Before I had a child, I was always against the notion of the ‘pink is for girls, blue is for boys’ type of thing, as I thought children should choose what colours they like and not have it forced upon them – you don’t have to like pink to be a girl. And boys can certainly wear pink! When I was pregnant, although I guessed the gender (I saw it on the ultrasound screen – I did a lot of research!) I was against telling anyone the gender as I didn’t want a huge amount of pink, princessy things given to us, should people buy us gifts (although I would have been thankful, regardless). I was always like ‘my daughter will not wear pink’. ‘My daughter will not wear flower headbands’. You know, before you have children you somehow have such a different idea of what is important with parenting, don’t you?
Anyway, I had to stop and have laugh yesterday. Hannah is currently obsessed with putting things on her head, and she loves flower crowns. And her outfit. Well, let’s just say things change when you actually do become a parent. Let this photo illustrate my point. And let’s just stop and have a laugh about things we said in the past, shall we?!
