    Easy! But young girls!

    Dear experts,

    What does an exclamation 'Easy! But young girls!' mean in the following sentence:

    'His son had married and gone to live in Kenya, and his grandchildren were eleven, five and two and a half and had been entertained on their last visit by football and space science talk, electric trains, and a ride on his foot. Easy! But young girls!'

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Easy! But young girls!

    I'm so glad you gave the context.

    It sounds like the man took care of his grandSONs before and found entertaining little boys easy - sports, astronauts, trains.

    Now he has to entertain little girls and he doesn't know what to do.

    But I'm guessing.
