  • I have 2 kids. They are alike but so different. My son is the most affectionate with me and my daughter is the most like me. We each have a very special relationship & I do have to work harder with my daughter but i will always work to be close to her because she's worth it. She's 4!

  • It depends on who I'm dealing with at the time. I'm also a single mom, and I swear the boys I have take turns trying my patience. Everyone has bad moods, it makes sense that when one is being a little snot they're not going to be your favorite person at the moment.

  • I dont think its more like we like another child than the other, but we are closer to whom ever is giving you less stress I guess. IDK.

  • I love all 4 of my kids yet the only one I truely fell in love with was my 2nd born...sure I felt love for them all but she was different..I never really knew love til she came into the world...I have treated my kids fairly but somehow this 2nd child of mine excells at life...she finished her first yr of college and has more credits then a sophmore, 3 will do 4 yrs of college in less then 3 yrs.
    I could go all day about what she has oldest is complicated, she has Aspergers, the 3rd born is very negative about herself, when she was 3 she was obsessed about jumpimg from the car when we would ride down the highway. my 5 yr ols is spoiled because his dad feels that is how you show son is not from the same marriage as the 1st 3
    my 2nd born is loud and outgoing and never has needed for much guidance because she is just so independent and extremely happy and I haven't done a thing to influence it

  • TX- this is my exact situation. My daughter is 23-the teen years were tough. My son is so easy-it's hard not to compare!

  • Yes, I do have a favorite kid. My 17 month old. She does no wrong and always does what she is told. I am sure that'll change soon but, right now she is my favorite!!
