this is our deal too. I lucked out with Magnolia that he liked it.. but man.. he's very conventional.

for all the kids who are dealing with parents who can't soothe them at over a yr of age - I don't know what you've tried, but sometimes you just have to leave the room and let the other parent handle it. Or the house.

It's very normal and as the parent who is most frequently rejected around this house, I can tell you it's very painful. But I appreciate when DH leaves the room or whatever so that I can be the one to calm her down. Surely it'd be quicker if I just handed her to him, but how does that help anyone?

anyways... that's very off topic. and I do apologize if it sounds preachy or offensive. I don't mean it that way. I just know that it's hard to let someone else do it. but that it helps so much over the long haul.
SAHM to Magnolia May (09/10), Luke Russett (04/13) and expecting 11/16. Wife and best friend to my airman.
