Brown is the New Green

My brother and sister-in-law are expecting a baby girl in December. We haven't had a girl in the family since me, so the grandmotherly types are going insane. I just hope she doesn't end up with a closet full of pink. So I've been looking at the baby clothes lately and I must say.

It is all pink and flowers and things that say "hugs and kisses". I'm going to be sick.

I'm one of those people that only wears black. And if I weren't, I'm still kind of a tom boy. So I think I'm going on mission to save this child. I was at Carson's today and this is what I found:

That would be brown.

Those are flowers in the print, which makes it for girls. But it's brown. Who exactly thought that was cool? Calvin Klein. I don't know what to make of it. But it was this or the pink velvet Adidas dress. Sorry, Kid. You'll thank me later.

I hate those too sweet pink clothes. This is a cute alternative. If I had a baby, I'd dress them in red and purple, regardless of gender.

That's exactly what I was looking for. The closest I got was white pajamas with pastel polka dots and a lavendar elephant. I think I'm going to have to shop online.
