This is a back-dated post…
I was told that at Darrius’s age, he is still unaware of his se*uality so he tends to choose toys that he feel ‘connected’ with in his daily life. Earlier he likes to play with masak-masak (imagination cooking) toys as he wants to cook like me or his daddy. In fact he still do now but much lesser.
Then somewhere around the end of last year, he saw a PINK toy pram/stroller in Toys R Us and insisted to push it around. I was pretty amused then and even put a baby doll on the stroller for him.
And guess what? THAT WAS A MISTAKE! He went on and push the stroller round and round the store for a good 20 minutes! I felt really silly following him! I think some people looked at me with funny stares! The worst part was, he refused to leave without the stroller! And each and every time we visit TRUS, he will ask for the stroller and I was glad the staff has tied all the strollers so I can give the excuse to Darrius.
I was thinking to myself that since Darrius likes to play with this stroller and doll so much I decided to ask my MIL about the one her other granddaughter has in the house here. Luckily she has not dumped it…
Now that he can play at home, he has in a way stopped asking for the PINK stroller when we went into TRUS now. Phew! And luckily the one at home is not PINK! hehehehe
Sometimes I will ask him ‘How is your baby?’ and he will reply me ‘Baby is sleeping’. Don’t he looks like a cute lil’ daddy? 😛 And yes, he is still playing with the stroller and the ‘baby’ now… or everyday for that matter.
Hopefully when he grows up, he will play with those linear motion stuff and not girly stuff! Or else, that will be mommy’s greatest fear! 😐
