Is this weird?

My dd 7 is extremely attached to her dad. She is always writing letters to him and such.

In class for a back to school night. They were suppose to write a "Who am I?" letter and we are suppose to figure out which was our child's. My dd wrote one but it said "dear daddy, I wish you would never leave me. I miss you so much" ext. We broke up when she was a baby. I'm married and have other kids.

It seems she cares for nothing but her dad and she sees him all the time. It honestly hurts my feelings she is so attached to him. She doesn't tell me she loves me, she doesn't hug me, doesn't like doing anything with me. She just says daddy, daddy, daddy. It doesn't seem normal to be this attached and such. Is it? Is it silly I feel hurt and saddened by her also?

I was a daddy's girl. When I was seven, I married him like,weekly. I even did tomboyish stuff because I thought it would make him like me better than my sister.

Were you always that way? Did you at least tell your mom you loved her?

No. It's relatively normal for a girl to be a daddy's girl. The fact that she lives with you and just gets to "see" him would just cement the issue for her.

It's normal. Just take initiative and make sure your the one saying I love you and giving hugs first. She sees your other kid with their dad every night. I can understand her feelings for him.
