To Those Who ONLY want Sons and no Daughters....

I gather from the REPLIES to this post that some of you would REALLY HATE to have a daughter.

Many of you talk about how bad girls are, well those boys you are going to bring you The dreaded Daughter iN law!!

Just something to think about.......

I'd much rather be the FAVORITE grandparent than to be the DREADED MIL.

  • lol - I didn't see anything from anyone that says they don't want daughters, and honestly, I didn't go read that link.

    I can't imagine why someone would be dead set against having either gender of child. Because frankly, as women, to not want girls is basically a form of self hatred, and to not want a son, when, again, it takes males to create a child as well (even if you go to a sperm bank, that sperm came from somewhere...), that, again, is stupid.

    If you're that bothered by it, then I can't help but wonder what other things in your kids life that will "be a disappointment" or not, and that maybe they aren't really emotionally ready to be a parent...

  • Yeah, I don't really care either. I didn't want a daughter either and didn't have one. But oh well who really cares?

  • I have 4 sons. I wanted all sons before I had children but had I had all girls or a mix of boys and girls I would have been fine with it and would have loved daughters just as much as sons. As a matter of fact, my 3rd child WAS a girl and I was thrilled. Sadly, she was stillborn when I was 6 mos. along which was devastating. After that all that mattered was having a healthy child. As it happened, after my 4th son was born I had to have my tubes tied due to health issues so I only had sons. I am just a mom who was meant to raise sons. Mothers of sons have the job of raising boys in to strong, loving and kind males. I have done that. My oldest is married and his wife is always commenting on what a wonderful husband he is and has thanked us for raising him to be how he is. My other 3 sons have always treated their girlfriends with respect. I have done my job well and really, that's all that matters to me.

  • BTW, I love being a MOBO (mom of boys only). I have amazing sons who I am very close to & I wouldn't change that. I never felt sad that I didn't have a daughter because the with sons you still get to have daughters when your sons marry. I have a very close relationship with my 23yo's wife and she calls me mom. I am very close to my 22 and 19yo's girlfriends as well and my 18yo's ex-gf and I are still close even though they are no longer together (they dated for 2 years and I am like a 2nd mom to her). She calls me mom and we still go tout and do things together. I also have a "heart daughter" who is now 24 and who I have known since she was 14 years old and became friends with my sons. She calls me mom & her 6yo daughter calls me grandma. I just wanted all sons from the time I wanted children. Not because I hate females but because being a MOBO just seemed right. It was just meant to be this way.
