DD2 is 17 months old and is driving me absolutely insane as she is super clingy. She wants to be held all the time. This isn't anything new, either and its not coz she is in pain or anything. I can't even sit down while holding her, I have to be standing up
It doesn't help that DD1 is also super clingy and follows me around the house like a lost dog.
I feel like these children are still attached to me by some invisible cord or something.
Just a vent really, coz I don't think there is much I can do. DH has a day off coming up, I'll ditch the kids and go out for a much deserved break.

I know how you feel! It's a tough gig sometimes!! Hope you get some much needed rest once DH returns just think, this too shall pass! I just try to respond to my sons (very demanding) needs now and realise it does and will pay off in the end. Hope you have a good rest tonight.

I hear you. Both my girls are the same, i cant go any where without them.
The standing while holding thing drives me NUTS. Kinda hard to hold a 12kg toddler while standing.

my ds was the same until enough was enough, i decided not to give into the whining and whinging anymore ("i want to come up, NO") he threw tantrums and i ignored it , now he knows not to follow mummy around like a lost puppy and he only comes up when i want him to, giving in to him was the worse thing i did and not giving in was the best thing i did
