Aiona (323.4 days ago) The Build a Bear stuff is so expensive! Maybe it`s mean of me, but I`d tell him to buy some material, and I`d let him use the sewing machine to make an outfit for Princess himself.
ash.a (324.4 days ago) My 4 year old son loves pink & purple too. This sounds like something he would do. I would let him - what`s the message you want to send your kid? Be who you are, or pick things to please other people?? I love that my son goes against the grain. It drives my husband nuts, but oh well! haha
stayfitpreggo (324.5 days ago) My 4 year old son loves pink and purple. I let him pick out his wrapping paper for his birthday presents, and he picked pink with purple stripes and a big pink flamboyant bow. I bought them for him. If he is gay, he is still going to be gay, regardless of if I let him have the pink wrapping paper or not. Might as well make him happy with the paper he wants :)
angie2008 (324.5 days ago) Chose your battles is all I can think of. It`s nothing serious and so what if he wants to get his Alvin a pink dress. I could so see my son doing this and he would get it. He currently carries around a yellow and pink blanket- he is 2.
Waiting for Roland (324.5 days ago) Great answer by your bubby summerbabies! Lol! My husband said he.would let him.and take a thousand pictures to use as blackmail.
*Summer Babies* (324.6 days ago) I would get him the pink dress, asked DH and he said and I quote ` Of course I would let him get Princess the pink dress. You can`t be a Princess without a Kick Ass pink dress.` Lol
lilyxox19 (324.7 days ago) I think the pink dress is a moot point since he is already calling the stuff animal Princess.
tto (324.8 days ago) Of course! He needs to be confident in who he is right from the start. Not getting the dress or getting the dress isn`t going to change him. My son likes to play with a baby doll. Rather than follow gender lines, I let both my boys follow their heart. It`s really important to me for them to have good self esteem to fight off whatever unkindness comes their way.
SarahLJ - TTC2 (324.9 days ago) I voted to get the pink dress and asked DH as well what he would do and he agreed with me.
ambielutz444 (324.9 days ago) @2babiesforme- he is the oldest of three boys and there are no girls under the age of 21 in the family so no girls around here to influence him, no little girlfriends that he plays with, my friends all have boys that my 3 boys play with... the funny part is for about the last 6 months he found this little chihuahua stuffed dog with a pink fur around its neck, while visiting my mother that i left in my old room and carried it around until he got this alvin....but i didnt think it was a big deal i let him get a dress for the alvin like bcalove82 said if it were the other way around it would have been completely fine!,... but DH freaked out lol... so i wanted to see what other mommies would do...
2babiesforme (324.9 days ago) Geeez thats a hard one! I think my husband would die lol! Im sure a dress isnt gonna turn him gay but its interesting he wants one. Has he been hanging out with little girls? Or TV to associate?
Waiting for Roland (324.9 days ago) Well I think a lot of husbands are like that but I think it is silly. If a little girl wanted to dress up a bear as a boy it would be fine with him. Men are brainwashed at a young age to think that relating to and liking female qualities in a non-sexual way makes you lesser or inferior. I would just be careful that your son doesn`t accidently get the impression that females in general are less deserving of admiration or respect, which sometimes the message they get when they are convinced not to like ` girl things.` I`m not saying that will happen, just that it can , especially if it happens a lot with nothing to balance it out.
ambielutz444 (324.9 days ago) fyi: i convinved my son to get this red/black dress for his alvin becuase if i let him get the pink one i knew DH would not be happy however,... hubby was still pissed i let him get a dress for his princess lol
