It's happening. The Fifty Shades of Grey baby boom we here at The Stir predicted months ago is very much a "thing." Moms are announcing right and left that Christian Grey got them pregnant (with a little help from a real live man).
But ladies, some of y'all seem to be taking this obsession just a wee bit too far. Can we just talk about the Fifty Shades baby paraphernalia? It's here. And it's kind of creepy!
Take the onesie that reads "I'm a Fifty Shades baby." It might sound all sweet and innocent, but let's fast forward about, oh, 10 years. Your 10-year-old is paging through the family album and asks "What's Fifty Shades, Mommy?"
Will you be ready to answer that one? Especially when the follow up question is "OK, but what does that kinky sex book have to do with ME?" Face. Palm.
Same goes for the "Generation Grey" onesies. That will be an odd one to explain, won't it?
There's more out there that's not so blatant. I noticed a onesie that simply reads "Fifty Shades of Cute." It's more of a pop culture nod, less an announcement that you like it rough, but still. I'm sure any little booger who gets to wear that will be all kinds of cute ... but now everyone who is looking at that little innocent child is going to be thinking "spank me, no whip me, no .... CHRISTIAN!" Really? On a baby?
I'm all for celebrating ourselves as sexual beings and happy fun when you're babymaking, but maybe you can rein it in where the actual baby is concerned. There's plenty of OTHER insanely cute stuff out there for baby already. How about you just keep your Fifty Shades of kinky in the bedroom where you can work on a sibling for that little cutie?
Would you allow your baby to wear or carry anything with a 50 Shades reference?
