Hey, everything you have written there I could have written myself a few years ago. I now have two little girls who I couldn’t be closer to. My wife has just come back from a week away and we had the best time.
A child that has that close a bond with one parent is really hard on both of you, but it really is for a period of time. Although it won’t feel like it right now.
Without a doubt the best advice I can give is don’t take it to heart. It’s really common, Normal.
Try and keep in mind that everything is a phase at that age. It will feel at times that you have entered a really dark change, but it’s not, they change all the time so before you know it your little one will be all over you.
Of course all the good stuff is also a phase, but that’s a whole other conversation for another day!
