Why does it matter if it's a boy or girl?

What difference does it really make? Why do you want--or would prefer--one over the other?

There are lots of reasons people prefer a certain gender.

That's why I am asking. I never cared either way because my child is my child. But I am wondering for moms with more than one kid if it's in the experience itself--like, is the boy experience harder than girls etc.

I always wanted at least one girl. Probably because I'm the third generation only daughter. So I have a fourth generation only daughter. I love having boys too.

I have no idea. I have two boys and have no preference at all for our next one.

Children are so much more than their gender.

Well I preferred girls because I'm a girl and I know all there is to know about girls, so I assumed that would make raising one easier. Plus I just like girly stuff like doing their hair and buying cute outfits and pretty dresses and all that. I didn't want a boy because I just thought I wouldn't know what to do with one. I didn't want to buy ugly boy clothes and stupid boy toys like cars and trucks and trains and didn't want to deal with sports and all that. I ended up having a boy with my third though and I can't believe I didn't want one before. I love this boy to pieces and everything about him.

Because there ARE gender roles, differences, and stereotypes established in our culture. It is fun to experience those roles with both genders.
