Now let’s understand this from a parent’s point of view.
Yes, I have a favorite child. In fact, I have two, writes Katie Ann Holton. “I have sons, one 21, the other, 16. I’m not sure it’s possible to quantify love. I do know I love both of them with my whole heart. I do, however, have situational favorites,” she adds.
“I love to watch movies with the little one. The big one is always asking questions about what’s going on in the movie. “I love you, Son, but shut up and watch the movie. You have a brain the size of a planet. Use it,” she writes.
“I love talking with my firstborn about what’s going on in his life. He’s 21, and a Junior at UCLA. He has a long-term girlfriend. He told me that I won the cool boyfriend’s parent award. He and his girlfriend enjoy dinner with me, my partner and the little brother. I don’t lecture them. I treat them like the bright engaging young adults they are. Apparently, not so much with my ex or with the girlfriend’s parents,” she adds.
The mother writes how she enjoys spending time with both her kids and has her favorite but only on different situations.
“I do love both my children differently, but I also love them equally. Completely,” she concludes.
