Your daughter is in the Electra Complex phase of her life (happens around the age of 5-6--in boys it's called the Oedipal Complex)--see link below. She sees YOU as the wedge between her and her father--whom she naturally loves, and because she is still young, doesn't yet understand that YOU are not the one who "sent her daddy away" but blames you nonetheless!!
I would encourage more family togetherness, so she doesn't see you as a "threat" to her relationship with her father.
I have always found human psychology to be a fascinating subject! :o)
