I'm feeling like a high school girl again, competing for attention from the boy I love. Trying every possible thing to make him like me and want to be with me. I try to be fun, exciting, nurturing, but nothing seems to work. Oliver still chooses his dad over me :(
To be honest I never thought I'd be jealous of Oliver wanting Sean over me. At first I thought it was adorable that he's a daddy's boy, but now it's just getting ridiculous. Honestly, does he not remember the fact that I carried him in my belly for 9 months!!! Does he not remember all the night time feedings, the diaper changes, the bathes, the constant holding and tending to his every need? Where's the appreciation?
Lily was always a mommy's girl and I loved it to some extent. Sometimes it would bother me because she wouldn't let Sean do anything, like carry her, buckle her seat belt, push the stroller, brush her teeth, wipe her bum. I had to do it all. Now I'm thinking that it's better than the alternative. Oliver shakes his head at me and pushes me away when Sean's holding him, and he cries at me if I come too close or talk to him when Sean's around, makes me sad. But ya know what? I'm trying to be a good sport about it, I guess Sean deserves his turn to be the favorite:) Gotta overcome my jealousy... on second thought, scratch that idea. I have a new plan. I'm just going to try harder to be the fun one :)
Any tips on how to win him over? I've gotta come up with some new tactics. I was thinking I could wake up at 6am every morning to plan out my day full of activities ALL for Olly. First we'll start out by having cookies and milk for breakfast, fresh baked, followed by a 2 hour ride on the 4 wheeler, then we'll go to the pet store and buy a puppy. We'll pop over to the candy shop, then swimming, then the zoo, and of course stop for ice cream on the way home. Who cares about the dishes, laundry and list of things that need to be done, making dinner for Sean and Lily, or spending time with them. It's all about Oliver now, I've got to focus on the goal here, can't have any distractions.
