That's what he said to me yesterday, anyway. Our dd is 22 months and has gone in and out of only wanting mommy stages. She's in one right now. We still bf and I sleep in her room. It has been an ongoing discussion with my partner and me: trying to nurture our relationship while also giving her what she needs at this young age. Overall, I would say we're doing pretty well.
I guess it's really hard for him right now when they are alone together because she asks for me a lot. Some of the language he's using makes hims sound really frustrated, like saying he feels like her babysitter and referring to her as "lame" because she was asking for me instead of playing with her friend when they were on a dad/kid date. It makes me feel like he's resenting me and his daughter and I would love some advice on what could help us move past this with grace. Yesterday, I wanted to reply, but you're not her babysitter, you're her father! So act like it! But that's petty and ridiculous and would not help.
But, that's where I am, too...
thanks for listening.
