Let's get it right out there: Is it OK to admit you love one kid more than the others?
It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a very long time, but I’ve been too afraid to say. I can’t be the only one out there who feels this way, though. Because moms aren’t perfect. Maybe we pretend that we are in front of other moms, lest we be judged for our failings. But we do all have them. And so…I’ve taken a deep breath, and I’m going to share.
I think I love my son just a little bit more than my daughter.
The author, "KATETIETJE," goes on to explain that she simply finds it easier to "gravitate" toward her 20-month-old son instead of her 3-year-old daughter for a variety of reasons.
Of course, reaction to the post has been swift. Many people have chastised the author for her harsh words — after all, her daughter might read that post one day.
Still, others have credited her honesty, even empathized.
