hi mom2boys,
i'm a mum of 2 boys too..am I'm lovin' it cos there is no need to get any clothings and toys for the younger one...everything is handme down from the elder bro...save more $$ for enrichment. :lol: they have similar interest (pushing cars/kicking ball around the house screaming) and I have no daughters to distract my husband's attention away from me. :lol:
welcome. :)
Chiefkiasu...daughters are usually closer to mummies after marriage...that we as parents of only boys tends to lose out. but then again, 2 sets of daughters-in-laws is good cos if one DIL, she may likely be sensitive and complain her IL (ie me) bias towards her SIL (ie supposedly if I have a daughter... :roll: )

Yuh hor... jedamum... Singaporean daddies are normally closer to their daughters because they cannot bear to scold such lovely things :). One smile and his heart melt away - doesn't matter how naughty she has been.

I also forgot these days DILs are the queens of the households! I know of mothers who are dead frightened of their DILs not being happy with them.

I agree totally...but sometimes cos no daughter to distract my husband, so he also need attention from his wife plus the 2 little boys...you can imagine..furthermore I"m staying with my MIL...so basically my weekends are tight, :P
and from my friend's feedback, girls tend to be more independent from mom, will read books, do crafts and closer to family once married..boys...errr still early to say...hopefully my future DILs will not be queens of the households :oops:
then again, having headaches to find enrichments class for boys...

YO! I'm living with ILs too...and on the contrary, that frees up our Sundays that might otherwise be use for visiting them.

what enrichment is your boy having currently?

ChiefKS, besides being lovely young things, if the daughter is a splitting image of the mum, all the more the daddy will treasure cos the daughter will eventually grow to look like the mum whom the dad fell madly in love with. Besides, it'll be a 'bonus' that he can 'rule' over the 'miniature-wify-look-alike' ('because Daddy says so!') when he can't outtalk the real McCoy (aka wify) in real life! :lol:

My pair of children has an age gap of 6 years old :) So when the ke ke is in P6, the mei mei will be in P1. Certainly not ideal... but it's the will of the heavens.

hi mummytofengkai, my two boys' age gap is 4 as well :) that makes caring of the younger one easier as the older one is sensible enough to not demand my attention all the time.
