Funny - I loved ruffles when Dorothy was little, even though I hate hate hate the "baby ho" attire.

My brother and sister-in-law got a bunch of white onesies and bodysuits and had a big tie-dye party. They ended up with very cute unisex clothes, some of which Dorothy wore as a baby, too. http://contracheck.com/gallery/Dorothy_Week15plus/P6190354

AMEN SISTAH! I just got back from Target shopping for long sleeve shirts and dress pants for the big kid. Evidently, once boys are in size 8 and above it's illegal to wear a PLAIN shirt. I did end up finding a couple, but I'm fairly certain they are the exact same as what he wore last winter, just one size up. And pants that don't have pockets/zippers/flaps around the knees? Forget it. And don't get me started on the gross denim "dressy" pants that have off white stiching. Is it so wrong to just want a pair of plain nice pants? With expandable waist, of course. And least girls get a little variety. PS, I really actually do love the lettuce ruffle.

I hate how gendered baby clothing is. Ugh.

I have many times bought kids' clothes (and teenage t-shirts too) at a local craft store. They sell just plain normal shirts and stuff like that with the idea that crafty people are going to buy them and add all kinds of frills and stuff. It's a great source for just plain normal clothing.

I agree that the clothing in most stores is way to gender-stereotyped. And before Dorothy was born, I was making promises against buying her pink clothes.

But then I became a Daddy to a baby girl. And society, genetics, whatever, then eff'd up my mind.

I still do try to buy her at least some clothes that are gender-neutral. And I don't get her any of the saccharine-sweet, gag-me-with-a-spoon girlie clothes. But I do find myself eyeing and picking up clothes what are definitely for girls.

Some day, I may be desensitized to the cuteness. Until then...

Elizabeth: Neat idea! And so colorful, wow... last time I tie-dyed something was 20 years ago and it wasn't nearly that bright.

Kristin: Ah crud, so you're telling me the boy stuff gets worse, eh? egh.

Jo(e): Also a good idea, thanks... I'd never thought about that before.

Tom: I know, and I fully allow for the possibility/eventuality that I will pink-up my girl as well (if she is a girl, that is)... but right now I'm going to choose to rail against it =) I already know I've changed, two years ago I thought that the glut of little dresses for baby girls was ridiculous, for girls that can't even walk... and yet every time I walk by a nice black velvet number at a store, my heart catches in my throat.

Some time ago, I did need to buy a house for my business but I did not have enough cash and could not purchase anything. Thank goodness my fellow adviced to get the personal loans from reliable bank. So, I acted that and used to be satisfied with my short term loan.
