I am a Daddy’s Girl. After my mum passed away when I was 10, I think that left me to dote upon. The others were 14, 15, 17 and 18, well pass the doting age. So yes, I’m Daddy’s Girl. I remember daddy used to buy my favourite foods for me for supper. He was a policeman you see and he worked late quite often. I would wait patiently for him to come home with some special treat for me. I find that Daddies often show their love to their kids with food. Hahaha.
Before I had kids, those I know who had kids told me that opposites attract. You’ll find that boys are closer to mums and girls are closer to dads. “You’ll see” they said knowingly.
Well now that I have a boy and a girl, I find it quite true. My girl is close to her dad and my boy is close to me. Somehow my girl has a special bond with her dad. We put it down to the fact that because she was the firstborn he spent a lot of time helping me out with her like walking and rocking her to sleep when she cried etc.
Having said this, I would however like to add that both my kids are close to me, girl as well as boy. Closer to me than they are to their dads. “Thats because you have the advantage of time.” hubby tells me jealously. Hahaha. He’s probably right. The more time you spend with them, the more they bond with you. I’ve often said that that is the reason why people should not let their kids spend so much time with their maids.
I’m really curious. Do opposites really attract? Are you a mummy’s boy or a daddy’s girl? And what about your kids? Is it the same way too?
