Teary Eyed & Clingy

Those are two of the most frustrating signs of separation anxiety. Gavin has it BAD! This pretty much just started out of nowhere! He has always been so good with strangers and it's not like I just leave him with random people either. We do the same thing every day. But for the last two weeks, Gavin has been waking up crying and not wanting to go to bed when I lay him down.

And then today, the dreaded happened.... He FREAKED OUT when I was leaving him at daycare to go to work :( I did everything right. Gave him a kiss, said goodbye, walked away & got in my car. Then cried my eyes out. lol.

To be honest, I'm exhausted. Daddy hasn't been home in a week & 1/2 and Gavin has been like this every.single.second. I can't even pee without him crying that I'm not with him.

I told D, that this mother's day, I'm sleeping in and taking a loonnnnggg nap! lol. It is a little gratifying that we have formed a bond that is obvious now, and he wants his mommy. But, it's tough when you are the only one at home to do everything.

This is a pointless post, I know. I just keep repeating what my mom always says. "This too shall pass!" It just needs to hurry up!!

Could he be getting more teeth in? Rylie was cranky for 2mos after her 1st bday I remember & then outta no where the last teeth all came in at once. It may also be that since Daddy's been gone on work for awhile he's afraid you're goin to be gone for awhile too every time you leave? I hope you get a good break this weekend!! I know it's hard to think about now, but once he's in college you'll wish he was this clingy to you again ;-)
