I bought a canvas so my 4 yr old son could paint a picture of me and him that I could hang up in my room. When we just went to paint it, he wanted to include my bf in the picture. Which I'm ok with bc I do believe we have a future together. My son ended up drawing me last and by that time, he got unfocused and colored my whole face in. I asked why he did that and he said he forgot he couldn't. I even drew a happy face on it before he did that so he wouldn't color it in. Then to make it worse, my bf like freakin' took over the whole activity. Instead of letting me write the names over our heads, he did!! He also took it to himself to draw the sun and the clouds. Why wouldn't he let my son do that ?? Even if he couldn't finish it tonight bc he wouldn't be able to focus, he could do it another time, right ??
Yesterday - when we were doing fake tattoos which my son loves to do, my bf kept trying to take over that too. He was like trying to take the wet cloth from me and the scissors!! He was also trying to get all of my son's attention. If my son was talking to me, he would interupt us and my son would completely forget what he was even talking to me!!
My bf knows thats the shit his dad used to do to me. Why is he doing it now ?? I know its not in my head bc even my mom has noticed it. Why do I get controlling guys ?? I love that my son enjoys spending time w my bf and my bf loves spending time with my son, but at the same time its like dude don't take over a project I put together for him and I to do. ya know ?? I have bonding issues with my son anyways and I'm really trying to fix our relationship. I'm sad to say this but maybe I will have to have my bf over even less if he doesn't back off a little. What do you ladies think ??
Please don't be harsh or bash me. Thanks!!
