I know she loves me, but it is hard not to let my ego get in the way. I am the one who takes care of her 80% of the time, and I feel like my life revolves around the kids. Yet, I always seem to take a back-seat to dad..... Is it because I discipline more? Am I boring? Do I smell bad? Does Todd hand out bags of candy while I am gone?
Don't get me wrong, I am glad that she loves her dad so much, but man- it's hard to not be jealous. I am just trying to muster up all of the zen inside of me and be happy, even on the days when she screams for her dad and tells me to go away. On those days it is pretty hard, and I would be lying if I said that I never shed any tears about this....
Have any of you experienced a child that strongly preferred your partner? If so, how did you deal with it emotionally? Any parenting tips for a situation like this? I keep hoping that this is just a phase, a very long phase, and that eventually, mom and dad will both be equally cool.
