Boys With Older Sisters

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

It’s a fact…

Boys with older sisters get to try things that boys with only older brothers would get teased mercilessly for.

They get to paint their nails, try on princess dresses, put on makeup…

…and wear their sisters big, fluffy, purple bathrobes.

Or pretend to be purple Yoda.



  1. Too cute! I have a feeling that with three older sisters, my little boy is going to be providing me with lots of opportunities for pics like this one!

  2. What a cutie! We have 2 girls who also like to play beauty parlor, often doing mani/pedis on their dad since I won’t let them mess mine up! I’ve been perusing your blog for awhile. Gotta love the chaos of family life, right? But you do a great job showcasing both the irritating (grocery trips when they’re tired) and the really joyful. Keep it up! Susan

  4. Simon is an only child, but he loved wearing my heels, necklaces, bracelets…etc. He also has a thing for purses and when we are in a store and he sees one he tells me “Mumma, I neeeeeed it!” So I gave him one of my old ones to play with. 🙂 We try to be gender neutral about our parenting and let him choose what he likes and wants to play with.

    • We do the same, but the sibling influence is strong. 🙂
