Do you have a favorite???

Do you have a favorite??? That was a question I was asked by one of my friends as work.
Now growing up and even as an adult I have always thought that my parents had always had
a favorite, and it was my sister she was always the prettier, smarter, never in trouble child.
I was always the one that was in trouble and had a harder time in school. Do I still think that
way no. Here is why.....

Now it didn't take me 1/2 a second to answer Jess's question. "No" I don't have a favorite.
Absolutely not. I have one girl, and one boy. They are are almost opposites. One is an early
bird, one is a night owl. One will try any food once, the other more picky. One more
conversational, one more quiet. One more snugly, one a little less touchy feely. One is VERY
ticklish, one is a lot harder to tickle. One loves to take their clothes off, one you have to fight
to get their clothes off. One eats the cheese off a pizza the other takes off the cheese and
eats the bread. One is more worried about others feelings then their own.One is more
independent, the other is more hesitant. They are both sweet, very loving, most of the time
very polite, great kids.They love each other, they love to play together. Do they fight with
each other, yes, but I believe at this point they are each others best friends.

I love aspects of each of their personalities, are they different, defiantly. Does that make
me love, or favor one over the other, NO. I love both of them equally, loving being with them
equally. What makes them different from each other is what makes them their own little
person. I love that they are both their own little people, and I appreciate their differences!

Disclaimer: Jess and I were having one of our "baby" discussions when this came up. She wasn't asking to be rude, just a question. She wants a baby BAD see here!!

**Jess butting in here!!! Don't stone me, mommy bloggers. I want to be just like you - believe me....I come in peace. I think maybe I phrased the question wrong, eh? Loves you.

Up next, tomorrow we are going to the pumpkin patch!!

I love the way you describe your babies. They both seem so sweet and a light in your life. When I tell my mom, I know I'm your favorite, she always answers your my favorite daughter.... :) but Joe and I both know she loves Michael best... lol.

Love your October blog layout theme!

Also, I cannot believe anyone in their right mind would actually ask a mother if they have a "favorite"?!?!? People can be SO DUMB! Arghhh!!

Soooo sweet. Kids are so different but in such wonderful amazing ways. I can't believe anyone could choose a favorite. Now, sometimes I like one more than the other!!! :0) Hee, hee!

Happy POW!

well - maybe not dumb but definitely without children or a clue.

Good husband and I have this discussion. Right now we only have one and he doesn't think it is possible to love another child as much as he loves Carter...I tell him it is possible!

Happy POW!
