Mandy is a strategic , calculating, cold person. she looks at things in black and white , she doesnt let emotional attachments cloud her judgement. everything she does is to serve a purpose towards her own motives. including having supernatural/powered children
so if you look at the facts from just a Mandy point of view. we see in the begining
Minnie: was the child of highest potetntial. excelling, in academics, singing, acting, music, eitquette, combat/ stratgedy. excellent courage and determination her powers manifested early and she possessed great mastery over them. so she was the best specimen/candidate/heir watever
JR: average in academics, average intelligence, easily frightnedn no notable talents, no powers (reapers depend on scythe for most thier power but thier can be only 1 Death/grim reaper at a time. full power requiers the Original scythe). overall not best choice for an heir.
but after the events of halloween town this all changed.
Minnie: no powers, reduced to eternal ragdoll body, will never reach adult hood or any physical Prime , less emotionally stable, no further potential
JR: now a powerful hybrid, possess nergal powers along with basic soul manipulation from reaper powers, has almost full control, developed courage, earned moms respect, still has potential to advance, will become a powerful succcesor.
Conclusion. Mandy is more inclined to favor Jr. over Minnie
