Mommy Do It

Remind me in September when I go back to work and Isabella can't be bothered with me anymore that being the favorite isn't all that it's cracked up to be.  Since I'm home with Isabella 6 days a week, all day and night long (one day a week she goes to school to keep with her schedule, thank the heavens), she's all about Mommy.  And I love it.  I love that she loves me and wants me, but I'm getting a little bit over it.

When I've been with her all day, at the gym, at the park, at the pool, on the deck, reading books whatever and the last thing I want to do is give her a bath so I have Andy do it and she screams bloody murder "Mommy do it"

When I'm at the pool and I'd like to lay out for 15 minutes in silence with a book or a magazine or maybe I want to swim laps so I see if she'll go in with Aunt Meaghan and she firmly says, "Mommy do it."

Sometimes I would like to shower after the gym and clean off all my sweat, Andy says he'll make her lunch, but nope...."Mommy do it"

The only person who she might let do it besides me is my mom because she's fairly obsessed with her.  I don't want her poor father to think that she doesn't love him.  And I don't want to have to be the one who has to do everything all the time.  Ah, I'm sure I'll miss it in September, but for right now it's a tiny bit draining.

She just misses her mommy! She knows you are leaving again in the fall and is soaking it all up while she can! - The Neuff

I hear you. We went through a similar phase a few months back. I felt badly for Jerry - but she came out of it. It's exhausting!
