Today I’m posting as part of Calling All Kids, a series hosted by Alida Makes that looks at kids clothing and gender expectations.
I love Alida’s concept for this series. Challenging gender expectations is something I’ve done all my life, and it seems that my boys are following in my footsteps. Which makes it interesting when their dad is a quintessential Texas football coach. Let’s just say that he’s broadening his horizons on acceptable clothing too.
So Tater really likes pink and purple. And why shouldn’t he – they’re just colors. So when he custom ordered a purple shirt, I was happy to oblige. With a gray pocket as a nod to dad.
Side note – one of these days Tater is going to realize not all moms custom sew whatever clothes you want. Until then, I will (mostly) enjoy his requests.
Side note number two: do you ever catch a glimpse of your future kid? Yeah, that picture above -suddenly I saw Tater at 16 for a moment. And this kid is going to a HEARTBREAKER if that photo is any indication. Purple shirt and all.
This shirt is a self drafted one, just a basic button up. I upcycled the fabric from another shirt, and the shorts are actually these W Pants cut to shorts length after Tater got a hole in the knee. He is a boy, after all.
