Aww. It’s okay. I’m a SAHM and my kids have said this as well, sometimes it’s they just want dad, sometimes it’s me. It’s wonderful to feel like the one your kid wants (basically when they’re bored because you’re viewed as the more fun parent) but remember that a lot more goes into childhood than the ‘being entertained’ bits. And I’m sure your son will say he just wants you in the future as well—please don’t worry about it. Mom-guilt is real and I’m so sorry you feel guilty. But there is nothing here to feel bad about!
