Boys are different than girls and that is the way it is supposed to be. I gave up matching outfits by the time they were old enough to say, "I don't want to look like him." They keep their hair short so they don't have to comb it as often. I am thrilled that the pool is now open, the chlorine can get them cleaner than they clean themselves in the tub. They are rambunctious, but they just have more energy than they know what to do with, they need direction and diversions. Boys are different, but that doesn't mean they are bad. Different is good.
So before you pity me and try to keep your daughters away from my adorable and active boys remember this: your girls may sit nice and color with matching outfits and perfect hair, but someday they will get to be snotty teenage girls and then I will say "oh you have girls, so sorry."
Yes, there is a story behind this, but I am too nice to post the whole thing.
