    Equally but differently, both have days where they challenge me and days where I am consumed by love.. Each is loved as an individual for who they are.. Different but no less or more and I hope they know this

    My mum - while quite drunk - admitted to me recently that my brother was cuter & smarter & she was more bonded with him as a little one. That he was her favourite... but that we have a better relationship in adulthood though.

    Which was kinda good to hear because I had always known it was true. Which is fine, my brother is pretty awesome.

    I only have Jasper so far & I think he's pretty awesome, so we'll see how baby girl measures up

    My mum definitely has a favourite but you'd be hard pressed to pick it as an outsider. 2 of my brothers are really draining and the other one is the cruisiest boy you'll ever meet. She's his favourite (tied with me! ) because she knows he won't give her grief and fight everything she asks him to do.

    In saying that, she loves all of us and would fight to hell and back for each one of us in a second.

    Mine really ebbs and flows with whatever is going on. I LOVE them all with all of my heart, but at times one or other irritates me no end.

    I will say my 7 yr old is extremely easy to be around, and he is quite like me, my 5 yr old is my total opposite, so our relationship is something I have to work at a lot harder.

    And my toddler is... well a toddler!!

    I've only got DD so far. But I know my sister is my mum's favourite. It doesn't bother me really. I was talking to my sister about it when drunk one night (mum was there) and I said that it was because mum and I are so alike, mum agreed. We're both quite strong and blunt and opinionated, my sister is 'softer' and more emotional, so she's a nice contrast to our personalities. I know mum loves us both very much.
    And since having DD our relationship has changed too, sometimes I'm the favourite now because I have DD who mum absolutely adores, so some of that favoritism rubs off on me

    I think you're right. I love both my girls equally but I do favour one. Not that she gets treated differently or anything - both have to follow the same rules. But one's a daddy's girl and the other a mummy's girl and I guess that's just how it works sometimes!

    I love my children with all my heart and would do anything for any of them however I do have a 'favourite' and that is DS2. He is always coming for a kiss and a cuddle and wants me whereas DS1 would much prefer to be with Dad. DP also favours DS1 and DS1 always wants to be with him and do things with him so same situation.

    I dont have a problem admitting it...not sure why its such a taboo thing to say. We are all individuals, including our children, and we all have favourites in our adult relationships so why would it be any different in our relationships with our kids?

    Just because at this stage I may have a favourite doesnt mean I care or love my other children any less.

    :Laughing: I think I've heard that too

    I hope she didn't say that in a way that hurt or upset you though
