Petty competition - am I winning?
So we all know the super bowl is coming up this weekend and my husband is a HUGE diehard fan of team X. SD(5)’s soon to be step dad is a big fan of team Z. Team X and Z are head to head this year.
At dinner tonight, we talked about logistics for the game this weekend, and SD said “Mom told me to cheer for Z this weekend!”. We have SD over the weekend.
Due to their past I know that SD’s Mom knows who my husband cheers for. I was really bummed out. I hate the idea of programming a little girl to cheer against her Dad, on Dad’s week. I wouldn’t give a crap who she cheers for if the game was on her Mom’s week (custody is 50/50) but knowing how big of a fan my husband is (he even got a little team X shirt for SD) it kind of broke my heart hearing SD say she wouldn’t cheer with him this weekend.
How do I stop caring? Am I being equally petty by caring this much.
