Got period today so realising I’m probably being completely ridiculous/over sensitive...was upstairs getting ready to go for a walk with Dp, dog and toddler Dd when heard her say to dp ‘I don’t want mummy to come for a walk, I want her to stay at home and not come, I don’t want her to come, only daddy’
Was just a bit sad 🙈12 hours per day doing everything and the dad sweeps in and always gets all the glory!

Toddlers can be cutting like this! It's not you!
My 4 yo still always chooses Daddy but I think it's because he's just used to me being available all the time.

Stay at home and put your feet up then! Win win! Wink


Keeva2017 · 25/03/2021 18:36

My daughter is brutal like this. So cutting! Don’t take it personally.


Sciurus83 · 25/03/2021 18:39

My 2 year old is like this also. She is a complete knobhead.

(Lighthearted obvs)

Toddlers are dicks. Send them away and enjoy the peace.

'Well, who'd want to go on a boring old walk with you anyway, brat?!'

My toddler says equally as cutting remarks take it with a pinch of salt. 5 mins later I’m being told how I’m the favourite and how much he loves me!

@Sciurus83 😂

ScarfaceCwaw · 25/03/2021 18:42

That's just toddlers for you.

Let them go and enjoy the peace. We'll see who she runs to next time she bumps her knee Grin


Caterina99 · 25/03/2021 18:43

I love it when mine say that. Byeeeee and I’ll enjoy the peace and quiet as I spend 12 hours a day with them, every day.

But yes I agree it is cutting


tubbycustardtummyache · 25/03/2021 18:43

Toddlers can be dicks. Mine is too!


TheGumption · 25/03/2021 18:43

I'd be delighted. Bit of peace and quiet!


AnaisNun · 25/03/2021 18:44

My four year old regularly tells me to go away when his grandmas here, and excludes me from their play/conversation etc.

I just let it go. He’s small. He loves his gran. Mums the one with rules and nagging.

I get it. I’d want to hang out with gran too!


TillyTopper · 25/03/2021 18:44

Take the win! Toddlers are very fickle!


PurpleMustang · 25/03/2021 18:44

They don't mean it to be so brutal. Kids just say it how they think with no filter. "I hate you" phase is always a joy. If you are there a lot of the time it honestly won't hurt for them to have some one on one and you have a break


Chunkymenrock · 25/03/2021 18:45

Yes, send them out alone then. I wouldn't go after hearing that.


Aroundtheworldin80moves · 25/03/2021 18:46

We used to have this. I met the school bus everyday. Had the school bags chucked at me while they skipped off. Or grumbled.
DH met the school bus once in a blue moon... Straight into his arms for hugs. (To be fair... He was often working away).

They are so used to us being there they don't appreciate it.


Livpool · 25/03/2021 18:51

DS is 5 and can be like this - although usually towards DH so I don't get time off! Don't take it personally and DO take the chance to relax


MessAllOver · 25/03/2021 18:55

I don't want to go. The difference is, unlike my toddler, I'm polite enough not to articulate that I've had it up to here with him. Why shouldn't the feeling be mutual occasionally?


Smartiepants79 · 25/03/2021 18:55

My 8 yr old has just nearly had me in tears due to some things similar. Children can be bastards!
I’ve been at work all day, I do A LOT for them. I asked her a question about her day and she glared at me and said in a tone of disgust ‘I don’t want to talk to you’.....
It really hurt my feelings.
We’ve discussed it since and we’ll be friends before bed but it really bothers me.
She’d be beside herself with fury and upset if anyone did similar to her!


StrudelSoup · 25/03/2021 18:59

Both my DD's were like this. My eldest - it was the all singing all dancing Daddy parade while treating me like a piece of shit Youngest, at the moment it's me who is "the favourite". I think a lot of it is them testing out their new found power of language and seeing what it can do to people. Youngest isn't even subtle, "I love you so much" followed by, "can I have a teaspoon of Nutella?"


Pinklittle · 25/03/2021 19:04

My 3 year old is exactly the same, Daddy is fun and Mummy is not :( certainly brutal, enjoy the peace and quiet xx


Onedropbeat · 25/03/2021 19:07

My son used to tell me that he’d prefer me to go to work and daddy stay at home
He also told me he loved the cat more than me

He was only 2

He’s lovely now

He was quite pleased when I told him I’d be going back to work soon though


Helookslikeamuppet · 25/03/2021 19:09

I’ve stayed at home, eating nachos!

It’s that she said it when I wasn’t there 🙈haven’t heard that before, she often says she wants daddy to take her to bed when it’s my turn, but a lot of that is because I’m two stories and lights out, whereas he lets her watch videos on his phone 🙄of course he’s more fun.
I’m just curious why she didn’t want me there 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣
