My daughter just turned 3 YO and she has been very sticky with me.
I have just delivered #2 (son).
My daughter has also been feeling very insecure lately.
Every morning I will come up with stories, ie:
1) Can you push this trolley to por por house for por por pls. Mommy will wait here for you. Pls come back soon ya.
2) Por por is at the market, let's go and help her pick up the vegetables (then I will find excuse to escape while in the lift)
3) Can you help to bring your baby(a baby doll wrapped up with #2 swaddle) to por por to take care. Mommy cannot take care of 2 babies.
4) Can you help mommy buy some ice cream back pls. (gives her 20 cents to hold)
These are the little tricks I need to come up with every morning to make her move out of the house to go school.
I also have issue asking her to put on her uniform...but if she doesn't want to put on her uniform then I will ask teacher to help in childcare.
I communicate alot with her teachers because I want them to know what is happening to her at hm and at the same time what is happening to her in sch.
What upsets me the most is one night she cried out: "Mommy! mommy!" and started crying.
I supposed it is because of #2. She prob feel mom prefer to carry didi than her but it is not the case. I had csect and cannot carry my #1 who is over 10 over kg. The last time i carried her when I was 5 mths, I had major bleeding and was hospitalised.
