I've been asked this question a lot.

If you have a child, would you prefer a boy or a girl?

I have one of each and quite honestly I love them both dearly, but boys are hell to raise as compared to girls. There is nothing like the relationship between a father and a son, however there is nothing closer than the relationship of father and a daughter. So I guess my answer is whatever comes along be thankful they are healthy and happy. Makes no difference. Now I have totally messed you all up, exactly like a politician

That was exactly my answer. A healthy child is all I ever hoped for, which is why we didn't want to know what the sex of the child was until birth.

In my mind, one of each would be cool  Smile

I agree whole heartedly with that. When my youngest sister was born (my dad wasn't blessed with any sons), my grandparents (dad's side) went to my mom and said "You must be disappointed, huh?" My mom said she cried for weeks about it. I will love my kids no matter whether they are boy or girl.

I don't know that I would want to have a kid really. Sometimes, seeing the state that the world is in...I'm afraid that any child I have might be part of the grief.

Plus, after going to Riddle I don't know that I'd EVER have money to have one.  Wink

Exactly the answer I gave friends and family 13 year ago when we were expecting Miranda. Simply didn't care as long as the child was healthy.

I want both. I want the boy first so that I can ensure that my name lives on, and so that if I have a daughter she will have someone to protect her.

10 and 10 is the first concern. That being said I wanted a girl, and got a boy. I wouldn't trade him for all the gold in Ft. Knox. I then got really lucky a few years after that and got my girl. They both have their issues; but the boy is on the honor roll and the girl is getting rave reviews in pre-k.

Me, I would prefer an older girl x 2(twins!) and a younger boy. Although I like the way AndesSMF is doing things.

I don't think I'd like only 1 sex of kids. Who knows...

My wife and my son are very close as I am with my daughter. I think that women tend to have a soft spot for the boys, as they know what the girls can get up too. Whereas men have the soft spot for their daughters, same reason as the girls

Last time I said to my fiancée that I wanted 12 children like my great grandparents had. I was joking but I tried to be serious... Her reaction:  Wow!

Just this last weekend a close relative of mine lost a child in childbirth, yes in this 7th year of the 21st century this still happens.
I am 700 miles away and have had some difficult days, I still cannot imagine what this must be like for the parents...

Be grateful for the healthy ones.. and treasure the special ones!!

FWIW. my experience was just the opposite. Daughter was no problem whatsoever, and son has been a challenge.

Look at it this way - if you have a daughter, you don't have to worry about being a role model, when she becomes a teenager she will hate and fight with her mother for no good reason (very entertaining, I might add), and little girls always love their dad.
