On Mommalogues this week we were asked to share if we thought boys or girls are easier to raise, and while obviously all children in the whole wide world are different and I’m only dealing with three of them…I can say from my own experience GIRLS ARE EASIER!
My kids are still young, so I hope what they say about boys being easier as teens holds true. As it is, my two girls are perfectly trained little poodles.
My son? I love him more than anything, but I have referred to him as an untrained Great Dane. Lovable as all get out, but he will chew your couch up if you’re not paying attention. Just a little more difficult to whip into shape.
In addition to that, my Great Dane will run right into oncoming traffic. It’s not even that he’s not fearful or particularly brave, it’s more that he’s just completely clueless that he can actually be killed if he’s not careful.
So my answer to that questions was easy. Girls are easier because I don’t have to work nearly as hard at keeping them alive. Let’s see how the other moms weigh in!:
