Recently, X came home with three bead necklaces he made at daycare. One for him, one for me and one for S. Mostly, X wears them around, and once in a while makes a big production over "giving" us a necklace he "made for you". In the necklaces are beads every color of the rainbow plus some.
At one point, he walked up to me with his necklaces "Tommy* says that pink is a girl color." I asked X if he likes the color pink.
"Do you think it's a girl color?"
"Well, then it's just a color and you are allowed to like any color."
I'm not sure he's convinced and it'll be interesting to see how many pink beads or colors come home on future art projects. Now I feel the need to go get this pink flying fairy for my 3.5 year old boy's Easter basket.
