Boys vs Girls

"Equal" is not always synonymous with "the same." Men and women are created equal, but boys and girls are not born the same.

You throw a little girl a ball, and it will hit her in the nose. You throw a little boy a ball, and he will try to catch it. Then it will hit him in the nose.

You dress your little girl in her Easter Sunday best, and she'll look just as pretty when you finally make it to church an hour later. You dress a boy in his Easter Sunday best, and he'll somehow find every mud puddle from your home to the church, even if you're driving there.

Boys' rooms are usually messy. Girls' rooms are usually messy, except it's a good smelling mess.

A baby girl will pick up a stick and look in wonderment at what nature has made. A baby boy will pick up a stick and turn it into a gun.

When girls play with Barbie and Ken dolls, they like to dress them up and play house with them. When boys play with Barbie and Ken dolls, they like to tear off their appendages.

Boys couldn't care less if their hair is unruly. If their bangs got cut a quarter-inch too short, girls would rather lock themselves in their room for two weeks than be seen in public.

Baby girls find mommy's makeup and almost instinctively start painting their face. Baby boys find mommy's makeup and almost instinctively start painting the walls.

If a girl accidentally burps, she will be embarrassed. If a boy accidentally burps, he will follow it with a dozen fake belches.

Girls are attracted to boys, even at an early age. At an early age, boys are attracted to dirt.

By the age of 6, boys will stop giving their dad kisses. By the age of 6, girls will stop giving their dad kisses unless he bribes them with candy.

Most baby girls talk before boys do. Before boys talk, they learn how to make machine-gun noises.

Girls will cry if someone dies in a movie. Boys will cry if you turn off the VCR after they've watched "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie three times in a row.

Girls turn into women. Boys turn into bigger boys.


  1. This is a funny truth! LOL

  2. yeah, boys will always be boys. it's only their age that differs.

  3. LOL. Some of those are dead-on! However, I shared a bedroom with 3 sisterdears growing up. ANd 4 brothers shared a bedroom. I don't think either room had especially good-smelling messes. Just saying.

    Big '32 days to the Caribbean' hugs :]

  4. I'm definitely a man now.
    I just don't wanna lose the boy in me.

  5. I'm laughing over this one... so true, so true!

    Hope all is well with you two lovebirds...

  6. Makes me so glad my first one was a baby girl. I am better prepared for the next one, which we hope someday will be a boy.

  7. Big boys are serious about their career. Big girls are serious about hooking big boys!
    have a great day!

  8. Woof! Woof! More Woofs! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. How very true, and some of us grow into very big boys!

  10. "Men are only boys grown tall,
    They don't change much after all"...

  11. That is all so true. But what would we do if the men didn't remain being boys. That is why us women have to be the strong ones. LOL.
    Great subject. Take care Sandee.

  12. I can totally relate to the 1st one. As a kid I ad poor hand eye co-ordination. I am not really much better at catching now, I still have poor hand eye co-ordination. My best sport was golf as the ball isn't moving when you hit it. I can rarely hit the ball in Wii baseball, Michelle whoops me at it every time

  13. Although I don't find this offensive, it really irks me when these absolute generalizations are made. I would say that these are true a great deal of the time, but not always. Those of us who don't fit the mold just are reinforced in our odd-ness.

  14. Oh so true!

    Wives become a replacement mother to most men. But lets be honest, husbands often become replacement fathers to women in some ways :)

  15. maybe it's just me but it sounds like boys have more fun than

  16. As the mother of one of each, I whole-heartedly agree. Except for the second to last one, which should read, "Boys will cry if you turn off the DVD player after they've watched "Transformers" the movie three times in a row." *grin*

  17. I've always wondered why the ball got bigger as it went towards my head. Then it hit me!

    Have a great sane day!

  18. Am I supposed to be seeing a problem here? *burrrp*

  19. My brother used to set GI Joe on fire. I guess he liked creating realistic battle scenes. I'd also like to add to your humorous yet poignant post: When boys grow into men, they play with more expensive toys.

  20. i agree with all of them except that my little girls rooms were not pleasant smelling! ha ha ha

    smiles, bee

  21. There's a whole lotta truths there! Brings a smile to my face.

    Big hugs, honey...

  22. Bigger boys with bigger toys! Much bigger toys.

  23. "Boys' rooms are usually messy. Girls' rooms are usually messy, except it's a good smelling mess."
    So true!
