I do not favor 1 over the other, or have a stronger bond with one over the other. But I have a different relationship with each of them, because they are such individuals.My firstborn was always a more difficult child. She demanded more attention growing up, and caused us more heartache. She is also my "shopping" buddy. When I want a girls day out, she's the one I spend it with. My second born is my only son. He was in Scouts, and I was a den mother when he was a cub scout. I encouraged him in his scouting, and helping him complete his Eagle scout on time. He doesn't live near me any more, but when he visits, we have a great time. My middle daughter has social anxiety disorder. She is afraid of people. She nearly died when she was 8 from a ruptured appendix. My DH and I suspected all along that she might never be able to leave home. She and I do housework together and just talk. My youngest is smart. She'll go far! Love 'em!
