I Don’t Have A Favorite Kid

Do you have a favorite kid? People love to ask that question. I’m guilty of it too. “Come on be honest, which kid is your favorite?” Honestly, I don’t have a favorite. I have moments where I like one more than the other, usually when they’re being an a-hole. But a favorite? I don’t have one. You see both my kiddos are my favorite. I know, I know, how can that be? Let me tell ya….

My son is so different from any kid I know. He’s the little nerdy, gamer, sweatpants wearing kid I would’ve avoided in school. That totally sucks and I hate that I was like that because he’s the coolest kid I know. He was my first kid. He showed me what love was. We grew up together and he got the best parts of me. He’s smart, funny, down to earth, and puts his whole heart into everything he’s passionate about. He’s a rockstar at video games kicking ass in every match, building the coolest stuff with his creative mind, and destroying his friends at Fortnite. He’s artistic and draws better than me. I can’t wait to see where his talent takes him and watch him improve his abilities. And he’s a huge goofball making random noises or faces or dancing around to make you smile. He’s a teenager now with a lot of attitude, but I love every hilarious, nerdy, goofy part of him.

My daughter on the other hand is everything I wish I could be. She’s the sweetheart the world doesn’t deserve. She also got the best parts of me, but in a different way. She’s sweet, sassy, goofy, nerdy, and has a heart of gold. She goes out of her way to make others happy giving gifts or drawing pictures. She never hesitates to sing karaoke or dance around like a goofball. Her smile lights up a room and makes everything better. She’ll nerd out to Star Wars or The Hobbit with me, but argue about which character is better. Her stubbornness is real and her sassiness could kill. She’s passionate about helping the planet and picks up garbage when possible. I love every sassy, sweet, goofy part of her.

How do you choose between them? How do you choose when all the best parts of you are split between 2 absolutely amazing kiddos? It’s like the universe knew which parts to send to each kid and make them the best they could be. Even when they’re being a-holes, I love them more than anything and could never choose between them. They’re both my favorite. There’s no comparing 2 completely different kids to each other. I love them both equally.
