For some reason, I don't really care if Teagan is referred to as a boy because it won't happen for long. I can see how it could happen. She doesn't have a ton of hair, even at 18 months, and what she does have is bleach blonde. She is stockier than her sister and sometimes walks like a little trucker!
If the situation is right, I'll correct the stranger. If the comment comes in the form of a passing shopper at the grocery store, I don't bother. As other parents of multiples can attest to, I get enough attention when I'm out and about. Sometimes I don't have time/feel like having the same conversation again and again. Don't get me wrong though, I appreciate the kind words of strangers.
Jenn, on the other hand, is quite bothered by strangers referring to Miss T as a boy. While she might not correct them outright, she will usually grumble about it under her breath.
Is your son or daughter often referred to as the opposite sex? How do you take it?
