I blinked and he went from baby to boy.
Today we went to Trader Joe's to get some much needed groceries. As always, Judah sits in the front of the cart, Samuel in the back, and Silas rides in the Beco.
When we got to the counter to checkout the boys started handing the worker guy our food. He asked them, "Are you guys the big brothers?" Judah said, "yes."
Worker Guy: Wow your mom has her hands full. Do you change your little sister's diaper? (Silas was wearing a grey shirt with blue, red, and white writing and red pants.)
Judah and Samuel: blank stare
WG: I'll take that as a no.
Do you at least help with your sister?
Judah: I don't got a girl.
Worker guy didn't hear him.
Silas smiles at the worker guy.
WG: What a pretty smile!
I've had that happen before with both Judah and Samuel, where a stranger calls them a girl. With Judah I would correct them, but I don't anymore. Maybe it's because I don't want them to feel bad. Maybe because it's not worth the effort. The funniest time was when we were at the pharmacy and the girl said, "Oh I saw you with your daughter (Samuel) earlier. She's so cute! How old is she?" I said, "Two." Then she said, "What's her name?" That caught me off guard and I said, "Sam." So funny! I was laughing hysterically on the inside and, as soon as I got out of the store, on the outside!
Maybe from now on I should make sure people know my boys are boys.
