  • Don't feel too bad and tell your husband not to gloat... he'll switch again.

  • what about how your husbands feelings, maybe it bothered him that your son was all over you prior. i would enjoy the little bit of a break and take the time to do something ive been wanting to do. i feel a little bit guilty when my boys are all about me and dont want to play with their dad
