When I found out I was having a boy, this was honestly one of my first thoughts. I'm a girl, and even if it's stereotypical of me to say, I did not like action heroes and scary looking aliens/animals/robots/whatever. When it comes to clothes, I will most definitely let Porter wear with most anything he likes (within reason of course). But I really do not want him to have a million Star Wars teeshirts, or Spiderman mittens, or even Cars 2 shoes. I don't like the cartoon stuff, I really just don't. I like homemade (my mom is amazing at making baby/kid stuff). It's funny because I did not appreciate that until a few years ago. My mom used to make all of my clothes when I was little and looking back, that is so awesome. I never had on the same Target stuff that every other kid was wearing (don't get me wrong, Porter def has Target clothes that even i've bought him, I just don't know how to sew). I will never forget all of the leggings I had with hot pink/green/yellow/blue lace at the bottoms- with hair scrunchies to match- all that my mom made me. And dresses. Fancy ones for Christmas and Easter.
As I got older, I become more picky and preferred the clothes that were "cool" I guess. Lame, I know. But now I can appreciate unique and handmade with love so much more than I used to. I really do plan on getting a sewing machine and learning to sew. There are so many things that I see on the internet that I truly feel like I could make, and i'de love to try! I just need someone to spend a few hours giving me basic sewing lessons, and I know I would catch on!
