I took Mini Me on our weekly trip to McDonald's today. We were waiting in line to order, and a little old lady comes up to us and is looking at Sweet Pea and was talking to Mini Me. Then she said to Mini Me, "What is your brothers name?" And, Mini Me simply didn't respond. I think she was a little confused. So, I interjected and pointed out that Sweet Pea is a girl. To which the lady responded, "But she has no hair!?"
Um, she's 6 month old. And, for the record, she was wearing a not-so-subtle pink v-neck polka dotted shirt. Not many boys can pull off that look, regardless of how little hair they have.
Similar thing happened when Mini Me was about the same age. She was wearing a bright pink onesie, and was sitting in the shopping cart with a bright pink shopping cart cover and a little old man asked, "Has he had his first haircut yet?" Um, no, she hadn't. (In fact, Mini Me didn't have her first haircut until she was almost 2 years old.)
