I have two girls and couldn't be happier. I honestly never really wanted a boy. My girls are now 12 and almost 15, and they are just really awesome kids. Everyone keeps telling me to "just wait" but they have been saying that for years. We've never had drama or anything like that. They are smart, funny and just my favorite people to be around. I wouldn't have it any other way.

We had three girls and picked up a 16 year old stray when our youngest was 15.

It was not a big deal. The three girls and later the stray stuck together as if they were glued.

Wife was a Bellevue trained RN and was considered by the teenagers the expert on all things woman. And she was pretty good. Also cool enough to deal with the teen who decided she was pregnant. The house was filled with females all the time. Even the two cats were females.

I learned to play the role of concerned or difficult male.

Sadness hit when the youngest was 17. Spouse suddenly passed away. Left me alone to try and run a house full of women. Then later I started to date. Ever bring a women to the home of four women in their early 20s to late teens?

Interesting creatures are the ladies. But it can be a bit of a drag. We won't go there though.

Your children are people, not just a gender.

My son takes after me. He is sensitive, emotional, artistic, dramatic, wears his heart on his sleeve, feels deeply, and is passionate. He is not super into sports.

My daughter takes after my engineer husband. She is even keeled, pragmatic, organized, saves her money, is deliberate, slow to anger, and athletic.

You can't just say how someone will be because of their gender.
