How would you describe the relationship between yourself/SO and your children at least at this stage in their lives?

  • My son has always been my little boy, and still is even though he's older. He's going to be the one to take care of me when I'm even more fragile and enfeebled than I am now. My daughter has always kind of done her own thing.

  • My 8 year old son is definitely closer to me than he is to dad. But I think that's because I'm home more and we have more in common personality-wise than dh and ds do. My 6 year old girl is the closest thing we have to a daddy's girl. She will sit and snuggle with dad more than she will with me. And my 4 year old girl is quite literally my shadow most days- she is a total mommy's girl!

  • I am very close to both my son and daughter. my dh works out of town and they are very excited and gladdened when he comes home, too.

  • Both of my boys are mamma's boy's but that could also be that their dad is not around much.

  • My 3 year old is a mama's boy for sure! Our baby is still too young to decide.

  • All of my kids except my ds who is 6, have been momma's kids.. he loves us both equally. He will hug his dad and tell him he loves him. He will hug me and tell me he loves me daily. I am one too to tell them I love them daily. Nobody told me daily...
