I'm Comfortable With This... Really!

At the playground, recently, a young boy told Louise that he liked her shoes and would like a pair of his own. They were little white slippers with bows on them. This caused his mother to laugh nervously and explain to him that they were girls' shoes.

She laughed even more nervously when he asked Louise if they came in pink.


  1. Ok, so my 2 1/2 year-old son insists on having his toe/fingernails polished along with his sister and they fight over her ruby "Dorothy" shoes. I don't have a problem with it, it's natural...and cute! :)

  2. Nor do I. Kids have better things to worry about than gender-appropriate clothing choices. His mother, though, was clearly a little embarassed.
