Like Ian, I wanted all boys too. The idea of raising girls is scary. (That is a fear that has proven true!) But I thank God not only for giving me my daughter, but also for giving her to me first. I do believe having a little girl first helped alter the way I am raising my son right from the start.

i still cannot wrap my head around the idea of having a kid that is an adult.  my oldest just turned 13 (boy).  we have another boy, 9, and then our daughter is 6.  and i am wrapped around her little finger.  i wanted all boys, but once she came along, i changed my tune, i am just thrilled to have a daughter.

Hi. I have 3 daughters, ages 34, 26, and 15. I've been raising girls non-stop since 1980. Each one was vastly different. I'm proud to say that the 2 oldest have launched successfully, 1 married, one engaged, both gainfully employed. Now if I can just get the little one out and on her own.

I wish I had had a son or two, but girls are really great.

My daughter will be 5 next month. This past weekend I was on a seemingly never ending cycle of being the best daddy in the world, the meanest daddy, not having a daughter any more because I didn't love her, and just plain getting yelled at. Oh the joy of snow days making for long weekends.

I have a soon to be 12 year old. I live in Houston. She is a handful.

Hey Michael, congrats on becoming the father of a daughter!  I'm sure you're finding out already that it can be an interesting, fun, and aggrevating experience.  My daughter turns 21 this year and is in college.  Cherish the little things like walking around the block and playing on the swing with her.  They will be some of your best memories!

I’m a fairly new father. I have a one year old daughter. 

Comment by Chuck Smith on October 11, 2013 at 10:21am

Good day all.  I am a father of 3, 2 of which are girls.  A 21 year old spending this weekend at the RenFair in Houston and a 17 year old on high school dance team.
