We got there and headed straight for the children's section in the back. Ethan, being his usual lively self, was running all over the place, super excited to look at the Scooby Doo books. He blew past some other young kid to get to the SD books, and the kid's mom noticed me walking behind with the stroller. She got her kid's attention and said "Look (insert name here), it's a little baby! Oh, he's so cute!"
Uhhh.... excuse me???
Does my baby girl really look like a boy??? I realize she was wearing a red shirt and denim shorts, but the shirt had ruffles on it and the hat is pink striped! Come on, lady!
So, what do you say to that? I just smiled, said "thanks" and kept going. I think that's probably the best response, but part of me really wanted to embarrass this woman by making some passive aggressive comment like "Thank you, SHE is a great little GIRL!" But I didn't. Yay me.
