Please... The umbilical cord was cut 4 1/2 YEARS ago!!
I am talking about my daughter Maili.
Oh my goodness she is a Momma's girl. She is attached to my hip constantly and barely lets me have a minute to myself. I have even woken up in the middle of the night with her laying next-to or on-top of me in bed. She is a helper in nature and likes to help me with EVERYTHING and because she has what I like to call "Sassy Stubbornness" she likes things her way and if I don't say, fold the clothes like she likes them...she refolds them her way. So ultimately I am forced to wait for her naptime or bedtime to redo the folding back to the way I had them so there isn't a complete meltdown.
I honestly LOVE how she wants to be with me, don't get me wrong...after being a mom to only boys for so long...Maili's girlyness is such a welcomed thing...But sometimes I wish I had some breathe time.
I wonder...do any of you have "Mommy's helpers?"
How did/do you handle it without going totally insane with a child who is attached to you constantly?
What are some detachment techniques you used when you need a break?
