Re: How do you deal with gender dissapointment?

It was hard for me to hear that baby #2 is a girl, as is my oldest. I wanted a boy so badly, and really thought that she was a boy. It took a while to get over. The main reason is, at this point, I'm too scared to go for #3 in case it is another girl - I don't really want 3 girls, but I don't know if I'll be ok with stopping at 2. I don't think I'm over it yet, but I am excited to see what it's like having sister - I only have 1 brother. I keep trying to find the fun stuff, the benefits, like sharing clothes and toys and doing things that same gender may enjoy. We'll see what happens.
