why doesnt my 2 yo step son like me anymore?

I have a 2 to stepson and have been around since before he was born . All of a sudden within the last month he doesn't want anything to do with me unless I am his only option. He only wants his father. I don't want to compromise my parenting just so he likes me but I didn't expect that even though I'm great to him he wouldnt like me. My boyfriend gets upset when this bothers me and doesn't think I should be hurt. Need some guidance and reassurance. Is this normal, am I doing something wrong, is it always going to be this way?

I think it's natural for kids to go through 'parent preferences'. It's usually nothing personal. Just keep on being your awesome stepmom-self. ;)
