Joseph’s nursery also needed a make-over to reflect his gender. So the walls are no longer pink, but a pale blue. And they now feature Sully and Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc. There’s also a plaque in honor of the local soccer team, Newcastle United. “The nursery is now redecorated with a Monsters Inc. theme, so we think Joseph will prefer that to a pink room,” Sharples stated.
It wasn’t just the nursery and name that needed changing, however, but also all the pink products that the couple had purchased. These needed to be exchanged for less girly toys and clothing for baby Joseph. Since they had spent such a large amount on the pink baby items, the couple needed to get their money back so they could buy everything they needed for Joseph.
