  • Depends on the day and the activity. They love me for cuddles and lovies, and they love Daddy for fun and adventure.

  • Both my ds prefer their Dads. I think my 11 year old prefers his dad because the man gives him anything he wants. I don't, I set limits.
    I think my 1 year old prefers his dad because he doesn't see him that much (he works all day) and just loves to see him when he comes home.
    Some times it bothers me, but I know they both love me.

  • Yup my 13 month old daughter is very mommy-centric. Daddy works 12+ hours a day, so I the main caregiver.

  • Not really. I'm with our DD the most but she loves daddy just as much. When he gets in from work she runs to the door to see him.

  • Our son definitely prefers me over daddy. We're together all the time, whereas he sees his dad for maybe only a couple of minutes a day (and some days he doesn't see him at all), so he's obviously much more familiar/comfortable being around me.
