Desperate Times

Stranger: "What's your baby's name?"
Me: "Brynlee"
Stranger: "Oh, I've never heard of that name...for a BOY."
Bryn started out the day without a bow. Until she was called a boy three times. Three times.
Okay, okay, I can see how a black and white outfit might be confusing. So I added a huge purple flower when we went to the park later on. Didn't help.
Stranger: "Awww....What a cute little guy. It's a boy, right?"
I didn't even correct her. I just said yes. It had gotten to that point. This wig will have to do the job, until Brynlee's real hair grows long enough to look like a girl.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Are you kidding me?? With a huge purple bow?? I guess you'll just have to write "I'm a girl" with permanent marker on her forehead. But from the sound of it, that may or may not help. She's such a cutie!

I can't believe someone called your little girl a boy with a big flower!? I think Brynlee is the most darling baby, and I hope our little girl is as cute as she is.

Oh and I don't know many boys who would be in a darling cowl neck sweater either. You have impeccable taste.
