And some siblings have nothing in common and fight like cats she dogs no matter how close in age. The argument for having two kids of the same sex close together will make them best of friends rarely proves true. That's what friends are for. Just as many men dream of having a son, a lot if women want a daughter (not all). That is why people often say one of each is ideal.
Another boy, another girl, I don't care. They aren't my kids. I think people invest too much into other people's kids. Healthy baby is all that should matter. I just said it would be fitting as all three siblings round have the same, wih him in reverse.
