Yesterday we took Maple to a different pet store than we usually shop at and this lady in line behind us started petting Maple and starting asking questions about her. Like okay this is standard but when I said that Maple was a girl the lady’s immediate response was “Well you need to get her some pink things!!!” And I was just…so…thrown off. I had lived in my genderless color world for so long I forgot that people still think like that. I’m so glad that my family doesn’t gender colors. My baby blanket growing up was light blue even though I was female. And I’m so glad Maple is getting the same treatment.
Here’s Maple rocking her new name tag and teal blue collar!
Teal and blues just fit her so well!
