I have a niece who recently turned four at the beginning of the year she decided she was boy and renamed herself Bob (after Bob the Builder). Her older sister who is eight and very much a girly girl cut her hair short for her and she refused to wear any skirts or dresses or anything that is pink or purple as they are for girls. Her mum has gotten her some boys clothes as hand me downs from friends and if you didn’t know otherwise some days you’d think she was a boy. It’s funny as she still answers to her real name as well as Bob, how much of a boy she is depends on how she’s feeling. Apparently her mum did a similar thing and is now very girly so we’ll see how long it lasts.
