20That Darn “Number Two”


When a mom has more than one child and one of them has a major blowout, you can guess who the “favorites” are going to be. Moms may make comments to their children by saying, “Thank you for being my favorites” if they were the ones not to have the

incident. They also may joke with the little one who did have quite the blowout by saying, “Don’t do this again if you want to be my favorite.”

This is often all in good fun and it’s important to remember that. However, it’s also important to remember that if jokes such as these happen too often, they may impact a child more than the mom intended. But most of the time, laughing at that darn “Number Two” is necessary.
