I have three boys almost the same ages as yours: July 07, June 09, and September 10. People ask me all the time if I'm going to keep trying until I have a girl. It drives me crazy! I was like you, I also wanted a girl when TTC #2 and 3, but I wouldn't trade my boys for anything
I have three boys, but I do have a girl also, I get lots of, "are you going to give her a sister?" I am grateful that large families are more common here, but hate that I am expected to have a certain gender. In all honesty, if we had another, of course I would want a girl a little more, but we would be happy with any baby. DD says she would rather have no more babies than to have another brother. lol
But your comment about ppl saying, "they'll all be out of the house" cracked me up. That was my friend's line, she wanted to have her kids close to together and while they were young so that they would all be out of the house while she and dh were still young. It drove me nuts! I am not having kids to "get them out of the house". And I gently reminded her that just because they are 18 does not mean they are out of the house, but for her it does, she said they'd be booted. So sad. (and she has 4 kids lol)

dd 9, ds 7, twin boys Dec 09
I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
I had someone tell me "i'm sorry" when she found out we were having boy #3--It made me so mad!! Yes, I would love another little girl someday, but I wasn't sad to have a boy! He is the sweetest thing ever! Just becasue she stopped as soon as she had her girl (2 boys and a girl at the end) and doesn't want more, doesn't mean I don't want more! Honestly, it's my little girl who is going to give me more gray hair than any of these boys so far--DRAMA! But seriously, boys are easy--buy my daughter gives me a run for my money!
Holly, I'm right there with you. My daughter is more trouble than all 4 boys. I can't wait till she's a teen

Badwater Basin Y'all!
My boys are still little but thus far they've been way easier than my girls so I'll agree with the majority Now that my girls are school age it's even worse, you wouldn't believe how early the 'girl drama' starts!
