My son hates CAFEMOM!

I'm an only parent to a beautiful 1yr old boy named Luke aka Luca. My son used to getting all of my attention and trust me still does. Ever since I joined Cafe mom he's hated it. After I give him is bath at night and play with him for about 30hr and then read him a story he still doesn't want me on the computer. I have to be looking at him the whole time I think it's cute. He'll throw his body onto my lad top, he'll throw his sippy cup or gold fish on the keyboard when I'm typing. He'll play peek-a-boo behind the screen then try to close it, he'll put his little foot on the screen. I think it's so cute. Can you imagine when a man comes in my life how he'll react...

  • How cute! but he is demanding your attention, I can only imagine what he will do sharing you with someone else!

  • LOL Of course!! How dare you direct your attention anywhere else besides him mommy??!! My son does the same thing. There is a certain time of day where I try to establish "quiet" time..whether they want to nap or not, and my son just can't stand it when I am sitting down on the couch with my laptop. Oh the joys of motherhood lol

  • My son is the same way, in a sense. He doesn't want my attention on ANYTHING but him, lol. Usually when I'm on here, he's either on my lap, right next to me eating a snack, alseepy, or (rarely) playing with something I found to keep his attention for a few minutes, lol.

  • typingI do the same thing, I give him a little snack but he'll just throw then on the keyboard. I might have to start sneaking around.

  • Babies are little attention whores and that is absolutely awesome! He's giving you a little reality check. Give him all the attention he desires, I so wish I had my kids small childhood to do over, I would have spoiled them rotten with attention they so wanted from me. Now they are 22 and 16 and although we have a great relationship, they don't really want to be seen with mom...lol.

  • I think I spoil him enough with attention as it is. He's already attatched to my right boob. I know that I also need time to myself too or I'll go crazy and that wont make me a good mom. I try to be balanced.

  • Cute right now, but it won't always be. Now is the time to stop it by ignoring him and firmly but pleasantly that this is mommy time.
