Dad and my dearly departed brother.
Mum and sisters were too bitchy - I don't do 'girly bitching' too well (actually that could be a lie) but it probably explains why I get along better with men - mostly.
What about your little'un... who is she gonna favour? ;-)
I want her to be close to both of us but in terms of me I don't want her to be a 'daddy's little princess' who ends up being some sort of prick teasing control freak with only conditional motives. See, I'm a sociologist!!!
I'm not a mummy's boy or a 'Dad's lad' though I always thought my Dad was ace and funny and my mum a bit blah. Oh well, too late now.
I was never a manipulative child or anything like that - I just preferred hanging with my brother and Dad as they always did things with me I was into ie going to the movies, the zoo, epic walks with the dogs etc... that kind of stuff. It was more 'calming'.
I am the definition of one.
I worship the ground my mum walks on.
bizarre. Maybe I'm just not very close to mine, though I don't hate her or anything. Probably something to do with estrangement. Mind you I utterly utterly adore my daughter so not a sociopath then.
