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!
Listen, my daughter is a pistol and she gives me a run for my money every. single. day. and i'm sure she is just as much work, if not more, than a boy. But I still want a boy one day, and I don't think my daughter is over-rated at all. She is THE most beautiful thing I've ever laid my eyes on. And if she's even a bit dramatic, she got it from me. So whoever that mama was, probably has no clue what she was like as a kid.
Hahhahaahah! Girls are tough...well mine is but she's my best friend! And SO much fun. And boys are tough too. That lady who's daughter is too much for her...she's probably a B therefore her daughter is too...oops did I say that. Chloe does alot that I don't do and don't understand but she is def a spitting image of myself.
Girls are sassy and quick to roll eyes but I will deal with that 6 days out the week just to have us match and paint our nails together on the 7th day!
I also think as parents who have both it's easy to compare. Ex Jr is my angel baby, Chloe's the devil. Doesn't mean it's like that for everyone.
as a daughter, i see the difference in the relationships between sons and daughters with their parents. Both are so special and different. I can't see how you wouldn't want both. That lady at starbucks will be happy she had a girl on day and hopefully realizes that no matter the sex of the child a relationship between the a parent and child can never be overrated.
