  • Toddlers and preschoolers do not like change. That's actually putting it mildly. Most toddlers handle change about as well as a cat handles a bath.
    I don't know if it would help at all but you might try a "welcome home" ritual. Snuggle and read a special story and eat a special treat that you only have at this time. It might help her just like a bedtime routine helps - it would signal the change from "weekend with dad" back to "weekdays with mom".
