You've mismanaged their expectations. That's a common failure mode of parts people who are good at what they do and not lazy.
 
You have to give them a certain amount of disappointment, too. Not so much that they want to get rid of you, but just enough so that they won't take success for granted. Then every time you give them a little nugget of success, they're not so spoiled that they won't even notice.
