They ask which one I like more. I tell them I dislike them both equally.

I can honestly say I dislike all my children equally.

As the favored child out of 3 I feel I'm going to let you slighted others in on a little secret.

The reason your parents never loved you more was because you were a constant disappointment.

Cheron: I like beer and I like pizza.  I like a cold beer after mowing the lawn and pizza makes a great meal after a long week and the two go together.  I have a son and a daughter, they go together but are different enough that you don't pick one over the other.

if your son and daughter "go together" perhaps you should refer to a recent article about sperm bank children.

indarwinsshadow: True subby. So damn true. My oldest son is 23 and I've never connected with him. I love him, because he's my son, but I never really liked him. It's a sh*t thing to admit, but there it is.

I like to think my business-like attitude towards my son makes up for the spoiling his mother is doing. Meanwhile, I'm completely dumbstruck by how much prettier and smarter than him his baby sister is.

HotIgneous Intruder: Civchic: We have two kids, but they're still too new (3.5 and 11 months) to pick a side.  :)

You're on zone defense now. Enjoy!

Nope, you are still using man-to-man with two kids, with three or more, you switch to zone.

I have five kids, and Mrs. Engineer and I use a zone defense, with the family dog serving as the free safety.Unfortunately, we have tie a steak to one or two of our kids to make it work.

My four year old daughter watches all the Marvel and DC cartoons and movies with me because she loves superheroes. She also likes Star Wars. My 1 year old daughter comes running when she hears the DS9 theme and watches it with me. How the hell am I supposed to pick a favorite?

My mother was a mean, lying, narcissistic b*tch who never pieced together why I moved 800 miles away from her the day I turned eighteen (and limited my visits "home" to once or twice a year). She once told me that her biggest regret in life was that she'd spoiled me so badly, because it made me turn out selfish.

She's dead now. I miss her sometimes, but not very often.

Well, I have to say that I wasn't like my siblings and they hated me for it, and did a lot of bad things to get me in trouble, etc.  They always said that I was the favourite and it pissed them off to no end, and they all ended up with "daddy and mommy issues",

When I talked to my dad a few years ago (before he died), he admitted that yes, I was the favourite for a good reason.  Turns out it was because I was not an asshole like the other kids were.

My own kids.. love them all equally, they each have their places, they all piss me off tremendously at times, and they make me smile in others.

There are days that wouldn't want my life without them... other days, let's say not as much.

SquiggsIN: In my family, the youngest kid never did anything wrong.  Seriously, it didn't matter what she did, one of us got blamed for it.  To this day my father will drive 6 hours out of state to see her and her family but won't bother driving a half an hour to see the rest of us within a county of him.

Maybe because you are only a half hour away and don't visit?  I always love when people like that complain.  "You never come and see me and I am so close"... well why don't you go over there?  Does the youngest have kids?  I know putting the kids into a car for a 6 hour drive would be murder for me to do and I would never wish that on anyone.

"Love" more, no I don't think so. "Like" more, yes absolutely.
