in the pink

Right, before everyone thinks I'm on an anti-pink campaign and will get hugely upset if we receive anything containing said colour, I better clarify what I mean. If it does turn out to be a girl, that is. Heh.

When Jack was born, I quickly realised that boy clothes are almost always blue and have dogs on them. I like blue and I like dogs, but it's nice to find something a bit different. I didn't go nuts with a particular "boy" theme in Jack's nursery and in fact, we kept it gender neutral (hurrah, we can reuse things for Beanie!) So even if Beanie does turn out to be a girl, I will keep the nursery gender neutral because I don't want it to look like Jordan's wedding dress. That, and I truly cannot be bothered to repaint the spare room.

I know that we won't be able to avoid pink; that's not really a problem. I'm just not a girly girl and can't get into the pink crinoline dress, white patent shoes, bow with elastic hairband, pierced ears at birth kind of thing. Know what I mean?
