One of Each, a girl and a boy, how perfect….
Well it’s is actually pretty great, you do get the best of both worlds-but it’s also like having two only children.
No hand me downs, no common interests, but just as many fights. And I can’t parent them the same way because what works for one most definitely doesn’t work for the other (although this could be common for anyone with more than one)
Mine are 3 and a half years apart, which has been pretty great. Now they are getting older (8 and 11) they are pretty independent and the majority of the time my life is a shit load easier than a couple years ago!
But we can’t go and see a family movie together or do almost any activity without one or both bitching! She still loves cartoons and everything girly and he likes killing shit on his Playstation and that movie hasn’t come out yet.
I sometimes daydream of having two of the same sex, they would be friends and play together-but I’m guessing my reality would probably be pretty much the same? I sure as hell didn’t play with my sister’s or even like them until they were grown.
