There’s something that a good friend of mine who is also expecting her second child shared with me the other day, and it kinda got me thinking. Her first born is five years old, and during this her second pregnancy, she’ been wondering how, or whether she’ll be able to love her two kids equally.
It kinda got me thinking too because maaaan, I have so much love for Kitty – a love that totally consumes my whole being, and with baby #2 on the way, I’m just a little bit curious. I’m curious as to whether all this many love I have for Kitty will have to split itself into two, or whether my inner wholesomeness being will have to multiplicate this love so that it can now be double? (donno whether that sentence makes sense but it’s the best way I could describe it).
So exactly how does this loving more than one kid work? My friend and I will be glad to know.
Are we just being naïve in thinking that one can love all their children equally? Is it just a myth? This thing that we sometimes hear of parents having a favorite child – ebu tell us, is it true? Ati even though a parent claims to love all the kids differently, there is always that one child who is more special, more loved than the others? Is this true?
