. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Playing Favorites

Playing Favorites


sweater, leggings & necklace: kohls    boots: dsw   watch: groopdealz 

Joking about what child is my parent's favorite is a common conversation in my family and it's pretty much known that I am my mom's favorite.  Even though I have played the middle child syndrome card a few times.

While I don't think I have all of the typical middle child traits, like having to fight for attention, or feeling like I don't belong, I may have a few like being shy or impatient.

But I don't think I can attribute that to being a middle child, because I think my parents did a really good job of giving us equal attention and not favoring anyone when we were younger.

However, now that we've gotten older I have to say I may have earned the most favorite child.  Proof was that my mom bought me this ornament a few years ago:


It took a few years for my siblings to notice my ornament and due to their jealous feelings and my mom's need to make everything seem completely equal and fair, she had to buy them one too: 


But I'm just going to have to hold on to the fact the she bought mine first and without being asked. 

Is there a favorite in your family?

My husband and his two siblings got the same ornaments! The middle son opened his first, and everyone thought he was the only one to get an ornament. It's the running joke that he seriously is the favorite, so we were dying laughing!

I have 2 brothers. I always said, "I'm your favorite KID" and my mom would say, "You're my favorite DAUGHTER".
I know that I'm the favorite though.
I'm the oldest. They loved me first :)

Hahaha love this! I always have said I'm my mom's favorite :). My sisters always say it too but my mom denies it because well, she has to ;)

But secretly we all know, haha.

A few years ago, my mom went around to all four of us kids in private and asked who we thought was the favorite. Each one of us said we thought WE were the favorite! Although secretly I think I'm the real favorite :) Don't tell!

erica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those ornaments are awesome and I love your necklace. xx

Betty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I come from a family of 5 siblings...so we are always joking about who is the favorite. My parents are pretty good about not divulging who their favorite is...but I will say, that I talk to my parents more than any of my other siblings. So does that mean it's me? Ha. Let's hope so.

My parents won't admit it hit my brother (who is also a middle child) is totally my mpm's favorite! But that's ok it's a close fight between my youngest brother and me for my day's favorite :) And I LOVE that outfit!!! It's one of my favorites! No pun intended!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Too funny! I joke that I'm the favorite which brings on all the "middle child" jokes from my siblings.
P.S. Love the animal scarf and, no way can you have too many prints only too many solids!

Allison said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Nice outfit.

Ash said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That's so funny! My baby sister is my mom's favorite and my oldest sister is my dad's... So my second sister and I (the 3rd born) pull the neglected middle card all the time.
