Well Aidan has professed who is favorite is around here. SPOILER ALERT:  IT'S NOT ME.  It's kind of one of those things where you ask a question that deep down you already know the answer to but you ask anyways and then you are hurt by the answer.

I guess I should have seen it coming.  I started to overhear Aidan saying things like "Daddy, let's go do something fun and not tell Mommy where we are going" and "Mommy, I love to snuggle with you but Daddy does it better". 

It was Saturday night in Waxhaw when he told me.  He was about to doze off and I said to him "Aidan, want Mommy to rub your back."  He responded "Nooooo, will you please go outside and get my Daddy so he can do it?"   "But Aidan, I'm right here."   "BUT MOMMY, DADDY IS MY FAVORITE"  and just for good measure he accompanied the biggest blow of my life  with a SMIRK! It was like a weight had been lifted from his shoulders. Now I knew.  The truth was out.  He had no appreciation for the 9 months I waddled around with him growing inside of me so he could grow up to be the wonderful young man he is becoming.  His father gets all the glory.

I proceeded to try to change his mind by reminding him of all the reasons why I should be his favorite.
"But I threw you the best Spiderpalooza birthday party ever."
"Mmmm hmmm."
"I turn on the sprinkler and let you run through it naked."
"Mmmm hmmmm"
"I convinced Daddy to get every pet we have so you could torture them and laugh about it."
"And I make a fool out of myself everyday so that your life is never boring."
"And I don't want to talk about this anymore Mommy, just get my Daddy."

Just like that it was done.  There is no changing his mind.   Daddy is his favorite. Initially I had planned on doing everything in my power to change his mind but once Adam got wind of that, he stepped up his game.  I have no chance.  

P.S. I finally took the plunge and made a Facebook page for the blog.  It felt like the right time to go public. Haha!  "Like" us by clicking the box in the right side bar! Thank You!
