I don't think parents can have "favorite" children. I just don't think it is possible. I now understand how you can love two completely different people and love them equally, but uniquely.
I do, however, have times when I enjoy being with my kids mare than others. Walking a crying baby for hours? Not much fun. Listening to whining toddler demands? Excruciating.
But as they get older and grow and change I am finding more, new, fun things to do with them.
I am excited to take Jack to the library and watch him pick out books. Or to see his mind work as he helps me lay out train tracks.
I can't wait for Sarah to be up from her nap so I can sing and clap and do "Itsy-Bitsy Spider" and "Patty-Cake." I want to make kissing noises back and forth with her for as long as she will do it.
These are some of my favorites.
