Boys vs. Girls

Millie, Badly Drawn Mum

Whenever I mention that we have one of each, people always say “Wow, girls and boys are SO different, right?” and quote that rhyme about ‘slugs and snails and puppy dogs’ tails’.

I’ve never really been sure about the distinction to be honest. Evie’s a real tomboy and yes, she can be ‘all things nice’ but after watching her slurp her way through a bowl of tomato soup as Tom daintily nibbles his bread and butter, I sometimes think it’s the other way round.

Tom had his friend Albert around to play this afternoon. They had a merry old time taking ALL the saucepans out of the cupboard, banging them, dropping them on the floor. Noise and mess. They were in their element. Evie then walked in on the scene of destruction, chewed her lip thoughtfully and spent the next five minutes putting them carefully away again, humming softly to herself. No better example of girls preferring order. Perhaps there is truth in the old rhyme.
