First let me say this is Mr. Geek's post--something he said I should write about. It started one day, one long, long day when I had had just about enough of being a mother by the time he walked through the door after work. We've been talking on and off how Sojo is obsessed with me, like most boys are with their mamas, and how I'm constantly in his radar, even when the Mister is around. Mom-meee!, Mom-mee!" he shouts, even when I'm just in the kitchen preparing dinner while he plays with his papa. " Just leave me alone for 5 mintues!" says the black cloud over my head.
It must be frustrating for dads when they are always the less-famous sidekick of the parenting duo. Or as Mr. Geek jokingly calls himself, just "a friend of the family."
Yeah, that expression says it all: Mommy, put down that camera and HOLD ME!
So what's a dad to do? Does this eventually even out, where as a 3 year old, S will cling to Daddy and spurn me? Or will this turn into a Norman Bates type of dysfunction? Seriously though, when does this obsession taper off?
