My daugther so prefers her Daddy these days. The minute he gets home, I am totally forgotten and sometimes even asked to go away. Ouch.
Now, Chris does do his fair share of discipline (and you all know from here what an excellent father and husband he is), but he, by far, gets to be the "fun parent" right now and that is just a bummer for me. Of course he wants to see her when he gets home. He doesn't get to see her everysinglesecond of the day like I do.
I am the one cooking a healthy meal (while Daddy is playing), and cleaning up messes (while Daddy is playing), and saying "bedtime!". Hell, no wonder she prefers him!
Is this how all mothers feel? Is this how my mom felt when I only wanted my Daddy? It took me having a daughter to really appreciate my mother and I never got to tell her how much I appreciate her. That makes me sad.
I am thrilled she loves her Daddy as much as he loves her. But man! Give me some sugar! Maybe someday? When boys are yucky?
