I had big plans to get a lot done around the house today and go running this morning, but that was quickly kaboshed. The boys decided to get up earlier than normal this morning, so the running didn’t happen. Then as the day went on, Cal was extremely and I mean extremely clingy. Not only couldn’t I go out of his site without his crying, but if he could he would have crawled up my leg.
He has also been going through a stranger danger lately. He doesn’t like strangers and gets upset if he goes to someone new. I never and I mean never really experienced this with CJ. It’s truly a new experience. As my Mom reminds me, each child is different. Very true but still… it’s frustrating when you are trying to get cleaning done.
Another interesting thing, Mom pointed out, my oh so wise Mom! – he was breastfed longer than CJ was so that connection might create more of an attachment. This was something I never considered, but I get it. What would I do without my Mom’s wisdom? At times I think I’d be lost and wouldn’t be as good of a Mom myself without her support. I am honored to have such a knowledgable and support Mom to help me understand and get through meltdowns.
