Fact: Elliot doesn't like his mom right now. He's gone beyond 'favoring' Fred and into full-on not liking me.
Supporting Evidence: My name is often Wicked Witch or Mr. DaddyPants and when I told him 'I love you' this weekend, he retorted with 'I love Dad.' I ask to put him to bed and he flees from me as though I asked that with a chainsaw in hand.
Proof: All pictures from this Mother's Day weekend are of him and Fred.
And me, of course, following behind them taking pictures.
