I think I have a favorite child. I know they say it is normal. And I would never tell either children that I favor one over the other. In fact, I am not even going to mention today who I favor most. But I fear that even though I try to hide it, and treat them both equally, I may be giving myself away. Children are pretty smart, and even at the youngest ages they pick up on feelings and moods.
I have also heard that with time mothers favor one child over the other and then it swaps. Hopefully this happens. Then I won’t feel so guilty since they will each get a chance to be in the spot light. But as guilty as I feel, I just can’t help it.
Do you have a favorite child? How do you cope with it?
