Tooty-Toot, Maisy!

Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019

When our daughter was small, we read her the Maisy the mouse books by Lucy Cousins.

In one of them, Maisy has a train.

Somewhere in the text it reads, “Tooty-toot, Maisy!” whenever the train blows it’s whistle.

So now, whenever someone is gassy, we all yell “Tooty-Toot, Maisy!”

Gabriel, a very typical seven-year-old boy, who just finished a bowl of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, is sitting in the large Lazy-boy with his little brother Rainier.

From way over there, I heard the very distinct sounds that send little boys (and their siblings) into gales of laughter.

I told him, “I heard that!”

Gabriel then said, “Imagine if You made a sound like that!”

Tooty-toot, Maisy!

Oh, What a Cute Baby!….What is it?

Baby Doodles, Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019

Flowers, butterflies, hearts, bows, pink…. Frilly pink head-bands with bows and flowers, pink dresses with ruffles and roses buds, girly shoes with flowers and bows and the toes and socks to match. From the top of her darling curly head to the tips of her tiny feminine feet….we love dressing our baby girls in the cutest girly stuff we can get our hands on.

So, in spite of all of the extremely obvious cues when we take our little darlings out in public, do some people insist on saying, “Oh, what a cute baby! Is it a GIRL?” (Or BOY)

A New Friend, Adora-Babies, Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019

Or, if you are a boy mom, and he has short hair, or no hair and is as bald as an egg, is wearing blue-as-blue-can-get from head to toe, complete with as many bright boy-colored stripes as you can possibly squeeze onto him in order to avoid this most annoying, aggravating, head-smacking (yours and theirs) and head-scratching of questions….WHY, then, do people STILL insist on asking this ridiculous question?

I’ve even been aggravated and frustrated enough after getting this silly question so many times with my daughter and both of my sons, enough to deliberately dress then from head to toe in the popularly (and extremely obvious and virtually impossible to mistake) recognizable colors, patterns and styles specific to their gender before taking them out in public.

If you have the answer, I surely would love to hear it, or about your own personal head-smacking experience. Post in the comments below!😀
