My mother once told me I was her favorite of her four children. I think in many ways, she and my father always treated me accordingly. I always felt guilty both about being their favorite and about being treated as such. I tolerated their wrong-headed beliefs growing up but recently it’s been made apparent that I need to do more than tolerate their error – I need to actively correct it.

My mother told my wife she’d always love my daughter the most, no matter how many more children we have. With a son on the way, this needs to end.
