Parents of same gender children

Is it normal or common for parents of same gender children only (ie. two or more daughters or two or more sons) to feel envious of parents who have a boy AND a girl? Or are most parents satisfied with how their family is comprised?

    It's normal, to a degree. Sometimes I think of what fun it would be to have a girl, but in the end I'm more than thrilled to have my sweet boys

    I believe it is normal to feel that way. I get lots of hate or snide comments because I got 1 boy then 1 girl.

    I think it totally depends on the parents and their wishes. We have two girls and we’re completely happy with that.

    I have three girls. I’ve always wanted a boy, but feel like the having babies part of my life is over. I think three is enough. Not willing to try for a fourth just to maybe have a boy. Husband has always wanted a boy and now seems like he’s in the same page of no more babies. We have three girls, that’s our family and we’re happy and at least I don’t feel like somethings missing just because we don’t have a boy.
