It's A Boy!

This colour is da bomb. Hyuk hyuk.

Ever wonder where the colour scheme blue is for boys, pink is for girls came from?

I don't have the answer. But I did spend my weekend painting a blue bedroom for my friends and the blue bundle they're expecting, followed by helping my parents paint their master bedroom a delightful yellowy bile colour.

But who's to say blue has to be for boys? I say Bombs are for boys.

While smearing a blue-tinted chemical all over the walls of a baby's room, I had a little fun. Bombs, bums, people getting shot and a beautiful palm tree, complete with coconuts.

Although you might think some of these images are not appropriate for a baby's room (or anybody else's for that matter), remember: babies can't see. Or understand.

A work of art.And, these crude blue temporary paintings are certainly better than what used to cover these walls: Life-sized, frightening, hungry jungle animals.

Okay, they were not exactly "life-sized", but they were huge, floor-to-ceiling, and they were most definitely frightening. Jamie, an innocent toddler friend of ours, screamed for her life upon viewing these enormous hand-painted animals.

And she spent the whole day watching Madagascar over and over again! That movie features nearly all of the animals that blessed these walls: a zebra, a lion, a giraffe, and some others. Which really proves just how incredibly scary these painted animals must have been, driving an animal-loving toddler into hysterics and all.

How the previous owner's offspring managed to live in that room is beyond me. But that kid is gone, along with all the animals. Unfortunately, so is poor Jamie's bladder control whenever she sees a kitten or a birdy.

Blue was thought to be a colour that brought good luck to the wearer. Girls were deemed too worthless to bother dressing them in blue. Sad but true.

Yeah blue. I'm very accustomed to blue now. Boys can wear pink right? Please say yes. I promise I'll only put him in pink at home. And then take pictures to blackmail him later in life when he backtalks.

But yeah. Those animals were kind of creepy in the long run. But then they were kind of cool too. But I have a Noah. So animals are pretty OK around here. As long as they come in twos.
