  • Before my son was born I would've said girls... been around girls my whole life and never boys (i have 3 sisters) and my two girls were pretty easy and just what I expected. Now I would say my son has been the easiest kid ever, he is only 3 so that might change but really he was a GREAT baby, he potty trained almost overnight, he is just so mellow and LOVING and is a total mama's boy :D But that might just be HIM and not boys in general...

  • Both have their ups and downs. I have one of each. My DD was extramly hard from birth to 1. My DS was easy from birth to 2. My DD was easy from 1-3. By DS was a pain in the @$$ from 2-3. Now my DD is 4 almost 5 and she has a huge attitude on her.

  • Each kid is different and unique. Sometimes boys are easy and other times girls are easy. It flip-flops between my 2 kids, i have a dd and a ds.

  • Boys

    I have 4 boys, 2 of whom are now adults. I have also helped with my nieces. When I was pregnant with my 3 year old I my DH said he hoped it was a girl. I looked at him and said "Are you crazy? Have you met my nieces?" He said "Good point."

  • having one of both it really depends. In some ways my boy is easier and in some ways my daughter is easier. I also think it depends on the personalities of the children.

  • From what I've heard girls are easier up to tween age, boys are easier after that.

    I say that my nieces have been practicing PMS since they were toddlers and now that they are teenagers, they have it perfected.
