Out of context post warning.


Look, every kid who has a sibling knows that each parent likely has a favorite child. But your kid should never, not ever, be able to guess which child it is. Not when they're 5, not when they're 15, not when they're 40, not when they're 65 and sitting at the reading of your will.

And never should a parent actually tell any of their kids which is their favorite.

Never.

You'd be less upset if you stopped eavesdropping at Starbucks, Thumpa ;)

I secretly know I'm everyone's favorite.

That goes for grandparents, too! My parents made no bones that my son was the favorite of all the kids and grandkids! My grand daughter calls herself our favorite grand daughter, but she is the only girl

Kinda hard not to eavesdrop when people are right there yakking way..

I told my nephew he was my favorite nephew. He laughed and said, "I'm the only one!"

Erin said...

Well, duh! Actually there ARE no favorites. Each child is so totally different and special. I'm so flabbergasted I just don't know what to say. What I'd like to DO is shake those folks til their teeth rattled; fortunately I wasn't there and tempted...

When my nieces and nephews were at an age to care, they would as me if they were my favorite, and I would tell them they were my favorite 5-year-old, or 6-year-old, or whatever age they happened to be at the time, and if their sibling was with them, I would say "And X is my favorite 9-year-old."
