Congratulations on the future bundle of joy, I wish that I could tell you something about raising girls but after four boy's it wasn't meant to be. My son's are my world, but as they get older they become men and grow away from being Daddy's little boy . But a daughter is always her Daddy's little girl,and that my friend is why I will en vie you. No matter, girl or boy, they will change your life forever, some times you may think, it is not worth it , yes it is, are you going to have all the answer's, no, but that's the journey, and this is what your going on. I ask you for one thing my friend, tell me how it feel's when you have that first dance with her at the father/ daughter dance, I just got to know.

When she gets to about 9, all you can do is put her in a closet, lock the door and run!Go back in and get her when she's 28. It's your only hope!
Is that what your parents did to you?

I did not read anyone elses advice but I ma sure it is all good.

I have 2 girls 12 and 14. They were great. They have different personalities so raising them has been different. But it was easy up until puberty started. Now I have to crack down. They are great and a blessing. My advice is learn their personality God gives them and adjust as needed. Raising boys is something I know nothing about so I can't compare it. God bless and congratulations.

Having girls is God's little way of saying "payback's a beach". Now you get to worry what those boys are thinking when they get into highschool! Believe me! I have two daughters. One is just getting ready to turn 13 going on 30.

I have a boy 6 and a girl 12.. Although each child is different here's what I noticed. As an infant my son was way more calmer!! As as toddler he was less fussy. However school age my daughter is more on task and focused than he was. On the flip side she is soooo freakin emotional he does not fuss about the little things like she does!!!! Girls are more close to Daddy!! Girls are way more $$$$..Either way good luck!!

Thanks for all the input everyone. Really some great stuff and makes me feel a bit less intimidated about parenting a daughter!
