Girls Vs. Boys

We have been very blessed with 4 happy, healthy children. 3 boys. 1 girl. I have long heard the debate of who is easier to raise, girls or boys. It is always funny to hear people's reasonings behind why they choose the way they do! 

Our boys are rough. They wrestle, they fight, they break stuff. Oddly enough, that stuff doesn't bother me. I go by the "Boys will be boys" motto and just shrug it off. I can handle a few bumps and bruises from kids running into furniture. But girls. Boy are they a different story.

I love my daughter. She is definitely a Daddy's girl. But is it just me or are girls really really tough to understand?! At only 7 years old, she has meltdowns like I have never seen before. At least 5 times a day her entire world comes crashing down over some little thing that someone else did or said. I have never seen the drama in my boys that I get out of her. Hands on the hips, swinging her ponytail back and forth. Screaming and stomping her feet. And the worst is when she looks you right in the eye and says "You are the worst parents in the world!" Of course she always comes back and says she is sorry but wow! The mood swings are unreal!!!

Am I the only Dad in the world who has a daughter like this?! Who do you say is easier to raise?! Boys or girls?


  1. My daughter is 4 months old and she has meltdowns. My son is 15 months old and so if I run in another room and leave the two of them in the same room and hear a scream I think the worse and every time I run in wondering what toy my 15 month old son threw at her or how he toppled her over in the exersaucer, it is always something totally easily fixable and having nothing to do with her brother such as she can't reach the toy she wants. I was hoping she grew out of it but looks like we have a lot of years of screamin ahead of us. :)

    Thanks for keeping your blog interesting! I enjoy it!

  2. I have three boys now i am 27 and have been trying to have a girl since i was 19! I have babysitted plenty of girls before. I think the boys are more rough and tough whereas the girls are more sensitive and needy. I keep telling myself that is why i keep getting sons ;) even though im ready to buy pink stuff!
