I have thought of that many times. If I did have a girl and she ended up hating pink and refusing to take ballet lessons, I would be sad. I never really had any expectations of my boys like that. If they want to play sports or are computer nerds, whatever. As long as they grow to be respectful, caring gentlemen. I was a little bummed when they chose red and blue over green and orange. Ha. The whole dream with having a daughter to dance ballet like I did, wear pink glittery frills and pick out fabulous prom dresses before getting our hair and nails done, may not happen anyway. Maybe she'll be a tomboy and reject all that and just want to play soccer, hate nail polish and want short hair. (and actually my ODS loves pink, too)
I have 3 older brothers. My parents planned to have 4 kids or a girl, whichever came first. I was obviously "longed for". After my teen years my mom told me that raising my 3 brothers combined was easier than raising me.
