As I listened, I gathered they were planning a Christmas decorating contest, and my daughter wanted me to be the judge.

My son protested, “We can't have Mom be the judge. You know who she always picks to win.” My ears perked up, and I wondered if I unknowingly favored one child over the others.

I couldn't help but smile because they were right. I just hate to pick one of my children over the others when they are all so eager to win. Especially when it is something so subjective.

And then the worry crept in. How can I avoid picking one of them to be the winner? Maybe I can create three categories, one for each of them to win...
