Favorites

This post is causing quite the buzz on the internet. I wrote about similar feelings here.

I wonder why I didn't get all the hullabaloo?

Simmer down, people. Tongue is firmly in cheek. I realize that dogs do not equal kids.

The hullabaloo comes from the author being bat-shit crazy, not from the thesis of the post. And no, you're (unfortunately?) not quite there.

Seriously, there's an enormously huge gaping chasm (I'm still not sure that's enough adjectives...) between "I have a favorite" and "There are moments – in my least sane and darkest thoughts – when I think it wouldn’t be so bad if I lost my daughter, as long as I never had to lose my son"

Why are you reading a blog titled "being pregnant?"

Jaclyn - I was wondering the same thing. :)

That lady needs a lot of help. Seriously. I can't even believe what I read over there. I am disturbed. But not as much as she clearly is.

I was not specifically reading a blog titled "being pregnant." I am just drawn to controversy like a fly to honey. I truly do enjoy watching internet people get their panties all in a wad.

I don't know that I think she's disturbed. I mean, I really REALLY don't think parents should have favorites, but we're all human, so I know it's bound to happen. Controlling those emotions and treating your children fairly should be the goal, right? And from what she describes, that's what she's trying to do. She can't help how she feels...
