Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

DH, myself and the baby went to IHOP this AM for breakfast. Riley was in a HOT PINK shirt, jeans, and hot pink shoes with flowers on them - and I swear THREE people called her a "he" or "look at how cute HE is" or "Look at him"
I was STEAMING MAD! SHES IN PIIIIIIIIIINK!
I get that A LOT!!!! Like every day when we're out. And, when I say "SHE" people look at me weird - like Im lying or something. She doesnt have much hair, and her face I suppose could look boyish if she was dressed in BLUE. But C'mon it's pain steakling obvious she is a girl when she is dressed.
Just had to vent!

Wink Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

I TOTALLY had the same prob with my dd. I would have her in a pink outfit and all I would hear was "HE IS SO CUTE".

She did look exactly like her dad. You cannot tell their baby pics apart! Like TWINS! And, no hair....

But, yes, C'MON! PINK????? DUH!!!!! LOOK for the clues people!

I feel you mama!

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

I am so with you on that!!!! My youngest has short hair too and she wears pink all the time! She'll be in her stroller with her pink blanky, pink DRESS and I will still get, "He is a cutie!". I think people just don't pay attention to anything!

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

We got that all the time with our oldest ds. It didn't matter what he was wearing! That stopped around the time he was 2 or so, but a few people have called him a "she" in the past few weeks.

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

yes, since my twins are fraternal people always think one of them is a girl. And it changes, (ie they each take turns being the girl) and it doesnt matter what color I have them in!

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

LOL I'd be mad, too!! My dd had no hair and once wore a DRESS to church and some old lady kept referring to her as "he." I finally introduced her, saying this is GRACE, and this lady looked at me like I was nuts! Like, why would you name a boy Grace? She still didn't get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My friend pierced her dd's ears and that solved the problem, but we opted out of that.

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

Sorry mamas, that totally sucks! I've screwed up boys and girls, but only when they're wearing gender neutral clothing. A baby in pink or in a dress is a girl, for Pete's sake!!

Can you believe that with one or two exceptions when she was much smaller, no-one ever screws Isabel's sex up? I can have her in a white t-shirt and jeans and everyone says "what a cute girl" - it's gotta be all her hair!
