Hi everyone, just a question.
My dd is 15 months and I am a SAHM. I take her with me everywhere. Shops, appointments etc. I never ever leave her at my mums/mother in law unless it's a complete necessity. It's not that I don't trust anyone it's just they both have busy lives and so far I havnt struggled having her with me. Being home I tend to stretch things that need to be done over so many days so if I do need to go out it's only for short trips which helps her not have a meltdown (so far) lol
So last night I went out for a girls night for the first time since August last year. Dh was home looking after her but since the person picking me up was late and dd was extremely tired I ended up putting her to sleep before I left which was only 20min earlier than her usual bedtime. She went down within 1 min so I'm guessing she was very very tired. Then I left.
My dh text me at 9.30pn that dd woke and noticed it wasn't me who went to shush and pat her back (my dh never goes in) and that was it. Her world came crashing down and cried for mummy for 1 hour! By this point I was ready to leave and go home as I felt so much guilt it was not worth the outing. Anyways after a lot of calming and then a bit of playing I came home at 12.30am to find them both in bed crashed out. Apparently she crashed about 11.30pm.
Sorry such a long post but my question is is this normal? Will she grow out of it? I honestly don't mind her always wanting me when I'm at home but I now am completely put off eveing thinking of doing anything with the girls ever again. I felt so guilty it was just not worth it. I guess she didn't hold a grudge as I got a big kiss and hug this morning... 😊😊
