I'm pregnant with my fourth child....but my first boy. Everyone around me makes comments about the relationship between mother and son being different to mother and daughter (and in a good way) and so special etc. Is it? When i think back to how mum's relationship was with my brother in comparison with me and my sister, i think i can see a difference.
How did you find it? Was it the same? Is it more to do with birth order rather than gender? Do you do anything differently with your son than you did with your daughter?
I hope this question makes sense, im really realllly tired and fighting flu at the moment! :(

Yes... Im sure you would say that your relationship is different with each of your girls too.
But there IS a different dynamic to a mother son realtionship. My son is almost 14. I find that he is a bit of an alpha male issue between hubs and him... though they get along GREAT and are close... there is a small tention between dad and son that is not there with the two son and me.
However, there is also an issue about hugging and kissing NOW that wasnt there before... an embarasement that isnt there with my teen daughter. But boy oh boy when he was little the sun rose and set with me... I was the woman he was going to marry... and he would tell me that. I was his everything... WAY more than my daughters.
You are truly blessed to have the joy of both daughters and a son.
