Gender Identity

We went to the mall on Friday night which has become our typical Friday night event. After Bailey played at the play area and went to see the puppies, the 'shif' and 'neo,' at the pet store, he and daddy found me coming out of Old Navy where I had returned a pair of flip flops Bailey wouldn't wear. We wandered into the toy store and looked at Cars toys for a few minutes. Then we let Bailey wander around and look at some other things. We found a Curious George doll and Jake asked him 10 times who it was just to hear Bailey say "dGoer." Then Bailey found this...a pink stroller! Jake was so proud! Then I began to wonder why they don't make a blue stroller. Little boys LOVE anything with wheels, why not make them a masculine stroller they can play with! Bailey would push "Mack" and his "choo" around in it and I'm sure Snoopy would get to ride, too. Bailey pushed that pink stroller around the aisles of the toy store for what seemed like an eternity. Prying it out of his hands so we could go was no small feat!

Maybe he could push one of those little shopping buggies? You can pretend he's at Home Depot.

just make sure to weigh those down...emma had a little tikes one that she was so rough with that it tipped right over with every push...it drove both of us nutso!

Oh, they do make manly strollers - trust me! Graco makes navy blue ones and the fabric is plaid. I went to buy Sara a new stroller about a year a half ago (her previous one had broken multiple times), and Sky was literally wailing because he wanted one too! I was so desperate to shut him up that I called Joshua at work and asked if I could buy Sky a stroller too (it was a tight month). He heard the noise and said "yes"! So, I walked through the mall that day with Sara pushing her lavender, butterfly stroller, and pushing his "black" one (he thinks navy is black)! He used it to help daddy mow the lawn until we bought him a real lawn mower (we have the same one Bailey has!).

I agree about the boy stroller.
Maybe you could make lots of money with that idea!!
