“There’s a picture of him wearing a green princess dress for his 6th birthday. Gee where did he get that dress. He sure didn’t go buy it himself.”

Exactly. One of my sons has a dramatic streak. When he was about three he saw some cute little sparkley tutus at the store. He lobbied HARD for one of those sparkly tutus, especially a pink one! LOL! I told him no, Daddy would have a cow if I brought home one of those tutus for him. Same son startled me one day at a playdate by dressing up in his female friend’s princess outfit. Yikes! (He did look awfully pretty, though. :)

What I realized from these incidents was not that he was “really” a girl, but that he really likes fancy clothes! So I got him and his brother some fancy clothes for *boys* — cute pirate outfits, sparkly knight-in-shining-armor outfits, etc.

Lo and behold, no more asking for tutus or dressing up in princess dresses. All he wanted was the clothes, not gender reassignment!

Yep! I think at a certain age and quite young, they want to start picking out their own clothes, and most stores carry 5 times as much girl stuff as boys. Its just a matter of finding the right boy’s store to suit their tastes.
