Mazal Tov

Spoucy actually wouldn't bring her home if she didn't get a pink outfit. Can you believe that?
Me: OK I'll bring the white sweater set that chasidyingele wore to his bris, and you can go shopping and buy the pink stuff later.
Spoucy: WHAT, WHITE? you're kidding me right?
Me: No, I mean you do wanna get chasidmaydele home, right? So use the white and I'll put the infant car seat and...
Me: Why not?
Spoucy: (rolling eyes)You don't understand, she's a girl.
Me: Yeah, and so?
Spoucy: Girls wear pink.
Me: But its just to get home.
Spoucy: Not my baby.
Me: Trust me, she wont remember.
Spousy: No.
Are male and female children that different? I think the only thing I found so far is the diaper changing, its a little more difficult cleaning a female after a big poopoo. Otherwise they both think the universe centers around them, especially at 3am. My wife says wiat till the kid is 3 then I'll see that girls have a way of wrapping daddy 'round their little finger.
Hummmm..... we'll see.
Anyway in case you wanted to know, the kid did get home, and yes in pink, long story.

Mazel tov! Love should be color blind, no? :-)

Sarachka said...

Adorable! Mazal Tov!!! May your little bundle of pink bring you much Nachas![and girls really do have a way of manipulating their dads- and everyone else for that matter, I speak from experience;-)]

It's All Good Now said...

Mazel tov on your newest little(?) bundle of joy. It is most definitely NOT easier to clean a girl's pamper. My daughters never sprayed me in the face, courtesy of their little you-know-whats.
As for the pink vs. blue, you may be sure that the older they get, the more apparent the differences will become. Personally, I find that it is much less taxing to parents boys. Anyone disagree?

Sarachka said...

Yup- I do, girls are more pleasant and less roudy. Any arguements defending your side? ;)

yingerman said...

Thanx everbodee many happy returns!
I noticed the 'froen' agree with the pink, and 'da mener' are the same boat as myself, regarding the pink.

I'll agree with the fact that boys are easier, for lotsa reasons, in long run anyway.
Maydelech are more demanding than boys in regards to clothing food and general habits.
Yes boys are more prone to hurt themselves and the furniture, but over the years boys spend less time at home and ask for much less than girls.
I also find its easier to reason with males old and young.
And the diaper change? true 1 of my boys insisted on spraying everyone who open his diaper ,parents, babysitter, the doctor, the mohel even the rebbe who was his sandek. (to their credit neither flinched)
I was refering to a (ahem)(whispered mumble - a poop) uh its harder [more akward?] to clean a girl.

regarding the overall raising? the girls are easier 'till age 7-8 then the boys begin to attend yeshiva for 7 hours and the girls begin to notice their friends headbands, shoes, hairstyle, coats, jewelery, outfits, brand of backpack, book covers, nosh, gadgets, ..........

A Heimishe said...

"People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one."

yingerman said...

You should know its harder to watch a loved one in pain then to be in pain yourself, knowing there is absolutely nothing you can do 'bout it.
