Re: Sick of being the Favorite!

We all get "needed and touched out," Mama. Take a bit of time for yourself. I do have one that wouldn't allow me to meet any of her needs, except BFing for 25 months. She wouldn't kiss me goodnight, turned her face away. DH said that it would bother him. I was ecstatic that she loved her Daddy so. Then DS came around and that all soon as she had real competion, she wanted me.

Now, DS is all about Me! He tugs at my heart soo. It is such a short time that our LO's need us. If you get a bit of time to yourself and a bit of help from DH, maybe you'll get some perspective. Soon enough this special time will be gone!

Wow DH here used to not care for the computer, NOW he lives on the thing playing the d@mn games! We don't have video games except N64 (we're so outdated in that aspect). And today he was fixated on doing the taxes, that's fine and dandy not listening to a word I said!

I breastfed my son as well, I think it just wasn't AS demanding because it was him only. DS has been jealous of newborn DD so it has been rough. He went through a stage at the beginning where he DIDN'T want me, it was as if he resented me for bringing DD home.

Then he went through a strictly Mommy stage, NO DADDY. Now he's starting to let Daddy read him stories and such before bed but certain things I still have to do which is ok, but the most frustrating part is the fact that it always seems to land on the moments DD needs to eat. I think that's part of my issue.

Whenever she is awake during the day and not fussing it's almost like I'm always anticipating her starting to fuss. I spoke to a few mom friends who've said the same thing. There is that peaceful feeling or shall I say relaxing feeling when you know the kids are sleeping and you actually have a few hours to do...well whatever you want to!

I told DH tomorrow I'm going out alone to do some shopping...buying a high chair (I have a coupon and sounds like a great reason to get out of the house). Maybe stop a few other places. I don't know, I'll find something to do!

Re: Sick of being the Favorite!

I totally understand. My dd is attached to my dh and he is by far her favorite but with our ds he is such a mama's boy it's not even funny. They both have their advantages and disadvantages! It can be really hard not being the favorite too, trust me. I also have my "me" time after the kids go to bed.
