"Don't worry about it."
« on: March 24, 2015, 03:39:58 PM »
So apparently my 4-year-old nephew and his mom were out shopping when he saw some Frozen themed underpants and totally wanted them.  His mom said okay, but those are marketed toward girls, so what if you were playing at school or whatever and your pants accidentally hiked down and the other kids made fun of you for wearing Elsa underwear? 

He replied: "I'd say 'Don't worry about it.  I picked them out.  I wanted them.  Don't worry about it.'"

Don't worry about it.

All I know is that I wish I had his attitude when I was a kid and the other kids were all up in my business.  I just got a lesson on how to deal with people crossing social boundaries from a 4-year-old little boy.

I love his confidence. 

My only question is: Isn't underwear for girls and boys designed differently?  I've only got a daughter so I'm not sure about that...

I thought so too, but apparently this kind would work for both a boy or a girl.  I wasn't there, she posted the story as her Facebook status.  She bought him some boy-themed ones as well.

In my experience, the small accessibility flap on little boy's underwear is used only for entertainment (and not functional) purposes, ha ha.

I normally hate this phrase, but that kid lives life like a boss!

Perhaps he would like to give my nephew (same age) a lesson? He threw a massive fit when I tried to take him into the women's restroom (he had to go) because people would "laugh at him." That was fun. :) That's so great your nephew is so confident!

No, I meant more fabric in front...

I think as long as they size it generously, not a problem. From my experience with nephews/preschool helping, little boy proportions don't make as much difference at that age. (did I put that delicately enough?)

In my experience, little girls and boys can generally wear underwear meant for the other sex without a problem.  If nothing else the little boy can go a size up, but he may not even need that.
