  • Yes, but I relate to them in different ways. My oldest and I are more able to talk and discuss things at a more mature level. My twins in someways are still like little kids so I relate to them as such. Also, I love them the same but at times I don't like their behavior the same.

  • Absolutely. I have one daughter and one son. I tell her she is my favorite daughter and him he's my favorite son!

  • I love my children. I treat them differently because they are different people. They don't like the same things and they react differently to the same event. The love is complete and unconditional. Even when I want to send them packing or just kick them hard, I still love them.kiss mini

  • I have four, two girls and two boys... and yes, I love them all equally! :-) They are each so amazing and precious, and each brings their own special light to our family. When I look at each of my children, in that moment that baby is the whole world to me... I have a special connection to each one, that is unique to that child. My life without any one of them would have a huge gaping hole

  • Equally and differently.

  • Agreed w/ above poster. I love them equally but differently. Each one is so different from the other. It's funny how they can all be so different. I love them all in different ways, but my heart loves them all the same!

  • Oops....forgot to add. I know of someone who said they had a "favorite" son. I thought it was horrible. I k now of ppl. who pick one child over another; happened to me and it's not a fun thing for a child to deal w/. I just can't imagine it.

    Answer by huntannakay at 9:11 PM on Apr. 27, 2009

  • Yes equally. But all completely different ways.
