.... and puppy-dogs' tails, that's what little boys are made of... or so the saying goes.
Though I know my husband absolutely can't stand slugs, especially as the gardens attract slugs and my husband likes to walk barefoot outside... When he comes inside with a certain expression (just ate a lemon look), I know he stepped on a slug. Ewww.
When we shared the gender reveal party news (BOY!) on Facebook, I was surprised when quite a few people responded with, "Boys are so much easier!"
One of our friends explained it this way, "Boys break things, but Girls are more expensive."
Though someone else pointedly disagreed, "Boys are expensive too, because they like computer games when they get older. Boys and their toys."
Then again, these days, Girls are equally hooked on those expense computer games and phones too!
My cousin texted this to me: "If you can stop boys from fulfilling their biological need to maim themselves as preschoolers then they usually bond well with both parents. Girls (not all) tend to battle more with their mothers as they try to stretch their wings. Boys are physical work, Girls are mental work."
Either way, Boy or Girl, children are precious.
I was just curious as to the repeated "boys are so much easier" comment.
