I am by no means a “girly girl”. I don’t wear high heels. I don’t put on make up every day. I don’t wear dresses all that often. And I sure as heck don’t wear pink. EVER.
I was completely prepared to find out that I was having a boy. I had visions of greens, blues and browns in my future. Earth tones make me feel comfortable. Feminine colors just freak me out, and I absolutely HATE pink!!
So, when I found out I was having a little girl, I immediately thought, ok, well, I will have a little tomboy then, no big deal. I’ll have her wear reds, blues, greens, yellows, oranges. Anything but PINK. Then, it happened. I announced to the world that I was having a baby girl, and the first response from everyone was “Oh, I can’t wait to buy cute pink baby clothes!!!” My future mother-in-law literally SCREAMED in my ear over the phone “I’m going to buy so much pink stuff you won’t know what to do with it all!!” I cringed.
I politely told everyone that I would rather not have pink clothing for Kayleigh, and would prefer it if they would buy other colors if possible. Is that horrible of me?? I just can’t stand the thought of looking at pink on her all day long, every day, when I despise the color. People have already started buying outfits for Kayleigh, and guess what? Most of them are pink. /smh
I’ve tried resisting the pink as long as I can, but I think I’m just going to have to finally give in to it. I certainly won’t be buying anything pink for her myself, but I will politely accept anything pink that comes our way (even though I’ll be protesting on the inside). After all, she will be just a wee baby and won’t even remember wearing pink. Hopefully by the time she’s old enough to know what she’s wearing, and the excitement of my baby girl has worn off, everyone will stop buying pink for her!
Do any of you not so girly ladies have baby girls? Do you hate pink too? How did you deal with it?
