the past few days have been rough, to say the least.
i remember m's pediatrician telling me that,
at around fifteen months, they see a surge of separation anxiety in most kids.
well, like clockwork, on her fifteen month birthday it kicked in...
if i take more than a step away from her,
she screams at the top of her lungs and thrashes her body.
even ivo is unable to soothe or calm her down.
i feel terrible that, a few times this weekend,
i wanted to run, screaming from my house.
i just wanted to get away.
it's made me feel really down.
i feel terrible that she's scared to be away from me.
is this caused by the fact that we're together 24/7?
i'm probably away from her, no more than, one to two hours a week.
is it too much?
or, is it something that's natural?
my friend randi once said to me, "the only way to get through it, is to go through it".
and, she's right.
i just hope this faze ends sooner than later.
it's stressful for the both of us.
sorry for being such a debbie downer.
just needed to vent.
