I want my mommy!

This is what I hear 24 hours a day right now. 2.5 yo DS is suddenly cling-monster incorporated. It's sweet on one hand because he spends all his time telling me how much he loves me, but it's totally suffocating...I can't move, talk, breathe without him wanting me to hold him or play. Phase? Maybe related to the hubbub of Christmas? I adore him and I love all the hugs and kisses but he's even coming in our room around 4 am and sharing my pillow. I'm not one who can take it without some downtime which I am NOT getting right now in any more than an occasional 30 minute break (aside from work which frankly does not count).

I hope it is different for you, but my kids were always like this until about 3.5.

Re: I want my mommy!

I noticed this was getting especially bad around here too. This afternoon we were at the grocery store. I was pushing DS in one cart and DH was pushing DD in another cart. The whole time we were in the store she was yelling "I want Mama" "I want Mama" and trying to climb out of the cart even though I was only a few steps away and always in sight.

My 27 month old just started this too. "I NEED you, mommy!" He usually won't let DH put him to bed anymore... It has to be me

Re: I want my mommy!

My daughter was like that when she was around 2.5 years old. She's past that age now and has adjusted to being away from me like sleeping in her own room.
