Same here. I"ve always had almost all boys. For the longest time, my grand-daughter was the only girl here, and she only comes on Fridays.

Now I have 2 boys and 1 girl. When this family started, I was so excited to finally get a girl!!

I have 5 boys, and my own 3 sons. I also have 2 girls for a couple of hours a week. I am not kidding when I say the 2 girls for a couple of hours a week are 10 times harder than the 8 boys put together (even if I had all 8 boys at the same time for the whole week!).
I would love a daycare for only boys

i have 8 boys (2 are mine , both SA) and only 2 girls. (which both are only here sporatically)

my old daycare in our other house was the same way.

and i have to admit, i kinda like it that way. i was never "girlie" and i dont always relate well to the girls i have. they seem to cry and whine and nit pick each other often, and that drives me batty. at least with the boys, they knock each other around, and then 5 minutes later they're friends again

I have 3 boys of my own plus I have 3 daycare boys and 1 girl! I did just get a call yesterday for a girl though. That'd be nice.

I definitely see a trend here....all boys for me too!!!

My question is, that when you finally do get a little girl....are you hurting for girl TOYS??? I have two toy strollers and ONE doll....the rest are tools, trucks, cars, dinosaurs, and if I see one more HAMMER I'll faint dead away!!!

because i just started inhome daycare, the 'boys' are all playing with girl stuff. The boys are 7 months, 11 months and 15 months. My DD is 2 yrs old. So its not that big of a deal YET. Tell they get a little older. Not much boy toys here :-( We're working on it, slowly but surely cause eventually i would like to have my own little boy!

Right now it's mostly boys. 10 months ago, it was mostly girls.

I did just finally get a REALLY nice set of play tools (YAY TARGET!!!!) that are going to be a hit with everyone, even my DD.

I have 6 boys and 1 girl. One of those boys is my onw, the rest are daycare. At least my girl that I have is somewhat of a tomboy, she isn't a girlie girl at all or else we would be in big trouble! LOL I have always had more boys than girls, just coincidence!

That's funny because I have the opposite! 4 girls and a boy! My DS3 is the only little guy. He doesn't really seem mind though because he just keeps on doing his thing and will play with the girls regardless.

I have three girls and one boy but tons of calls for boys in the future. I have two girls of my own and relate to girls more so I'm kind of bummed with all these boy request. Never know though maybe it will be easier since I agree girls do whine alot more.
