When we first brought Sam home, Ben's Daddy Favoritism flared up again really badly, but it's waned to a tolerable amount in the last three months. And last week when Heath was on a business trip Wednesday-Friday Ben was a lot more affectionate with me than normal. I knew it was just because Heath was gone, but I still enjoyed it.
However, the specter of Daddy Favoritism is always looming above our heads. On Friday morning we were in the car and the following conversation took place:
Me: Ben, Daddy will be home tomorrow!
Ben: Yeah. I wish you were gone.
Me: What do you mean? You wish I was gone instead of Daddy?
