She has a purple pram?

Because a random old lady who wanted to look in the pram and see the baby (as they do) told me off for exactly that! Are the fashion police going to arrest me? Will my daughter be scarred for life?

P.s obviously this is a light-hearted thread but the lady was genuinely disgusted in me and made a point of telling me so. Thought she was going to phone childline on my baby's behalf.

Today! Today my 18 m dd was being dragged walking out of the supermarket today and we were greeted by the dad of a neighbour.

"What's the matter son?"
"Why's he greetin?"
"Poor wee man!"

SHE was wearing a pink and orange (so shoot me) jumper with a big cat face on with skinny jeans and red Mary Janes.

But she has almost no hair.

Honest guvna.

I am just interested

and considering having her wear a massive glittery hair band all the time

DFIL told us off for getting DD a blue pram (only decent one we could afford). He also was horrified that DSIL painted DNephew's room green. shock At that point we gave up trying to figure out his colour preferences.
But red and purple? Clearly you are not thinking straight. Orange and black would have been the way to go.
