  • It's not crazy. When I was having my 3rd I desperately wanted a little girl, and I did get one; but again when I had my 4th I really wanted a little girl and I ended up with a boy - whom I love more than anything!!! But I still find myself fingering the little girl dresses at the store, or looking at the pink baby blankets, etc.
    Just enjoy your friends little girl and remind yourself how lucky you are to have 4 perfect little boys - and you can look forward to the day that you will have daughter in laws.

  • No, it's perfectly normal. You can love your sons and still grieve for a daughter. It's not crazy at all. You feel like you are missing out on something, and you're at a point where it seems likely that you will never have it. Maybe your boys will give you a boat-load of granddaughters!

  • Nope!! Not crazy at all!! I love my boys and wouldn't trade any of them for a girl, but as a child I always pictured myself with daughters, not sons. Every time I see a baby girl I am very jealous!! Truth is, I wouldn't know what to do with a little girl! All that pink and drama!! Still, I hope for granddaughters one day!

  • I have all boys and can't imagine having a girl. When I see someone with a girl, I think "better them than me."
