For those who have boys and girls that are still in elementry.. Who do you think are easier to get ready in the morning.. BOYS OR GIRLS. We have 3.. My two nieces and my son that go to school.. I pick out my sons clothes. He eats brushes his teeth.. Gets dressed then watches cartoons until time to go.. On the other hand the girls have to be told repeatly what to do.. And they always gripe about their clothing choice... Usually only having minutes to spare before having to leave for school
my son gets ready for kindergarden and my 4 year old daughter is getting ready for preschool at the same time....he is 100% easier than she is. i can lay his clothes in the bathroom and he comes out ready. his school provides breakfast so i don't have to do that. she screams and i have to fight with her to get out of bed, get dressed, and on and on. it's awful most days she goes w/o her hair or her teeth brushed b/c she acts up so bad....he is soooo much easier.

i don't know. My son who is in first grade is the easiest in the morning. I don't have to tell him to do anything at all. He wakes up, puts on the clothes we laid out the night before, goes downstairs and gets breakfast from my sister in law or husband, brushes teeth and plays till time to go. My daughters in preschool are another story. They take SUCH a long time getting ready and the "i can do it myself" phrase is mentioned many times. The babies just stay in the gated living room watching baby einstien or sesame street till all the older kids are ready.
It's pretty relaxed at my house; we do a lot of the changing and eating in the living room in front of Cyberchase. So both the older kids are pretty easy. It will be different when they really need some privacy.
The one argument we have frequently is that Brian wants to wear jeans every day, and isn't allowed on gym days. So we have the whole "other kids do it" argument once or twice a week.
