Let me preface this by saying there are far worse problems, but ... I am maxiMum flavour of the month in our house ATM. The kids are just all over me, all the time, I'm exhausted! I mean, we are all used to the lack of privacy and cold coffee but it's getting ridiculous! I'm not allowed speak to other parents, or dh even, they have to be holding my hand or clinging onto my leg. They climb up onto me and physically turn my head away from whoever I am talking to. DH gets so little attention it's not funny. Story time at playgroup today, one was doing my makeup with a flower while the other hung off my back. To have lunch today I had to tell dd2 to go away (nicely). Dd1 cling to me at Kindy drop off and raved about how much she would miss me.
Now I know there are worse problems to have and God knows there was a time when dd1 in particular was worryingly unaffectionate (to the point we were concerned about possible autism) but geez this is a complete full circle, I can hardly breathe for little bodies all over me.
What do I have to do? When does this phase stop? I'm considering being deliberately mean to them just to get some space... Well not really but the thought has crossed my mind
ETA they get heaps of attention so it's not like they are neglected, how much attention can a child really need? Is that a dumb question?
