I get that completely.

Sometimes I'm just ready to send him back to work for the day. DH comes home and wants a break, but sometimes that means DD is tantrum'ing for his attention and he's withholding it. And when she gets tired of it, she comes to me in the kitchen and then he's all suddenly 'come here' and takes over. But the times when he allows her to flounder, drives me insane.
