No, I dont have two beautiful Girls!

No, I don’t have two beautiful Girls!

Why is it so important to people that my beautiful, intelligent, funny, talkative four year boy fit into the norm, of the short back and sides.  There isn’t a week that goes by that my son doesn’t get called a girl.  It just cannot be a case of mistaken identity as while he may have amazing long red hair he still dresses like a “boy”.  Dark runners or blue wellies, a monster coat, jeans and his t-shirts are usual some sort of super hero or prehistoric animal. 
When I correct the person and say “no he’s a boy”, the things that have being said to me just get better every time; ‘oh you usually only see girls with red hair, oh really, it’s the hair, sure it so hard to tell these days’. Just typing those few is boiling my blood, it shouldn’t matter so much that I don’t cut my sons hair.  It gives him character it looks brilliant on him and while his hair doesn’t make him it just adds to his character.
We live in a world were different is still frowned upon, no strike that it’s the country we live in, Ireland is still full of the crowd followers the hush hushes what will the neighbours say?  So my boy has long hair until he tells me he wants to cut it, it stays.  We had the conversation last week, but he told me he likes his hair and that John (his uncle) has long hair, so he not cutting his hair.  Why did the topic of cutting his hair come up someone had said it to him about having long hair, he’s four butt out world let kids be kids express themselves, long, short, red, blue, yellow hair does it matter, no!  As long as the child is happy, fed, watered and loved.
I don’t have two beautiful girls, I have one beautiful boy and one beautiful girl.

Just as I sat down to type this I came across this video Little girl cuts long gorgeous hair, why? it brought tears to my eyes, it made me thankful for my children, and the little girl in the video is so special.  There is a message in this to all those who look for the norm and judge me and my child.  Hair is hair but to some it is life or death and can mean a lot, be thankful for what you have get on with life and keep your comments to yourself.

Frozen Style, You Got to Have – baby/toddler

Frozen Style, You Got to Have, baby/toddler

My little girl is all about the “let it go” and “building a snowman”, frozen mad yes and she is a mix of total tom boy and girlie girl.  For Halloween I just had to find a frozen dress to fit a one year old, my search began, I took a full day searching the net and I finally came across Superbubby . Some may say the parents are worse than the kids and in this instance your absolutely right, sure when I seen all the fabulous dresses my fingers where itching to get to my purse to buy all the costumes.
  Hubby soon rained me in when I casually said “look at these aren’t they pretty . . .” hubby’s fingers clinched around the purse strings saying “oh come on she’s only one does she really need them???”

And just look at my Little Miss in her amazing frozen costumes, guess who got a hold of the purse!  First time round I bought the Snow White and Elsa Frozen costumes.  I bought both in size 18-24 mouths which come in the style of dress on baby grow, so baby can wear their nappy underneath and it closes with poppers underneath and there is poppers at the neck for ease of getting it on and off.  The Anna Frozen costume was a Christmas present and when herself seen it on Christmas day she wouldn’t put on her red Christmas dress it was Anna dress or as she calls it her “let it go” that she wore all day.
The detail on costumes are fab and so true to the frozen franchise.  The Anna dress is a size 2-3 that is why its full length but the organza part is cut up that little bit shorter which I thought was genius as this is always a part that gets ripped.  The quality of the costumes are perfect but you must follow the care instructions and from personal experience I would hand-wash and stay away from the washing machine, although they say you can machine wash them on a wool cycle at 30′.
  I followed the care instructions while washing the Elsa Frozen dress but some how it went horribly wrong I contacted SuperBubby and their customer service was amazing.  I explained what happened the dress, send them pictures and within two days I had a reply and a promise of a new dress free of charge and when I ordered the Anna Frozen dress they wavered the p&p.  
  SuperBubby where professional and a pleasure to deal with.  The costumes are priced in pounds as they come from the UK but overall they don’t cost anymore than any other costume would cost.  They range in price, (£10.99 up) according to the size and style that you choose but they are well worth it and these prices are well within the range of children costume prices. Believe me I should know I’ve a box load of dress up.  The purse would be a lot heavier if I could cash in the dress up box,  but the fun both my kids have with the costumes is golden.
  We do like the Snow White costume also but it doenst get much of a look in, hence no pic. The frozen costumes get hidden so my Little Miss will get dressed, there has been days where she has pulled the dresses out of the laudry basket to put them on.
Little Miss has learned well she is off to SuperBubby to do some more shopping and I can hear hubby tryin to hide the purse . . .
