I wish our young ones would never have to feel pain or negativity. Unfortunately, that is not reality. Your son sounds like a very mature little guy, with a very nurturing mom. BRAVO! Let us all try to guide our children to handle the "rough spots" of life - peer pressure, bullying, etc.. with strength and courage. I believe we can do this by connecting to them in some way everyday. The only reason you knew about his "pink problem" is that he felt comfortable with you, lying still there in the dark. Despite your jet lag...you took time to talk to him. In doing so, you were able to turn something negative into a positive by telling him how proud you were of him. By making kids feel loved, we make them strong enough to deal with anything.

Love it! My son also always chose pink as his favorite much to the grimaces of others, which I did not care, I always let him choose his own and just smiled! Now in the first grade, his favorite is blue! Funny how the peer pressure and even adult pressure can change your choices, but I agree with you in being free to be me! and allowing our children to choose for themselves and be their supporting them all the way! Great post girl!!!
