And No Sweatpants with Ass-Words, Either

Girly is ok – and has always been ok. And the little girlies like it – I get that. Babybeast is attracted to sparkly items like a darn magpie.

But I’m picky. I have standards. I have…..um…..issues.

To wit:

1) No giant bows like this.


Or this:

2) No princess wear, however cute. Princess theme is ok, I guess, but anything that affirmatively labels the child a princess (or a “brat”) is a no-go.

3) No licensed characters (note the double no-no here).

4) No branded logo clothing. My children are not billboards – if they are going to advertise, I want royalties.

5) Anything ridiculous. Even kids have personal dignity – we should let them keep at least a scrap of it in public.


6) Death-themed items for infants and toddlers. It’s creepy, for Pete’s sake!

I understand that other people put their children in fluffy reversible branded logo licenced character death princess clothing with matching bows that reduce their field of vision to a tiny pinhole area, but that’s just not how I roll.

With that in mind, I’m not responsible for dressing other people’s kids, and unless your child is something grossly inappropriate, I’m not going to bat an eyelash whatever she or he wears, so there’s not need to be on the defensive if you are really into fluffy reversible branded logo licenced character death princess clothing with matching bows that reduce their field of vision to a tiny pinhole area.

So yes, I’m cool with girly. But I’m perfectly at peace with my pickiness too.
