sons and daughters

My sis-in-law (hubby's sis) has successfully delivered a son, after 2 daughters. Age was on her side when she decided to try for a boy. It seems to be the season for baby boys now as my colleague delivered a boy after 2 girls.

This makes me wonder, what if the 2 mothers already have 2 sons, would they try for a girl?
To me, it is a family's loss if it has no daughter. The son is merely for carrying down the family name , if one is a chinese. But a daughter will be there for you (at least I hope mine will be) even after she is married. A son will be yours until he gets married. ( that should be the way?)

Correct me if I am wrong?

    Agreed. I'd LOVE to have girls! That being said, although I have two boys and age is on my side...I'm still too chicken to try for a girl. Because it's all 50-50.... it goes either way!!!!!!! Although each child is a blessing no matter the sex...I'd definitely pengsan if it's another boy!

  • No kids. No comments.

    Then again, if you're lucky enough to get healthy children, you should just be grateful.

  • The general consensus is that it's better to give birth to a piece of cha siew than baby boys or girls. :D

  • My sisters and I are all very close to our mum. Our husbands get along well with her and love her but like my husband always say, "Your mum is a wonderful lady."
    My brother's wife is also very closed to my mum and whenevern my mum stays with her when she is on holidays with them (sometimes up to 6 weeks), my sister-in-law always cares for her like her own and dotes on my mum.
    I think it is all a matter of what one's daughter-in-law is like, how one's daughter is going to turn out and lastly, what we are as mothers and mothers-in-law. There is no knowing. :)

  • I disagree.
    Whether boy or girl, it really depends on their character whether they are close to their parents.
    That is excluding a 'special kid', a kid that had chosen the wrong path, a kid that had runaway from home at age of 12, ....

    It is a 50-50 chance that it will fall into the category of MR william 'char siu' problem
