He is ALL ABOUT the daddy these days. Both kids have gone through phases where they prefer one parent over another (but I'm usually on the positive end of that leaning) but this latest situation goes much further than that. He not only prefers daddy, he seems to really find me unwelcome.
I'm not allowed to get him dressed, to bathe him, to buckle him, to tuck him, to get him a spoon...and the list goes on.
He's all "No! My Daddy! My daddy do it!!"
This morning I went in to say good morning to him and he gave me the biggest scowl I've ever seen and said "noooooo!. my DADDY say good morning!!"
It's gotten so bad that the other day Matthew got hurt and when he rushed over to me for some comfort, Ben actually said "NO Matthew! You go to Daddy, not Mommy!" Not only am I persona non grata, he's actively trying to turn the other one against me too!"
I'm starting to get offended.
I mean, I birthed that child. I wake up with his little butt every single night and get him back to sleep. I give him medicine when he's sick. I buy his clothes. What gives? Why does he suddenly hate me?
Wait till he finds out that I'm Santa too. Little dude better start being nicer to me. He's only got 36 days left. :)
Has your child ever stopped liking you? How have you dealt with it? Does it hurt your feelings?
