I'm pretty sure my kid hates me.
He's fine when other people
are around, but as soon as grandma and grandpa leave, or daddy goes to
work-- he screams inconsolably.
I chocked it up to teething or a
wonky nap schedule the first couple of days, but it has become a very
consistent pattern of happy and content around everyone (the kid doesn't
know about stranger danger) and wailing miserably when left alone with
I'm a nice person. Really. I am trying very hard to be
accommodating to your needs, and comforting to your fears... and patient
and loving even though I am tired and heartbroken.
But all I get is anger and tears and gnashing of teeth.
Well, there would be gnashing of teeth if there were more teeth to gnash.
am still holding out hope though, that this might all have something to
do with the aquisition of teeth and not as much with an innate hatred
for a small one's maternal parental unit.
Sigh. Tough break.
I tell you what.
