For 6 years, I identified as a “girl mom.” I had two of the girliest girls ever, and we did girlie girl things. We bought tutus, glitter, and all things pink. We had tea parties with friends, and princess parties when we were bored. All our friends had girls as well, so it was easy to plan a girl theme for each playdate. And then I got pregnant. Friends and family took turns guessing if it was another girl or a boy in the sea of girls. It didn’t matter what our friends predicted, a boy was on the way whether I was ready or not.
I wasn’t opposed to having a son. As a matter of fact, I wanted a son from the time I thought of starting a family. It was the fear that now I already had two girls, how would a boy fit into this equation? My fears quickly dwindled as my little guy arrived safely after a horrible pregnancy. And now, something I thought was impossible has happened- our pink frufru glitter bows have given way to superheroes and froggies. Shopping for my son is so much more fun than I thought it would be.
As he’s taking his first steps, new rainboots and a rain jacket are on the list. I was introduced to Stephen Joseph from a friend who raved about the cute styles and matching accessories. The blue shark resonated most with me, because I love all things aquatic. What sets Stephen Joseph apart from the rest is their eye for detail. The inside of the rain jacket is soft t-shirt material. Other rain jackets are PVC all around, which can be quite uncomfortable, especially when wet.
The pull handles on our Stephen Joseph rain boots make for easy on – easy off. I’ve been told that boys don’t like to do things for themselves, but time will tell. Hopefully he will find putting on his rain boots to jump in puddles enough incentive!
