I'm not talking about love. I love them both. I'm talking about "liking." My son's personality drives me nuts. My daughter (almost 3), on the other hand, is so caring and laid back and... we just get each other. I can play with her and spend the whole day with her and not feel stressed... even when she's having a melt down, I can deal with it. My son (age 4.5) makes my blood pressure rise within the first 10 minutes of being around him. I can't play with him because it's all about beating things up or destroying things or other boy activities that I never understood. He's got low impulse control and is constantly moving/talking/screaming/arguing/making noise. He's exhausting. I love him, but I dread being around him for very long. I feel extremely guilty about this and depressed and like a horrible parent.
Do any of you have feelings of preference for one child's personality over the other?
