There always seems to be a silent battle between parents over whose the favourite, parents may not admit it but when your child prefers one over the other there’s always a congratulatory feeling in your soul, like suddenly you win something. Right now I’m losing, maybe its because dad is back at work working 9 hours a day, or simply that my son has had enough of being a mommy’s boy but I simply cannot win with him lately.
He’ll eat for daddy, he’ll steal food right out of daddy’s hand and eat it! Yet mom can cook three separate meals in hopes that he’ll eat ONE thing and loses miserably. Kiddo will go to daddy and tell him when he has to go potty, he’ll even take daddy by the hand and lead him to the bathroom and pee on the potty like a big boy, where with mom, I have to chase him down, and try to sit him on the toilet without him toppling off because he WILL NOT sit on it for me.
Bedtime… is a dad thing, if daddy isn’t there then mom can buckle in for a good struggle. I do everything the exact same, but I can fully agree, it isn’t the same when daddy’s not there.
