My son goes through phases where he likes one parent more than another. But, at this age, I find that kids will do ANYTHING to get attention. They want to have control over their world and will do everything in their power to get some control. The best thing you can do is schedule some daddy-daughter time where you aren't there. And just let them build a relationship. Don't ask her if she likes daddy, just ignore that part.

Our D was like that too and to some extent still is. With her it's mostly manipulation her part (she is a pro). Dad couldn't fill her sippy, get her a snack, etc etc. Instead of me doing it I said well mommy sometimes needs help and it daddy can't do it then you can't have it. That changed her tune. Also try to ignore her comments and make sure she has one on one time with him. Good luck!

Has she maybe seen a movie with something like that in it? My 3yo is so wrapped up in movies and tv sometimes and constantly acts out stuff. She tells my DH that I lock her in her room because her hair is too pretty...she is acting out the movie Tangled! Or, maybe she heard it somewhere. They are so impressionable and hear everything...they are like little sponges!
