Did one of your Kids cause your more worry or stress?

Reading Shirley's post about son #2, & seeing Sabr's response, I wonder if everyone had one child who caused them more worry than the other(s)? Is that one still a concern or did they outgrow that as they became an adult? When you look at them now-what do you think?
Our second daughter seemed very easily upset-I remember Mike asking me if I thought it could be PMS? No, not at the age of 2, I was pretty sure he couldn't blame that-yet. I was always amazed at how, mid-temper, the world could collapse & she would never notice. And yet-to everyone else, she was a blonde blue-eyed angel with an adorable smile. The first time she went to the dentist-Mike took her (the ONLY time he took her)& the dentist said she wasn't hurt or scared-she was mad & he'd only ever seen one other child like that in his life. At a parent-teacher conference, one very nice teacher said "and if I say something wrong-I get these icy-blues glaring me down over her book. She doesn't say anything-she just glares at me" (at home she glared AND said something)
Now she is the lovliest & nicest person-kind & gentle, she works as a Nursing Supervisor with Handicapped Children & the staff & parents think she is wonderful. BUT-her daughter-almost 15-is becoming so much like her mother was...Our poor son-in-law. (But revenge is sweet!)
