And here are the results from the "best" to "worst":

1. Two girls
2. One boy and one girl
3. Two boys

See whole list here

Yes the house is more chaos with 3 or 4 - that is more children!

Spend time doing something really resourseful. Who's to say what is perfect or not. I have a boy and a girl, that to me is perfect

that's interesting, since everyone I know who has little girls right now says girls are horrible lol!! And where do you fit if you have less than 2 or more than 4 children?

Let's at home we have one girl and two boys. But in total, we have four boys and one girl and she is the one in the middle.

We have a boy & girl - he is more placid & easygoing than she is (he was our 'perfect' toddler) & she is more full-on, active & outgoing. Perfect combo - regardless of gender, I reckon. You gotta be content with what you have. :)

The perfect family is where all children are lived and parents are loved and respected... Gender or number of children cannot determine the "perfect family".... Any family where children are involved is perfect in my eyes... As they are all a gift, that's why we struggle so much to have them....

I have a boy and a girl and sometimes they fight over toys, but other than that they're fine with eachother. And I find my girl is harder to handle than my boy but maybe that's because she's older, lol

Its whatever works. For some people a perfect family is big, for others it is small. For some it is all girls some it is boys some it is both. Its a very subjective issue.

I think it is all subjective...what is best for my family is not necessary best for yours...I do happen to have 2 girls, however, my sister has 2 boys & I (and she) would honestly say she would not be as happy with girls...
