Be Careful What You Wish For

I am the Mommy, even though I had man hair 
Remember a few weeks ago when I was belly-aching that Isabella never seemed to want me?  Well it turns out I need to eat that post because apparently now I'm the only thing that matters.  I won't lie, it feels really wonderful to be wanted and loved by her.  To freely receive hugs and kisses and "I love you Mommy"'s.  But when she shuns Andy it doesn't seem to send him into a downward spiral of despair and self-loathing...go figure.  But being first can be exhausting.  I'm the only one allowed to make her food, take her to the potty, give her a bath, put her down for a nap.  Maybe that's why Andy doesn't care when he's not #1, he gets a break?  And maybe I need to stop keeping score and getting all dark and twisty when she goes through a phase where she doesn't give a rats ass about me.  I think I just need thicker skin because when it comes down to it...who doesn't love their mama?!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.  I'll be looking forward to seeing beautiful pictures and reading yummy recipes.

I've come to find that no matter what, when it is all said and done, the ALWAYS want their mama! It might not seem like it at the time, but deep down in their hearts is an intense love for the all powerful mommy!!

Oh man, my husband was so sad when the Babby only wanted me. Especially when she could talk and then actually say so... and I'm like, whee, I get to change the poop diaper and clean yogurt off her! Aren't I lucky! But then sometimes it shifts and she says "No, mama, not you! Papa!" And I'm honestly not hurt in the feelings department! It just shifts back and forth - and I do feel like I get a break when she doesn't want me!
