Pink is the new Black! My son has pink shoes

Okay so maybe not!  But, I personally love the color pink!  It’s one of my go to color choices and the brighter the better.  I have the cutest nike tennis shoes with just a bit of shocking pink.  Love these shoes, but as you can tell they don’t get worn to often.  Ugh… because working out and Michelle are not very good friends.

As much as I covet the color pink, no one else in my family has that same oooh reaction.  I do live with 4 males and naturally I am  singled out  in the girly department. Fast forward to today at a visit to the in-laws and a what? Surprise for their grand-babies.   This is a very common occurrence, it’s not often that we show up and the kids don’t have a “surprise” waiting for them.  Without fail my father-in-law passes out his buys to each kid.  I honestly love the surprises, my in-laws are very generous to their grandchildren and shower them with clothes and toys.

BJ {who is only 3} has been wearing baseball cleats for a year that are 4 sizes to big for him.  Mind you he is not on an actual baseball team and the cleats are his eight year’s older brothers.  But this kid loves his big brother and wants to be just like him. My father-in-law {bless this man} decided to purchase cleats for his grandson.

Exhibit A


When I first saw the cleats I immediately knew they were pink, but I realize my in-laws saw red. My husband and oldest, where so protective of not hurting feelings that they raved about how cool they were and how he finally had his own cleats. I was so proud of my eleven year old for being non-judgmental and not making any awkward situations.

My SON loves them.  They are soccer cleats and they are pink, but as the thoughts ran through my head on how to approach the situation.  I decided, I was making a bigger thing out of absolutely nothing.  My son loves them so why should I put a stereotype on the color pink.  Is the color pink only to be dawned by females?  I think not!  My mission is to raise my boys not to judge a book by it’s cover.  Not to see something for what it looks like, but for what it is.

So hey, my kid has pink shoes!
