My neighbor stopped by the other day to drop off some mail for my husband that had accidently been put in her mail box. I was feeding my son a snack at the time and she wanted to see him. My son is 8 months old and at snack time he gets some jucie in a sippy cup. As she walked in the kitchen the first thing she said was "whats with the cup" i asked what do you mean and she replied. " its pink with a yellow lid and your son is a boy thats the colors for a girl" i said so. she continued to say that i was gonna confuse him by giving him girl things and that he will grow up confused and want to be a girl. I told her i didnt see a problem and the reason for the cup is because the only sippys my son will use is the take and toss brand. They come in a four pack and are all different colors. Im not gonna throw away a cup because its pink. I think it is just a cup and it doesnt matter the color. Girls drink from blue cups and noone cares. Its not like i put him in dresses and bonnets. He plays with cars and has only i guess what you would say are boy toys.....so am I wrong or is it just a cup and the color doesnt matter?...........
Just wanted to add a little something...yesterday after posting this I came across my sons bumbo seat and guess what? Its purple. I had forgotten about it as he out grew it and I put it away.. I got it for $8 as opposed to paying $40 for a blue one...I was half tempted to call my neighbor over and have my son sitting in his purple bumbo just to get a rise out of her but I didnt and now I just laugh when ever my son uses something pink or purple. Some people.
