How could this cute little boy cause such an uprising? Well to be honest, it's not him, it's me. I have such a terrible streak!
My adorable little nephew is three and is in the throws of potty training. He was at his best friend's house, Eyla(pronounced I-la). Eyla is a girl and is a bit older than Justin. He looks up to her. Ahhh, and you see where this is going. He had an accident and they found some PJ bottoms that Justin could borrow. They were hot pink. He has been wearing them every night to bed and was having full on fits to wear them to school. My SIL said no to wearing PJs to school. My BIL did not find find this funny in the least. He believes that boys only wear boy's clothes and girls wear their clothes. He isn't going to bend on this one. I'll just bend for him. Go ahead and say it, "Oh dear God what did you do SonyaAnn." I did what any great and wonderful aunt would do. I found the cutest/girly/screaming pink pjs I could find and they have the little mermaid on them. Then I bought him a pink leopard skin purse, a tiara and Den found a pair of pink plastic heels to finish off the outfit. We also got him a cup with all of the Disney princesses on it. There might have even been a pink wand and bracelets in there. And to be fair my 6 month old nephew, Andrew, got an adorable pink sleeper.
Guess how this went over with my BIL? No go ahead guess. Yup you got it, he isn't happy. When DJ was little he dressed in all of his sister's dress up clothes. My SIL even bought DJ a purple boa. He kept it for years. No one around us(Den's side or my side) was ever raised that you weren't allowed to play with the opposite genders clothes/toys. Not my BIL.
OK so I thought that this would be a funny joke and I even wrote a note for Cindy(SIL) to save all of the pink stuff for her next baby. She is really hoping for a girl.
I also figured since it was PJs no one would see him. My BIL wouldn't be happy but Justin could just wear the PJs to bed and no one would know.
And now to the anarchy part, Justin is over the moon happy with the box we sent. He even wanted to show all of the neighbors what his Tia(that's what he calls me) and bubba(that would be Den's name-haha) sent him.
My SIL took him to all of the neighbor's houses and let him show off.
Don't let me around your kids,
