Only has eyes for daddy. Can you relate?

I need some feedback, please. I'm new on here and I'm in need of some of your thoughts. I have a 22 month old daughter who is a tried-and-true Daddy's Girl. I'm a preschool teacher-turned-SAHM and we are together all of the time. We go to the park every day. We play. I try to have regular adventures with her. And she is mostly a smart, pleasant little girl. But she has always preferred her daddy to me. When she wakes in the morning she calls for him and when I go get her, which I do 99% of the time, she'll cry, "No! I want daddy to hold me, not mommy!" and she'll kick at me. If daddy goes in she'll lay her head on his shoulder and snuggle in. If she's hurt she can only be comforted my daddy and if he's at work and I try to comfort or kiss a boo boo I get, "no! It won't make it better." She'll snuggle up with daddy and sleep but doesn't want me to touch her. Sick? Daddy. Sleepy? Daddy. You'd think I'd be used to it after almost 2 years but I'm totally not. I still cry sometimes afte she's in bed. Can anyone our there relate?

that's true. i should look at it as "practice" for when she wears her hair straight down in her face and stays in her room all day. :)

Thank you for your response. It makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one who's not their child's favorite person. In my circle of IRL friends all of their kids are all about Mommy. It kills me!
