Hey mummas and everyone! This is my first forum so please be gentle!
I am desperate for some support and kindness in the motherhood rhelm! So thanks in advance.
So this is what has been happening. I have been experiencing this since Christmas holidays Dec, and it's now Feb....... Many people have said "it's just a phase..." "She's going through a stage..." or "oh wow! My child never wanted to go to anyone but me!!! That's odd........." I know she does ' put it on' when daddy comes home. She crys, whinges, screams till she is with her daddy and he picks her up and holds her. When he comes home, she sooks at his feet till he picks her up & is carrying her everywhere. If he is around and I'm trying to give her a meal, she won't have a bar of it, unless she sits with him. I tell hubby to harden up and make him aware of what is happening, but it just continues, hes a pile of pudding for her. I don't let her get away with it.
The hardest part was when she was really Ill a few weeks ago, to the point we were @ the Childrens & she was on a drip o/n and she would turn hysrterical when hubby needed a break & wanted me to hold her. When I temporarily held her, she became so distressed that I was bawling my eyes out, my daughter too and the hospital saw us sooner. It completely shattered my heart...............I felt like a complete failier as a mother.... my own daughter of 18 mths old didn't want me to comfort her.....I have never done anything to hurt her. I love her more than life its self!
I feel like such a **** mum.
Sorry mummas but this has really been eating me up inside. Any kind words are generously welcomed.
