Pony-tails and Horns
First of all, I did not instigate this in any way, shape, or form. I don't know what Ben will think of me posting these pics cuz he wasn't such a fan of it and it actually kind of caused an arguement between us! He wasn't upset about it until we were going to go to some co-worker's garage sale and I thought it would be just fine to leave Miles' pony-tails in (I did take Jonas' out because, one, he wasn't really having fun with it. And two, it's already hard for people to tell if he's a boy or girl anyways). Ben, ummmm, felt otherwise. He started quoting lines from the Proclamation on the Family about gender indentity. I absolutely LOVE the Proclamation, but come on? I don't think Miles was putting pony-tails in his hair because he wanted to be a girl. In fact, he was calling himself "Ferdinand" and his pony-tails were instead "horns." (We have a book about a bull named Ferdinand - a bull, hence a BOY). So we sat in the car with Miles' pony-tails - or horns - still in. Luckily for Ben the garage sale was closed up for the day!
So I don't know? Was I wrong in letting Miles go to a garage sale looking like that? I mean, I wouldn't take him to church like that. Or am I just a girl thinking it was a pretty cute and totally harmless thing to do?
