Mom records her daughter’s reaction to seeing her in the morning instead of Daddy – and the TikTok video she posted is absolutely PRICELESS!

Every parent knows that babies and toddlers love to play the ‘favorite’ game. Often in the earlier stages, it’s Mommy. And then Dad can become the one they want more of. It can be funny, frustrating and even painful. Anyone who hasn’t been the favorite parent for a period of weeks knows this is facts.

As your little one grows and the dynamics of the ‘favorite’ game evolve, another milestone enters the sceneβ€”potty training. Suddenly, the allure of being the preferred parent takes on a new dimension, as the task of guiding your child through this developmental phase requires patience, consistency, and a touch of humor. As you navigate the challenges of potty training, you may find yourself turning to various baby products designed to ease the process. From colorful training pants to interactive potty training books, these carefully chosen items become essential tools in your parenting arsenal, offering both practical assistance and a sprinkle of fun to an otherwise transformative journey.

The quest to become the favored parent now intertwines with the art of selecting the right baby products to facilitate potty training success. As you introduce these tools into your daily routine, you might notice a shift in your child’s preferences, as moments of triumph in the bathroom become associated with the support and encouragement provided by the parent involved. Navigating the unpredictable nature of potty training while maintaining a sense of humor is key, creating a unique chapter in the ever-changing narrative of parenting and the coveted title of the “favorite” caregiver.

One mom – who goes by @b.rileybabbles on the social platform TikTok – decided to video her daughter’s reaction to seeing her one morning and share it with the world. The hilarious result has gone viral, racking up 8.8 million views, 1.6 million Likes, nearly 10k Comments and more than 50k Shares.

Clearly it struck a relatable nerve with parents!

Here’s the HILARIOUS video!

@b.rileybabblesI wake her up every morning and it never fails that she yells dada πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜’ #DoTheScottsSlide #TrulyGlowingSelfieLove #viral #toddler #fyp♬ original sound – B.RileyBabbles

“I wake her up every morning and it never fails that she yells dada πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜’”, Mom posted with the video.

The text overlay also reads, “She’d rather see her daddy 😭😭 I feel betrayed! 12hrs of labor!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚”

Mom uses the ‘face with tears of joy’ or the ‘crying with laughter’ emoji in both – it’s either laugh or cry when you’re not the favorite parent, right?! 

One of the most hilarious moments of the video is when sweet baby Braelynn in wearing one of his funny onesies for babies and expresses her true feelings about seeing Mom instead of Dad by saying, “Oh Lordy”.

We totally understand why Mom felt betrayed.

Mom has continued to share sweet and funny Daddy-Daughter moments on their TikTok channel, like these:

“My hubby has been stolen by a toddler πŸ˜’πŸ˜‚”


“We are a family of music❀️”
