it happens and happens often, greyson james prefers daddy to me, mommy, the one who carried him for 9 LONG months and pushed his big head out of my little vagina (insert jokes if you must). daddy walks in the room and it’s as though his savior has walked in, he gets the biggest damn smile on his face. sure, greyson james lights up when I take him out of his crib, but that’s just because I have rescued him from his mini prison. sure, he reaches for me when I take him out of his exersaucer, but that’s just because I rescued him from that confinement as well….or maybe he thinks he is about to get fed :). if daddy and I reach for him, he goes to daddy, the almighty, wonderful daddy. would I prefer him to shun his dad, flip him the bird? wellllll….ok, I kid. I now know what the saying chopped liver means and feels like though, lol. all kidding aside, well mostly kidding anyway, I do think it’s wonderful that greyson has such a great daddy and that greyson realizes it too…..but damn, could I get a little of that bright smile WHILE daddy is in the room too?! jeesh! daddy tries to make excuses for being the preferred one, why greyson doesn’t reach for me when daddy is holding him (he’s tired, he’s blah blah blah) and while I appreciate the effort, I also know deep down he is smiling smugly. jerk 🙂

when I first started adventures with greyson there was only greyson, little brother gavin wasn’t in the works yet :). having a blog that is dedicated to greyson seems unfair to his little brother. I don’t want gavin to ever feel second best in our household. gavin is just as important to our family as greyson is. when we decided to have another child my thought process was it will be good for greyson. he will have someone to follow, learn from. his sibling will also have this back should the need arise. while I still hope for that, it isn’t gavin’s purpose in life nor his responsibility. if he chooses to be a “big” brother, great! if not, that’s ok too. my only real hope is that they are very close as brothers, thick as thieves as the saying goes. I hope there are many adventures with greyson and gavin, with and without me! 🙂 adventures with greyson’s name will soon be changing, as soon as I can think of something cute and clever that incorporates both kiddos and that wordpress accepts. Any suggestions?
