Mommy girls can't like Ninja Turtles
Yes this was my son when we were at the store tonight looking for birthday present for one of my daughters friends. She is in love with the ninja turtles she has shoes, backpack, lunch box, shirts, etc.
I asked him why he thought it was not for girls, and he said because they are not pink.
I knew the time would come when I would have to have the talk with him. I knew as soon as he started school this would happen. I was....prepared.
I brought out the pictures of him at 1 wearing my moms purse on his shoulder and my winter boots. ;)
How do you handle situations like this?
Seriously though ... I would have talked to him about everyone being different and that boys and girls can like the same things if they want!
