  • no - I just "like" them for the different reasons that make them different from one another (you have to "like" for different reasons b/c they ARE different). But I do love them the same.

  • Yes there are times that I do. It also changes depending on the kids, the day, the situation.

  • Uuuummm, yeah, sometimes I definitely feel that way....it makes me feel bad to say it, but I think they can pick up on it, love them both equally, but "like" that's a tough one!

  • I wouldn't say that I "like" one better than the other, but I do relate to one better than the other. I have one daughter who is very much like my husband in many ways, and my other daughter is so much like me, it's scary. With her, I feel like we just have a little bond type thing going on because we're so much alike. I LOVE and ADORE the daughter who is more like my DH, but sometimes I have a tough time figuring out her thinking or relating to her in certain areas. I try with her to point out the things we DO have in common so that she won't ever feel like I'm somehow closer to her sister than her.

  • remember our children are apart of us. they 're personality clashes with ours, and maybe that's why it seems we love one child more then the other.
