I have three kids. All of them are great but I find that I have a stronger connection to one of them. We just have more in common and get along better. I feel bad about that but that's just how it is. But with that said, I try very hard to make sure I don't show any outward sign of favoritism. I know how much that can hurt :-(

I'm on the home page!!!

No not at all. Not right now anyway. They both drive me crazy equally. Lol.

I was at my friends bday party this weekend. She has five kids. I was shocked to hear her say out loud in front of all 5 kids that her youngest is her favorite. Someone said the boys were being bad and she said "it must be zack. Tyler wouldn't do that" and her daughter said "it was Tyler! You just think he can do no wrong cause he is your favorite!" She said "well...that is true" they were all like "we know!" I couldn't believe it! And by the way...Tyler is THE BRATTIEST of them all!

Not really.  One day my older son might be my favorite but the next it could be my daughter or my younger son.  I think it depends on the day, how they've been behaving, etc.

Honestly though, I really don't have a favorite.

Nope - I love/like my boys equally - but for very different reasons!

Right now, the baby is my favorite. These darn older kids have the most horrible, smart mouths on them! Lol. J/k, I have favorites for different things, kwim? My daughter is my favorite shopping buddy, SS is my favorite when I just wanna bum around and be quiet, DS is my favorite when I want to feel needed. :) just examples...

I said yes, but no one will know...my situation is a little different, though. I have an 8yo SS who lives with his mom and I'm about I deliver my first. My baby girl is already my "favorite" if it counts as such a thing, but neither child will (hopefully!) ever know that. I try to treat my SS with as much love, respect, and care as I would my own child. He deserves nothing less. <3
