He Broke My Heart

Evan got sick in the middle of the night last night. I went running to help him and get everything clean. I stuck him in the bath while hubby threw the sheets and blankets into the wash. I cleaned everything up and put new sheets on his bed. He was asking where his daddy was the whole time. What about ME?

Then he broke my heart. He wanted hubby to lay down beside him when it was time to go back to sleep. I almost cried. He's always wanted me when he was sick. I slept beside him anyway since hubby had to go to work today, but I know that he really wanted his daddy.

I know that he's home with me all day and he gets excited when daddy comes home, but I'm not ready for him to prefer daddy. He was asking for me to rock him to sleep every night, but he started asking for daddy this week. :( I'm going to try not to let it bother me, but I can't help it.

Pin It!

Aw, poor mama! So sorry, I personally know how bad that stings! It's just a phase, mommys are always better than dad's! ;)

MOMMY-MOMO said...

Lisa said...

Aww, sorry to hear it. Allie is constantly asking for her Daddy, but it is because he is not here. I hope Evan feels better soon.

Every night my daughter asks for her daddy to read her a story before bed. When I ask and pratically beg to do it she starts crying and says she wants daddy to do it! That totally breaks my heart but I always remember that she still loves me and that its ok for the daddy to be needed too. sniff sniff...
Sorry he isnt feeling well and I hope he gets better soon.
I am sure you two are having a nice sick day snuggling on the couch watching cartoons :)

Cindy said...

I was thinking about this the other day, the days where my daughter wants her Daddy all the time...
I guess it is hard because we grow up with the baby always needing and wanting us. Babies always love their mommies though, so do not worry Momma. It still makes us sad!

My daughter is only 10 months old and is already COMPLETELY a daddy's girl! I know the stinging feeling of her wanting to be with her daddy all the time. My husband stays home with her while I work. They're really close, but at the end of the day, I feel blessed that she has such a good father-figure. She loves her daddy, and I love that!

Hope your little guy is feeling better...My Will is definitely a momma's boy..although when he sees daddy come through the door he is super excited.

My boys never were bothered when I left them at Aunt Terra's house or Grandma and Grandpa's house in the morning. They are my daycare. Of course Aunt Terra drops her kids at our house twice a week, and her kids have crocodile tears. It bothered me. But...the last two weeks my youngest has cried a sad cry all the sudden when I drop him off. I feel bad for him, but I love that I am loved!

Evan probably just misses his daddy since he's gone a lot.

Kelly said...

Awww.. poor litte one. So sweet that he wanted daddy!! Don't take it personally!! Just think of the sweet moments your hubby will get to have that you have gotten to enjoy in the past!

Lisa said...

I know how you feel. When Sharon gets sick all she wants is her daddy. I hope Evan feels better soon. lisal71@hotmail.com

I know how you feel. My son is 2 and has always has been a daddy's boy. I wonder if he will want me as he gets older.

S Club Mama said...

that's been going on around here lately, too. Just leave for a day and he'll want you back LOL

ParaJunkee said...

I get the same thing. My hubby works a later shift, so she doesn't see him in the evening. For me it's "Hi Mommy," and a hug, when she sees him its a running start and a big "DADDY."

Chrissy MacCEO said...

I remember feeling the way you did when my son did that. I felt like I am there for him all day long and he should trust me and want me to help him with anything & everything. I was heart broken. They work in stages, this too shall pass. You are a great mom!

Emily said...

All my kids prefer daddy over me. It used to bum me out too...until I decided to look on the bright side of things and realized how much more free time I was gaining! :)
I hope Evan's feeling better. Bless his heart.

Tired Mom Tésa said...

Oh, that is hard. I know that day is coming soon for me too. Hope he and you are feeling better.

Michelle said...

My almost 10 year old is still a mama's boy but I was a single mom for a lot of his life so our situation is a little different.

Try not to be too sad, mama :-(

I have been hearing "Daddy" a LOT lately. What kills me is that Daddy isn't home this week. He doesn't travel much, but this is the first time he has done it and LJ has noticed. He doesn't want to go to bed, or anything. The other night he woke in the middle of the night and I brought him in bed with me to calm him down. Well, when he saw daddy's pillow empty he pointed and cried even more "daddy, daddy, daddy." Boy did that one just break my heart. All I can say is he will be home in a few days...
I feel for you. My LJ is in love with his daddy, but like so many have said, he sees me all day, but Daddy is just there at nights and weekends.

Mighty M said...

My daughter prefers me right now, even though I'm with her all day. She says she loves me just a "little bit more". But I know she loves her daddy too - and someday the tides will shift and you will become the "preferred one" again. :)

Suzanne said...

It stinks when they do that, my son told me my DH was the best Dad in the World and later that same day told me I was the meanest Mom ever because I wouldn't let him play the Wii allllllllll day long.

Thao said...

My twins are always clamoring to get to me and now one of them runs to daddy. It bothers me a little but I know it makes my hubby feel very loved. It's hard but just think how great it is for your DH.

Nikki said...

Oh mama! I'm not looking forward to that! :( {{HUGS}}

Amy said...

aw mama - same thing here. I think he seeks my husband's attentions ince mine is so freely given and my husband works till the early morning - like betwen 11-12 and then wants to be on the computer till the wee hours - till light - then sleeps all day. So he vies for attention with the computer. So if daddy is there - its all about him - even just watching him.

Dawnette Thomas said...

I am so sorry. Days like that never feel good, no matter what age your child is. Blessings to you and your "mamma heart".

Awww! Just reading this post now, so I'm sure you're past all of this. However, just want to let you know that my kiddos switch off their loyalties pretty regularly. So if they're going through a Daddy-phase, I know it's just a matter of time before they're crawling all over me 24/7 again. :)
