud at how cute that must have been when he said that*
I love it that he wants pink mittens! We were stuck in a shoe store once with a huge swarm of kids and a long wait and Benny walked around collecting every pink shoe he could find. He carried them all around in a giant heap in his arms. Real boys like pink!
Originally baby colors were pink for boys and blue for girls. It switched at some point early 20th century. My son loved pink until the boys at school told him it was a "girl color."
Jessica: I've heard that too. As a female who dislikes pink, but loves blue, I've often wondered why they switched it.
Stephanie: your son has great color sense!
