Does everyone know this?! Am I the last one? *lol*

This article from thevintagenews.com explains how way back in the day, boys wore pink and girls wore blue. I DID always wonder growing up in Catholic school/world why the Virgin Mary was always decked out in blue. I did notice that.

Long story short, pink was just seen as a lighter shade of red, and red is passionate and fiery and was associated with men and boys. Blue, so calming and peaceful, was for us chicas. But at FIRST, all kids just wore all-white everything because they could easily bleach it all clean.

Makes so much sense!!

If I had ankle biters that's what I'd do. People would think you're nuts until they realized how easy the laundry would be? And it's not like babies consume any of your big stain offenders (red wine, chocolate etc.) and even then, who cares. Not like baby has a job interview at 3!!

...It's raining again so I'm researching weird things *Lol*. Again, sorry if everyone already knew this and I'm once again super late to the party. ;)
