Then I started getting the comments about how much daughters LOVE Daddy!! I was just fine with that too.
I don't have an amazing relationship with my mother, but she didn't start driving me up a wall until I was a teen. So I thought I had plenty of time with my baby girl before all the drama started.
It seems I am wrong. At 21 months, it is clear that she prefers Daddy. If I discipline her, she runs to him. If I tell her that it's time for a clean diaper, I get the stink eye and she runs to him. If I tell her it's time to eat, she cries. Pretty much everything I say to her, causes her to cry, or wave her hands frantically and stomp her feet. If I am playing blocks with her and I ask her for a hug, she'll throw them down and run out of the room. Ack!!! In the past week, I've only gotten 2 unsolicited hugs and kisses.
But Daddy can ask her ANYTHING, and she is all over it. The same beef stew, that she just rejected when I gave it to her, she will eagerly eat for him. He can just look at her and say, "Yum!", and she dives in.
I mean really! I am with her all day.....play with her.....read books to her.....chase her around the house and play peek-a-boo. Why should Daddy get all the good treatment?
And yes, I am a little jealous. I am worn out at the end of the day, and all I'd like is to know that she loves me. Instead, I get distain and stink eye. I can only imagine what she's going to think about me when she does become a teen!?!?
What about y'all?? Do you have little girls that love you to pieces, or do you get passed over for Daddy?
