THey do read through them often and have never expressed a concern for "not" being the favorite.

Not easy to make exactly the same for the both so I really hope they will understand it's not a question of favorite.

Just my opinion, but my kids have not even mentioned it in the slightest.
I think I lean this way... I want to use the cards/wa because they're sweet & pretty and just go with the page. I'm inclined to work on the assumption that IF one of my kids even notices that there are pages that say that his sibling is "my sunshine"/"my everything"/"number 1" or whatever, that he'll also notice that there are plenty of pages saying the same things about him...just in a different color scheme.

I was making a page about my son's artwork being in the district "art show" and my husband (youngest of 7, with a weird family dynamic) said I should not say "you are my masterpiece" (I changed it to you are A masterpiece, hahaha) but I recently made a page about my daughter with a "you are my sunshine" card & I didn't think twice. I'm an only child, though, so it made me wonder...
