When I do go out without him, which is only ever for max 3hrs at a time, I have to sneak out without him seeing me. He is generally fine with dad or the grandparents while I am gone, but wants me as soon as I return. I have no issues with that, I give him all the attention he needs.
I am a stay at home mom and I still breastfeed so Im always home in time for nap or bed time so I'm never gone long. I pick him up when he cries and comfort him, perhaps a little too much now that he has learned it always gets my attention. I'm no Suzy homemaker so I dont ignore him to clean very much. Its rare that he will even sit on the couch with his dad or anyone else except me...hes actually quite rude (facial expressions mostly) when people try to pick him up or even hand him a toy...it always has to be me.
99% of the time I love that he wants me, but its a bit much when I cant even fold some laundry or go pee without a melt down. Most of the time its actual tears, like hes really scared I'm going to leave. What can I do??? I dont want to let him cry, but I need to be able to breathe too.
