In our house, my daughter's #1 is her older sister. She absolutely adores her and will follow her around like a little puppy. I think I'm a distant #2. Not even sure Hubs is in the top 5.


I'm so in love with the Peanut, MD! Every time you put up a picture of her, my utuerus starts screaming. I guess that's nature's way of telling me I should settle down and get married.

Oh Baby Gifts

adorable story. In our family even the dogs get their ranks lol.


Cute! Just wait until you guys venture into parenthood a second time - woah boy - family dynamics will shift all over the place!

My guess is Peanut will latch on to you while BossLady tends baby2. It's a win-win.

Hope you enjoyed you ghetto dogs! ;)


right or wrong, my dad is always straightforward and honest with us. Always. So he's also told us that its just a known (secret) truth that parents love their kids differently - its never the same.

I just grew up feeling that its just an accepted truth that he loves my younger sister most (will always be his baby), and loves my older sister in a different way, as the mature leader and future caretaker of the family. Ppl are shocked that my dad would tell me this, but I don't feel that its bad to know.


I think my siblings and I prefer our dad over our mom, but that's because she can be crazy in the way that only Korean women can. My dad is more calm and rarely got mad at us. At the same time, I get the impression that my parents prefer my siblings over me. C'est la vie, I suppose.


I love your paraphrase of Mikhail Baryshnikov, "I do not try to parent better than anyone else. I only try to parent better than myself."

Something all those competimommies and drive-by parents should take to heart.


My favorite...the one that is causing me the least amount of trouble at that particular moment. Usually my boy, he's still sweet and smiley at 2, not like his uptight, incharge sister at 4.

Growing up, I was definitely my parents' least favorite kid. I was the one always getting in trouble, dropping out of school, and making them worry. Somehow, 25 years later, I'm their favorite. Why? Because I'm the only one who gave them grandchildren! Ironic, isn't it?


I think I'm number 1 with both of my kids. but I'm a SAHM and so I spend a lot of time talking up their father and grandmother to them. Don't you want Papa to put you to bed? Can't Grandma kiss that boo-boo? After 8+ hours of all me, I am so ready to drop down the list.


I think I'm #1 with my daughter and #2 with my son (perhaps the fact that he always calls me "daddy" has something to do with my impression). And though I'd never admit this to them--I like hanging out with her more. She can be a pain, but she's super-bright, and we get to have great philosophical conversations. Her 4-years-younger brother just can't compete.


For awhile I was # 1 with my oldest daughter, and always felt little sorry for my wife. Now that things have switched I enjoy the "time off", but I'm also little worried if I ever will be up there in her affections. For now if Mommy asks her "...and do you love Daddy too?", she emphatically says "NO". Go figure!


Don't worry, MD. I'm #5 in my daughter's heart following mommy, grandma, the nanny, and auntie sue. I guess she's a girl's girl.


both me and my husband get bumped from the top spot by a certain golden lab whenever my son gets to see him.

I'm #1 when the kid is sick or tired, and my husband gets devotion when the kid wants to laugh...dubious winnings for me but I'll take it.


Whenever us kids (all grown but not married) tease my dad he tells us we are "No longer the favorite" and if we are all together, he plays us against each other.

It's really just a big joke in my family.

My dad is always quick to tell people that we take after him if we are complimented in any way. My mom just shakes her head. She knows his deal.


motha flippin...it's business time . you gotta have an emergency band meeting about who's #1!


I'm the youngest of four. Whenever I joke that my dad loves me best and says he has the known the otheres longer so naturally he likes them more.


Personally, I think I'm #1 to our son, Parker, but, I'm sure it changes according to the day and whoever has given themselves more to him. We never gloat about it...its just sorta "known"...and there are times when I wish I weren't #1, like when Parker yells from the bathroom: "Mom, come wipe my butt!". Uhg!

Well now, I was searching for blogs on fitness or health when i came across this post. Although not exactly what I was expecting I will give it ****.

If you have the money for it then you must definitely acquire at the very least one Louis Vuitton bag in your life time.

First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!
