I read an article recently in a parenting magazine that really got me thinking. The article was about how almost all parents with more than one child has a favroite child. Now when I first started reading the article I thought two things; 1. How could someone actually admit that...and...2. Do I secretly have a favorite child? The article went on to say that you shouldn't feel bad for having a "favorite" and that as time goes on your "favorite" actually passes around to include all of your children.

Now I will be the first to admit that I thought the idea of actually having a favorite child was crazy, I mean we are talking about children not shoes, but the more I thought about it I realized that maybe we all do secretly like one or our children more than the other(s) at one time or another. I mean I know that the love I have for my son (since he's my only son) is completely different than the love I have for my three daughters, but why? Does that mean that I love him more? Of course not! Does that mean that he's my favorite? Well of that I'm not sure. I think I need some help with this one.

So let me you have a favorite child? Or do you think the whole idea is just crazy?

  1. my mother had six kids and someone asked her that exact question and she said she did not have a favorite but there was surely a child that seemed to need her more.


Can you relate? Well let me know about it!
