My 7yo whispered “which one of us do you love more?”

This morning my 9yo wandered off to get ready and I was in the room with my seven year old. She looked at me and said “Daddy, which one of us do you love more?”

This was before coffee, coming off of being slightly ill for a couple of days or maybe just being sleep deprived.

With no hesitation I said “the one that doesn’t ask me that question.”

She said “So, Maggie then?” and I responded – “do you know if she’s asked me that question?” and that was that. I’d put her into a loop.

A while back my 9yo had asked the same question and I responded that I could tell her, but she’d never quite believe me deep down inside, would she?

Yeah suckers, you attempt to play the “who do you love more” game, you gonna get played.
