When I go to the baby shops

I wish I'd had a daughter. I saw the dinkiest little yellow shoes yesterday.

So play dress-up! You're not going to have the chance for much longer.

P.S: my nephew looks heart-stoppingly pretty in a dress. AND he seems to prefer it over his more manly attires. You might want to experiment.

Aye aye Rimi! By the way no dinky sunshiny shoes in yellow for bhaeblet?

Yup my aunt would dress up my cousin in all pretty girl clothes till he turned 7 or 8 and started making violent protests :) I keep telling her that someday this boy will be in therapy and spill his guts out to his psychiatrist about how his mom messed up his mental and sexual makeup :)

MM -- I hope I've made you an offer you couldn't refuse :)

Rimi -- No way! WB has looked so male ever since he was born, I never even went down that road, not even in thought. He actually looks masculine, albeit handsome, in pale pink.

Anansi -- Nope, I refuse to buy him shoes. He pulls them off and chews them. I did buy him lots of socks in shades that go beautifully with his clothes. Trying to make the most of what I've got, I guess.

M -- Exactly! Have you heard of the Tamil custom of dressing up boys as girls until they are 8 or older, so that the evil eye does not fall on them?
