I think it depends on if she actually likes them or not to be honest. Some cats can be great mothers but by the time they are 7-8 weeks they cant stand the sight of them. She may simply prefer to be an only cat :)

You also have to think about weaning and ensure mum is speyed (now would be a good time) and all the milk is dried up. Having a kitten about will prolong her milk producing however she has to be fairly dried up before your vet will spey!

I would pick the kitten with the temperament and personality you think will fit the best with Mum and the rest of your family. Some Mums have favourites, for my Millie that's always the biggest boy - very darwinian of her ;)
