I have a friend who has two girls. I know she is jealous of her sister who has two boys. We have had discussions about it. THis was before I had my two boys of course.
ANyway she said the same thing that her girls would get oooohs and aaaahs when they were little and now that they are older, nothing.
I think it is the bows and clothes. I really do. Not that they are girls necessarily. Think about it, boy baby clothes are cute but pretty tame. Girl baby clothes are covered in ruffles and ribbon roses . The maryjane shoes are beyond cute. Then let's mention the adorable HUGE bow in their hair. Who wouldn't think they were gorgeous ? It reminds us moms of our babydoll days. But after 5t the girls are in jeans and t-shirts like the boys and then the playing field is more equal.
Let's really be honest here . Haven't you seen the toddler or baby girl slathered in pink and bows and though how cute she was? . You tell the mom how adorable. Then you really look at her and most of the time she is actually rather plain or sometimes not cute at all. But at first glance.......
I know when my son was in preschool I would have gd seeing all the girls in their cute outfits. But now that he is five the girls are in jeans and Hannah Montana t-shirts. Now I see my sons gorgeous thick hair and beautiful coloring next to the girls with fine thin hair that is falling out of their hairclips and I really don't have GD moments anymore. Not to mention the girls are now in the snotty phase. Waiting for that phase to end. lol
More than I care to think about due to blood clotting disorder.
TBM failure . What a miserable experience!
And two Microsort failures . But at least we went to DIsneyland. Woo Hoo
