My children are all girls. A couple of years ago, I never imagined that my husband and I would have all girls. However, with three daughters already and one last child on the way, there is a real possibility that we will not have any sons. I guess that would not be all bad. In fact, I think there have been some real advantages to having all girls thus far. For one, our daughters have been able to pass down old clothes to be worn by the younger sisters. Although I would anticipate that this will not likely continue as our daughters get older, at least while they are small and do not really mind, it saves both money and aggravation to not have to buy full separate wardrobes for each of our daughters.
We have been able to focus our shopping on girls clothes stores or departments, which seem to have more options than the boys sections anyway. Many of our friends warn that in due time – probably as our daughters reach their teenage years, they will each become more demanding about the clothes that they wear and rebel against the concept of hand-me-downs. These warnings don’t really bother me or my husband. We figure that we will just take life as it comes.
