Unless the boy plays an expensive sport, I don't see how it costs more to raise a boy than a girl. Girl clothes are so much more fun to shop for that my girls end up owning way more outfits than my boy. Plus there are all the accessories to go with each outfit. For my boy, I'm likely to buy just the top and the pants. For one of my girls, I'm likely to buy a top, a pair of pants AND a skirt, the matching socks, the matching tights, the matching headband or barrettes, etc. I just spent several hundred dollars on a sewing machine because my oldest girl is all into crafts and has outgrown her cheapie kid model. I've never had to spend that much on one of my son's hobbies. My oldest girl enjoys attending arts performances like the symphony, the opera, the ballet, etc. Those usually run $50-$90 for the two of us to go. My son is happy watching a football game on TV with his dad. The one thing I can see is the medical costs. I've had to take my son more times to the ER than both my girls together.

To me, this is the funniest line in your post! That is probably because I can relate to it personally. Anyway, congratulations on the baby. “We might not have to spend extra money on electronic gadgets because his daddy would have all the latest toys already.” To me, this is the funniest line in your post!

Now I have a son and though it is early days yet (he's only 5) I don't spend half as much on him as my friends with girls spend on their kids. Fewer clothes (I buy second-hand and he could care less about name brands), no make-up or ballet classes, no fancy dolls or wooden houses or kitchen sets or princess costumes...give my boy a stick and some dirt and he's happy as a clam. Guess it all boils down to personal choice/taste and how much you're willing to spend. We'll see what it's like in a few years - although I seriously don't forsee buying him any video game consoles or anything...great last words!

The one thing that my brother has cost my parents much more than any of us girls is in medical related expenses. He's probably been in the ER more times than his age. Half of the time his accidents are from stunts gone wrong. Like the time he crashed into a car and the bike handle hit his collar bone and broke it. Or the time he was fooling around with a used parachute in 70mph winds and somehow it involved a sheet of plywood? Don't ask me, he ended up with a very badly sprained wrist and some stitches. Then there was another time he was playing with the little fuel packs for home-launched rockets and set it on fire. The explosion burned his hand and he had to have daily bandage changes for his fingers for several weeks. Also my brother was more destructive than any of us girls. He like to break things apart and see what would happen. He took a sledgehammer to a non-working TV to see what the screen shatter would look like. :P The good news is that at 20 years old, he earns more money than any of his sisters... so he can afford to pay for boo-boos! :) I’m from a family of three girls and one boy.
