Purple is the New Blue!

 As I am sure some of you are aware, I have a son. A little boy called Robert. He looks very much like a boy, even with his long gorgeous eyelashes. Apparently boys have longer lashes than girls. However, every time I am out with Robert in his pram people come up to me and say “Oh what a beautiful baby girl.” Girl?!? He’s a boy! It took me a few seconds to figure out why people thought he was a girl. Then it hit me. His pram is purple. People are assuming he is a girl because he has a purple pram. Since when was purple a girls only colour? In fact since when was any colour a gender specific? Purple isn’t only for girls and besides it’s an awesome colour.

I really do wish people would stop shoving children into gender colour groups. Pink for girls, blue for boys. Like I have ranted in a previous blog, children should be able to explore all the colours of the rainbow. I have no shame in having a purple pram for my son; people who think that it’s gender confusing really do need to get a life. I mean seriously? If I push my son into only likening what his gender are “supposed” to like, surely that would cause him to rebel? I want to let my son express himself and explore all the colourful variety that life has to offer. Purple is the new blue! Plus, I know tons of grown men who love the colour purple, my husband being one of them. PURPLE ROCKS!


Today we are having a family day! We have had a lovely walk in the sun to pick up a few goodies, I am making cookies later (BUNNY SHAPED COOKIES) and we are going to snuggle up together to watch Disney films. I love family days!
