    I'm not sure I like one more than the other, they all have different personality traits and depending on what the situation is one will tend to mesh better with me. DS1 is an introvert so meshes better with DF who is also one, DS2 meshes better with me because he is an extrovert like me. DD gets on with me best because I have the boobs lol.

    No not really.

    dd is very spirited, out there and confident and I have alot of fun with her.

    ds is more shy, chats alot, wants more cuddles (more affectionate) and is alot more calm.

    I enjoy them both equally as they really are complete opposites.

    I do however seem to spend more time with ds as I feel he isn't great with coping and I seem to over compensate on making him feel happy.

    Not really a favourite as such but a favourite right now maybe. I am loving my 2 year old and my 13 year old a lot right now. My middle 2 boys are kind of not my most favourite people at the moment, however, I do change my preferences often.

    I kind of like hanging out with who ever is not giving me a lot of drama at the moment. My 2 middle boys are being very dramatic lately.

    However 1 on 1 with any one of my kids is always a favourite thing of mine. It seems drama is often found when we hang out as a group. lol My kids tend to fight from sun up to sun down.

    So I guess that has influenced this post. The 2 who are not fighting and driving me crazy at the moment are my fav's.

    Honestly, no. I adore them both equally. DS2 is more challanging at the moment, he is in the "terrible 2's" so things are quite difficult with him, lots of tantrums, saying no and blatantly ignoring me, but he is still just so gorgeous and brings me so much joy, even though he is handful he is learning so many more words and learning how to show more affection. While DS1 is more easy to handle at the moment, I can reason with him, we can interact quite easily, he is definielty more enjoyable because I am not having to deal with a million tantrums about every.single.thing. Honestly though, I think DS1 is more of a mummies boy, he is always wanting to hang out with me and willing to show affection, where as DS2 is more independent and often wants to do his own thing. 2 completely different children with completely different personalities, both have their share of driving me insane, but love them all the same

    No not at all. I get asked all the time if I have a favorite twin and the question really baffles me. Honestly how could you have a favorite child? I love them both equally and love spending the same amount of time with each of them.

    Which ever one is behaving the best at the time

    In seriousness i used to feel i was connected better to one of my DD's over the other but i am thinking now that was actually just an age thing (as in she was just at the age i find the easiest/nicest whereas my other DD was at a stage i find difficult). Now that stage has passed i feel equally connected with both my DD's- i don't know maybe it just changes over time?
    My children are very different and they both have things i like about them and things i don't like so much but i love them both the same - always.
