We had tears at drop off again today. It's hard because he's been going to the same ELC for over 2 years now and knows everyone and up until last week he has never once cried on drop off, often he just yells 'bye mummy' happily from across the playground or gives me a quick kiss and runs off. But today (and last week) he's clingy to me, sulking, saying I don't want you to go mummy. It's heartbreaking, eventually I had to get the room leader to pry him off me so I could get to work.
He was really happy to be going this morning, excited, talking about what he was going to play with etc. Just the part when I went to leave it went pear shaped 😭

Did he go on holidays over Christmas? Or not go to care for a week or two? DS is like this due to being out of routine so could that explain a little of it as well?

Maybe a combo of back to routine and the impending baby? I don't know.... It's definitely mummy focussed.

We went through this with DSD at about 3.5 but there was no baby on the way.
I'm not saying that is not a contributing factor, but it may also just be his age. And, yes, the scarily graphic dreams come out around then.
