I have several friends who have sons but no daughters. Once, many years ago, a friend with two sons was visiting. She saw The Princess playing with her Barbie dolls and commented wistfully that she never got to play with Barbies because she didn't have a daughter. As my friend was leaving, The 5 year old Princess came out and solemnly handed my friend a Barbie doll. She said, "Every girl should have a Barbie."
Having a daughter is wonderful...it's playing Barbies and braiding hair and painting nails. It's giggling together and watching the Miss America pageant and bonding over chocolate.
I love my son too...but boys are just different.
Boys love slimy, stinky creatures.
The smellier and slimier the better.
And boys can turn ANYTHING into a gun.
My son has never, ever, EVER jumped into the lake to go skiing and exclaimed, "Mom, DON'T take my picture! My hair is DISGUSTING today!!"
Oh yeah, that's definitely a girl thing.
