    Default Please tell me this is just a phase

    ... Its breaking my heart. DD1 (2.5 years) tells me everyday "Me no like mommy. Me see daddy/grandma/grandpa/uncle".

    She won't let me sing to her or snuggle with her. She won't let me put her to bed. She won't take food from me.

    I feel like the worst mom ever and I dont even know what I've done to make her say/do these things. I don't know what to do about it. I'm HOPING its just excessive sleep deprivation that is making her so cranky towards me.. but why am I the only one to get the short end of the stick here? I try so hard to be a good mom, but I feel like I am failing miserabley.

    It's a good sign. She is venting frustration/anxiety/all the bad emotions to you because she knows no matter what you will love her and always be there.

    Just say “But I love you“ and keep being the wonderful mom you are.

    All kids do it at some point, don't feel bad Jess, its not you. Mommy is the person who will always love them, no matter what they say or do. They can let out their frustrations and anger at mommy and she'll still love them. If she's this sleep deprived maybe work on getting her to bed earlier and hopefully she'll get back to herself.

    Is she waking up during the night? I found a little before that age ds would get up multiple times during the night and we gradually eased his bedtime from 9pm to 7:30pm and he started sleeping through the night and was a lot better.

    She's a girl...it's great that she loves her daddy ~ mine went through the same thing. Now she's 3.5 and still adores her father but has warmed up to me.

    this!

    she see's you the most so you are the one she is going to say these things too! if my DS could talk i'm sure he would say the same to me!!!! he prefers his dad when ever we are home together.
