My DS is about to be five months old and when he was first born, I was obviously on leave from work. When my SO would come home from work, the baby obviously preferred me and would get a little upset whenever I gave him to his dad. But now, SO is out of work and stays home with DS while I work 7-4 5 days a week. Well now I just feel like SO is my sons favorite now. I just see the way they are together and on one level I'm happy that they have a special bond but on the other hand, I'm kind of jealous. I feel bad for being upset but I can't help it.
My kids each have a "favorite." My daughters always been her daddy's little girl, and my son is a complete Mama's boy. I get jealous that she wants her dad so much more then me, but whatever. They're kids. I"m glad she has that bond with him, you know? And now my son is finally connecting with his Dad and it makes me SO glad.
