I’m a feminist. Like, hardcore. I go to marches and donate money to women’s causes and write about feminism on the internet all the time. It’s a very big part of my life. So, the moment the doctors announced “It’s a girl!” in the delivery room, I felt a sense of tremendous responsibility to raise the next generation of feminist and turn my daughter into a kickass woman.
24 hours later I was sitting in my hospital room gazing at my sweet daughter and had this thought: ZOMG I GET TO BUY BABY GIRL SWIMSUITS SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Which is patently ridiculous. My daughter was born at the end of June. She won’t be ready for the pool until next summer. She has no need for swimwear. Yet.
What she will need very soon is little hats for the cold months. If there’s anything cute than baby swimwear, it’s baby hats! Here are some that I’ve been eyeing for fall:
