Are you still planning on trying to have another of the lone gender?
Do you think it's a big deal for that child not to have a brother/sister to grow up with?
Not at all. Think of all the pigeon pair families (like mine)...I am perfectly happy not having a sister and I wouldn't trade my brother for anything in the world.
If you only have one girl is she, or do you think she will be, more of a tomboy?
I'm not sure...my mom is VERY girly and I'm just not. I think it more depends on the kid's personality.
And if you only have one boy is he, or do you think he will be, kind of girlie?
My cousin has 2 girls and 1 boy and he is the most boyish boy I have ever met. My uncle is the only boy with 2 sisters, as well, and he is not at all girly.
If your lone gendered child is older how do they feel about not having a brother/sister and being the only one?
I asked my uncle, and he said that sometimes when he was little he wished he had a brother, but that the feeling kind of went away as he got older and he was never really bothered by it. He said "it was kind of like wishing I had a pony or a superhero best friend. I It sounded cool at the time, but I didn't really need it."
Does that child play with their siblings well, or are they always alone?
In my case, the boys never leave her alone. My cousin's kids all play well together.
Does that child have a lot of same gendered cousins or friends they play with?
All of our kids play together, regardless of gender. I can't think of a time when just the girls played or just the boys played, kwim?
Do the other siblings feel like that child is favored or treated special because they are the only boy/girl?
I don't think so. I mean, everyone was excited that dd was a girl, but she doesn't get favored more than a boy would have.
Do you like the way your family makeup is?
I love it. Wouldn't have it any other way.
Do people comment a lot on your family gender ratio, if yes are the comments good or bad?
Yep. So far that's been the only downside...the stupid comments people make. But they would've been there had dd been another boy, so I guess there's no escaping it.
