lady #1: i am trying to convince my husband to let us try for a 4th. we have 3 boys already ... he is convinced if we try again, it'll be a 4th boy ... but i want a girl!
lady with newborn: girls are overrated! they're drama and SO high maintenance.
lady #1: yeah .. so i've been told but i would still like one.
lady with newborn: i'd be happy with all boys! my oldest is a girl and she is just too much for me!
i stood there almost in shock. this is seriously like the 10th time i've heard 'girls are overrated' in the last month! i don't understand why people say it? i guess maybe it's just natural for some to try to make a person feel better by saying something negative about what they have? but i still don't get it ... i don't care if girls are overrated, i don't have one so therefore i want one.
i have two boys. and whenever anyone says [to me] i hope i have a boy - i tell them that boys are great! because they are! they love their mama's and have imaginations as big as this world we live in. are they messy, sure ... but i don't think boys are overrated by any means.
mothers of girls - you can't seriously tell me that girls aren't great? i mean ... hair bows, tutu's, sandals, PINK, painted nails ... come on?
even if i never get to have a baby girl of my own ... i will never justify it by saying they're overrated. because come on ... seriously? look how cute that below picture is. gah!
