50 Day Question Challenge 2016 - Day 5

5. Which parent were you closer to and why?

I was always closer to my father than my mother. As a small child he took me with him, read books to me, paid attention to me. My mother, I think, was resentful of my presence as it kept her tied to my father and their not so happy marriage. When my brother arrived I was 5, and mother lavished  the love and attention she couldn't or wouldn't give my father on my brother which created a gulf between us that never closed. No matter what I did, it was never good enough. I guess this smacks of sour grapes and envy, but both my parents have been dead many years, all their failings long forgotten.
