No, but I enjoy each of my kids in a different way and relate to each of them individually. Sometimes I want to spend more time with one of them than the other two. But I don't think I could say I like one best. Maybe when they're older and I'm relating to them more as a confidante and guide, rather than a direct caregiver. Until your kids are old enough to be friends, it would be unhealthy to relegate them to the friend category and like one more than the rest. When they're independent, though, it probably happens to most parents.

I was trying to figure out how to answer that question but you answered it perfectly.

I only have one child. So, my daughter is my favorite, of course!

Nope, love them all ... even the 3 I didn't give birth to, I love as much as the 2 I did give birth to.  However, if you ask my youngest dd if I have a favorite ... or any of the other kids for that matter ... they will tell you I favor our youngest son (& he is technically my stepson!).  They will say he's everyone's favorite almost ... but then again the girls will all say they are their daddy's favorite!!!
