I know that the Nutri-Grain idea is a bit of a scream... forgot to mention that my son won't eat the stuff to this day - he has all sorts of weird thoughts attached to it!! Just kidding. My number three (two year old boy) as I mentioned before, is still slowly training, and we're not quite ready for standing up wees yet, so the Nutrigrain is in the cupboard for a while yet. Just be prepared girls, your husbands will want to have a go too. As far as boys being totally different creatures - My experience says yes! I have four kids - boy (9), girl(5), boy(2), boy (3 mths). My daughter is a total girly girl - she has more shoes and handbags than me. My boys have been much more on the go and full-on than my daughter, but my 2 year old is not as 'rough' as my first was. Even though there are general differences, all children have different temperaments. There is every chance of having a full-on, rough-and-tumble girl, too! The best advice I have for Mums of boys is to be consistent with everything, no matter how tiring. Set good boundaries early on and stick to your rules. This really pays off in the long run and the child doesn't get as confused because they know what is expected of them and the rules don't change. I have also been aware of the important role my husband plays in being my son's model. Studies say that a child will emulate 80% of their traits from the same-sex parent (in a situation where there are two), so keep Dad's (if you can) accountable and involved. boys are great fun and good company. They are funny and smart and will keep you fit.....all the best for your boy experience! now you just have to get changing boy's nappies down pat...all those bits to clean!!!
