My ds, 3 1/2, pretends he's a girl a lot. His best friend is a girl and he has a new little sister, plus his babysitters all of whom he admires are all girls. So anyhow, he's asked me for a dress. My dh would probably say noway-or at the least be bummed or embarassed that his natural athlete who hits homeruns and tackles him now wants to wear dresses. But despite this I'm considering getting him what he wants and at least he can pretend at home. He likes when I put barrettes in his hair, but they don't last long before he takes them out. Anyone else have any experience or advice in this area? I'd like to go with the flow but you should see the looks we get when he introduces himself as Rebecca or Sara or Sal!
