When we had Mia a lot of people commented “at least you have one of each”, which was a sentimentality I didn’t really understand. I never minded whether we had boys or girls, when people asked me when I was pregnant what I was having I would usually reply “a baby”. So, school holidays are now on and I took the kids shopping, first to pick something to buy with their hard-earned pocket money, and secondly to the fabric shop to pick fabrics for a dress-up costume of their choice to be made by me. I think I now get why you may want one of each. Reuben picked a star ship that fires missiles for his fighter pilots to go in, and a Jedi costume from Star Wars. Mia picked a Barbie doll, largely based on the fact that it had a crown (luckily it wasn’t too pink as she picked Belle from Beauty & The Beast), and she requested a ballet skirt in purple. Just because Reuben used to watch Dora & Balamory at 4 years old, and Mia can sing the theme to Ben 10 and Star Wars doesn’t mean that, when given the choice, they will move away from traditions. Hello chalk, have you met cheese?
