I'm 26 weeks pregnant and I have a son already, I wanted a girl my whole life. Due to high risk pregnancies and wanting to homeschool we decided we aren't having any more.
I prayed and prayed that this was a girl, I wanted a little girl to dress up, do her hair, etc.
I found out this is a boy...
I am actually excited! I realized that I won't have to deal with a prissy little girl, periods, matted up hair, etc. I'll be able to take my boss camping without hearing how gross the bugs are! Call me crazy but I'm ecstatic!!!
I think it varies by child. In your experience, my children are like that too. Well, my 4 year old doesn't have a horrible attitude, but she is a little wild at times. She just has so much energy and wants to know everything about everything. My son is so laid back and easy-going.
However, the opposite is true for my nieces/nephews. My nephews are freaking crazy and are allowed to throw all sorts of temper tantrums, even at 3 and 5 years old! Everything is done THEIR way, with WHATEVER they want! They are VERY hard to be around. :(
That's how my nieces are, they hate getting dirty and they have horrible attitudes. My nephews are more laid back and easy going.
This all just sounds like a bunch of gender stereotypes to make you feel better.
