    Knowing that you're more likely to have a closer relationship with the grandchildren she gives you - a lot of women tend to go to their OWN family for that sort of thing, rather than their in-laws... so you've kinda got that on your side, so long as your relationship with your daughter is good.

    You can also make a friend in your daughter as she grows - I would love to spend time at the movies with my mother, and being girls, we generally like the same films and stuff, so it gives me someone to watch girly flicks with.

    They're more likely to have partners you like (so long as they're hetero). I think it's easier to be wooed by your child's male partner (when you're a hetero female), than it is to be wooed by your child's female partner. I think I'd probably feel less, "That b*tch isn't good enough for my child!" than I would if she was a boy with a girlfriend.

    I have 4 DD's and there is 1 thing that they can all do well and that is throw really good tantrums

    I dont know whether anyone else on here has teenage dd's but that would have to the most testing time for any parent, my now 20yr old and 19yr olds have the worst fights over anything from clothes to makeup/hair accessories and money
    it can be very daunting having teenage dd's and I will have to go through it again with my 10 and 8 yr olds

    Sorry I stuffed that 1 up, I didn't add any nice things

    We are expecting 2 more little girls next month and I could not be more excited Ava is so excited about having 2 little sisters and it is super cute I can not wait to see how she is around them because she is very motherly and takes her favorite doll everywhere with us.

    I love the relationship we have and living half way around the world from my mum I really hope I can have the type of relationship I always had with her with all my little girls.

    Teenage years may be a little scary I am praying already that my girls are as easy as my parents had it with me.

    I love that my little girl is so affectionate and loves telling me many times a day at ant time for no particular reason that she loves me.

    I love playing dress ups with her and shopping for clothes and toys and being able to indulge my love for all things Disney that she has picked up.

    That we already have our girls nights when daddy is away to not make her go to bed and we stay up late and watch her favorite movie Aristocats.

    Decorating her room when we found out she was a girl! So much fun!

    Seeing her bond so well with DH is precious. He was actually the one that a girl while I didn't really mind I did like the idea of having a little girly girl but I grew up with a brother 8 years younger than me and saw the way he worshiped my mum and it was so cute and I didn't mind but DH got his little princess.

    We have been so blessed to have such an amazing a placid easy going little girl considering we are both rather hyperactive still but I guess having that energy will come in handy next month. She is very talkative and like a little grown up because she has grown up with more adults round her than children and people who meet her a often surprised by just how grown up she is carrying a conversation.

    I think the best thing about girls is all the gorgeous clothes to choose from and all the adorable hairstyles you can do on them (if/when they let you that is!

    i teach at a boy's school, which has given me a bit of time to think about the differences btw the sexes, some of this is a bit morbid....

    -girls often better readers and communicators at a young age
    - girls are increasingly doing better academically then boys
    - girls are more accepting of academic achievement in their peers (girls can be smart and cool at school)
    - girls less likely to be the victim of a violent attack or the perpetrator
    - girls less likely to bottle up their feelings. Have lower rates of suicide
    - girls are less likely to have drug, alcohol and gambling issues
    - girls have a better chance of playing football for australia or whatever the sport
    - girls probably relate better to their mothers
    - girls more likely to share interests with their mothers
    - girls are less likely to be autistic or dyslexic
    - girls have the option of children whatever their relationship situation
    - girls are more nurturing...?

    I love having my girls, infact just recently, I have felt that if I have anymore kids I would like them to be girls I love my girls, they're just growing up so beautifully.

    People always tell me girls are hard to raise and difficult in their teenage years but I think they're equal they just are likely to have different issues.

    But I love raising girls

    *Young girls are lovely and placid.
    *It's ok if they want to do 'boy' stuff also.
    *They will form beautiful relationships with their friends and be more 'in tune' with other people's feelings.


    I desperately wanted a boy, but am SOOOOOO glad we got a DD instead.

    Thank god for this thread!

    I hate pink, and I'm not a fan of about 90% of the girls clothes out there... so this thread has made me feel a bit better about growing a little lady
