I love her most of the time, but she's just so annoying right now. I'm not sure if it's me, or just stressed or what. I'd never hurt her or anything, I just don't want to be around her all the time. She's so clingy. She's 2 and a half and only wants mommy. She's fine with grandma or just daddy. But if I'm around it's whinning all the time. "I need up" "hold me" "mommy come here" mommy this and mommy that. I can't pee without her in there or crying at the door. Mommy has to give the bath and take to the potty. "I want this." When she gets it," I don't want it." when I take it back, "I want it." It's so frustrating. Please tell me they outgrow this stage. I'd much rather have a baby any day!
Anyone else feel this way? And save me the you're a mom, deal with it speaches. I understand. But that doesn't mean I'm not allowed to be overwhelmed or frustrated from time to time and allowed to vent.

Um obviously there is a reason your child is feeling clingly.. maybe you are just not being very motherly and she can sense that. You don't sound motherly to me at all. A real mother would understand that this is a child's way of gaining your attention because they are feeling lonely, or sad, or upset about something. Geez... I am so glad you aren't my mom!! Poor kid!!!
